We offer private lessons, for students of all ages, with highly talented, experienced, ministry-minded teachers in piano, guitar, bass, ukulele, drums, and strings (violin, viola, cello).

Instrumental Lesson Tuition

All lessons are $84.00 per month, which includes four 30-minute lessons. Lessons occur on a weekly basis on a day and at a time that is agreed between teacher and student/parent. In five-week months, lessons are held during the first four weeks only; however, teacher and student may agree to make up a missed lesson during the fifth week.

Instrument Requirements

Each student must have his/her own personal instrument for lessons and in order to practice between lessons. Specific requirements are noted within the bio of each instrument’s teacher. Also, instructors are happy to advise the student/ parent(s) or guardian(s) regarding choice of instrument.

Vocal Instruction:

Introduction to Vocal Performance:

Introduction to Vocal Performance is comprised of 3 months (12 consecutive weeks) of once-weekly ½ hour lessons.  It offers prospective vocal students an overview of vocal performance techniques and a concise period of basic vocal coaching/assessment.  At the end of the 3 month introductory period, students will receive the teacher’s assessment of vocal training needs and objectives as well as a proposed plan for private vocal lessons with Ms. Walston for students who wish to pursue on-going vocal training.  Cost – $84 per month with a finite, 3-month commitment.

Private Vocal Lessons:

Private Vocal Lessons with Mrs. Walston will provide in-depth, on-going instruction in vocal technique and performance for teenaged and adult vocal students wishing to develop their God-given vocal talents to their fullest potential.  Four ½ hour lessons per month are scheduled to occur weekly.  Cost – $95 per month, with a commitment to ongoing vocal training and a two-week notification requirement for termination of lessons.
