At the Conservatory of Music at Taylor, private lessons are taught in Piano, Guitar, Violin, Viola, Flute, Recorder, Theory, Harmony, History, Choral Conducting, and Praise Music.
Most teachers follow the school year when scheduling private lessons. Exceptions may be made for students taking exams. Each teacher may have a slightly different yearly teaching schedule.
Fee Schedule: Each instructor will clarify their fee with students when booking lessons. This varies with each instructor.
Lesson Cancellation Policy: Each instructor will explain their cancellation policy for missed lessons. This policy varies with each instructor.
Fees for examinations and festival entry are in addition to the cost of private lessons. Also, it is expected that each student will be prepared to purchase their own music and necessary materials for the year as suggested by their instructor.
