Private Lessons

Private lessons provide focused, one-on-one instruction with a master teacher.St. BenedictStudents will spend the lesson time being shown all that is necessary for them to practice during the week in preparation for their next lesson, so that they can consistently progress.

Semi-Private Lessons

Semi-Private lessons allow for two students in the same lesson with a master teacher. Students should be within 2 yrs of age of each other, studying the same instrument, at the same level.  As with private lessons, practice is the key to success.

Private and Semi-Private lessons are scheduled weekly during the term and are offered in 30, 45, or 60 minute intervals. Other than keyboards, which will be available for on-site use, each student must bring their own instrument to the lesson each week. Limited rentals from GRSM are available for keyboards, ukuleles and guitars at a rate of $20/month.

Recitals are included in tuition and will be held at the end of each semester for all registered students who are interested.

10% off tuition for third (or more) child
5% off tuition for second child or instrument (in a separate lesson)
