Lessons are available as one-on-one private lessons or in classes of 3 to 10 students.
There are many benefits to learning in a class setting. Students learn how to play together which improves their overall musicianship. Students learn from each other and are propelled forward by seeing the success of their peers. Group lessons are also much more cost effective!
Length: 60 min
Note: If there are not enough students to form a class I offer a reduced-rate 30-minute private lesson at $30 until enough students are available.
Private lessons offer a personalized focused experience that cater to the needs of the student. These are also available by Skype if you do not live in the Williamsburg area.
Length: 30 min

Tuition Payment Info
Tuition payments are due at the beginning of each month, and reserve a weekly lesson time. Students will receive an invoice by email where payment can be made online by credit card or through a bank transfer. Checks brought to the lesson should be made out to "Glenn Lavender." Notification of inability to attend a lesson is a courtesy to the teacher but does not excuse payment. THERE ARE NO CREDITS OR REFUNDS FOR STUDENT ABSENCES. Therefore, there is no reduction in tuition for a missed lesson. Make-up lessons may be available at the discretion and availability of the teacher. Monthly tuition may be adjusted for vacations with a minimum of 2 weeks notice to the teacher. Students wishing to discontinue lessons must notify their teacher at least 24 hours before the next scheduled lesson. Lessons will be charged until notice is received. Please note that if the teacher finds it necessary to cancel a lesson that is already paid, the lesson credit will be applied to the student's next unpaid lesson. The same policy applies to lessons cancelled due to inclement weather.
