  • What are your rates?
    Tuition varies by semester, depending on the number of weeks in the semester. The upcoming semester information is in the About section of this website.
  • What if we have to miss a lesson?
    Two missed lessons are built into each semester. They can be used for illness, special events, or vacations.
  • What's a good age to start lessons?
    Kindergarten is a great time to start private lessons and students age 5 and older can usually stay by themselves. Younger students need more parental involvement in their lessons.
  • Where do I get an instrument?
    There are many options for finding an appropriate instrument. For string players, renting is usually a good option in the beginning. I recommend Classic VIolins in Mundelein. Their prices are good and they have excellent instruments. For piano students, an actual piano is best, but if a keyboard is a better option for your home, please find one with weighted actual size keys, such as a Yamaha Clavinova. For guitar and ukulele, please consult with Susan before purchasing an instrument and she'll be happy to help you make a good choice.
