pricing & availability
- Once weekly sessions at a rate of $30 per 30 minutes (Most students stay with 30 minute lessons, however, some advanced students prefer 60 minute lessons.) - Our 12-week semester structure keeps re-enrollment down to 4 times per year for convenience. - Upon initial registration, we charge a one-time fee of $50 for registration. If more than 1 student is registered at the same time, each additional student is only charged $25 for registration. - Open for private lessons 6 days a week! Sunday - Friday (Hours vary) - Each of our instructors undergo annual background checks and performance reviews to keep our standards high! Please call or email for specific availability. Because these are 1-on-1 lessons with an instructor, our availability is limited.
- Students must wash their hands before the lesson begins. - Family and friends should wait in the car if possible. - Parents may come inside to register for events or pay tuition, but we ask that you limit your time inside the building. - Effective July 5, 2021, face coverings will be optional for all students, parents, and staff. (If your student or someone in your immediate household is high risk, you may request that your teacher wear a mask and we are happy to accommodate.) - Pianos and music stands are cleaned in between each student to maintain a clean environment. - If a student feels ill, please stay home! Remember to cancel on My Music Staff with 8-hour's notice to reschedule a lesson.
- District Federation Festival"Gold Cup" (usually in February or March) is a regional competition in which each student who registers must prepare 2 qualifying pieces to perform in front of a judge. This is for students under the age of 19 years old. - Spring Showcase(in April) is an event that combines instructor and student performances! Students over the age of 13 are able to audition to perform a piece within a particular "themed" genre. Our instructors enjoy performing too, so this is a fun opportunity to collaborate and create something unique and special! - All State Festival is in May each year and takes place at Texas State University in San Marcos. This is for the students who earn qualifying scores at the District Festival, and is also judged. - Summer recital / Awards Ceremony (usually in June) is exclusively for HMA students. This performance has very few requirements and is simply for the enjoyment of the students and their families and friends. This same day is when Harmony instructors get to present our students with awards they have earned over the past school year! - Era Recital is exclusively for HMA students. This is a judged performance in which each student must prepare 1 memorized piece from a designated Era. We rotate eras each year: Baroque, Classical, Romantic, etc. This gives students the opportunity to be challenged by pieces that are slightly more challenging and of a different genre than our other performances. - Pop Show (usually in October) is exclusively for HMA students. This performance is judged, but is also open to family and friends to attend. For this performance, we offer extra credit to the students who dress in character for the piece they have prepared! - Holiday Recital (in December) is exclusively for HMA students. This performance is not judged, and students are encouraged to invite friends and family!
