In most cases, lessons can start as early as one week after registration.
Private Lessons are available Monday – Friday 9AM – 9PM & Saturday 9AM – 2PM
Our Private Lessons are one-on-one sessions between the student and the instructor. Certain programs, like our Musical Safari Programs and the Musical Theatre Program, have multiple students in the same class.
Private Lessons and Group Programs are held on a weekly basis. We do not operate on holidays/holiday weeks, and these dates are not included in the fees.
Private Lessons start at 30 minutes long. Most new students will start with this length.
Most Group Programs are also 30 minutes long. Certain programs for older students, such as the QSM Band, will run longer.
It takes most students 4-5 lessons to decide whether or not they want to continue.
We offer the opportunity for monthly payments, or a one-time annual payment.
Because of this arrangement, you may cancel after the first month if you don't feel things are working out. We do not offer trial lessons.
We ask that you register only if you intend to take lessons for the entire school year, for the sake of the student's development and respecting the instructor's time.
Most students may begin private lessons on the piano or drums at age 5. In rare cases, children further along in their development may start before then.
For those under the age of 5, we have our fun Musical Safari Program – a group music program which immerses the child in music and prepares them for private lessons!
Private Lessons are $95 per month. Enrolment in our Musical Safari Programs is $80 per month. All other group programs are $95 per month.

Lessons are processed by monthly recurring credit card card payment. A credit card must be provided when registering for registration to be processed.
Any additional family member who registers will be 10% off the normal cost of registration.
For those who make a one-time payment for the year of lessons, we offer a prepayment discount of $95.
These discounts are not able to be combined.
As we enter our 34th year, we recommend registering as soon as you are able. We have limited capacity due to very full staff schedules.
