PRIVATE VOICE AND PIANO

Private voice and piano lessons are designed to educate the students by teaching them how to read music as well as proper singing and playing techniques. All students will be asked to practice for 30 minutes twice a week. Practice is essential for them to excel.  Each student will meet for 30 minutes each week.


Private classes are $65.00 per month and tuition is not pro-rated. A makeup class will be rescheduled if Jennifer is unable to teach for any reason. Up to two makeup classes will be given if student is unable to participate in class on any certain day during the season.


Each student will be asked to sing or play a solo or duet at our annual Spring showcase which is usually done with our dancers at Franklin County High School and if a student shows a lot of promise, Jennifer will speak with the parent about the possibility of entering them into talent contests throughout the season as well. 

Admission is free to our Spring showcase.


Private classes are not included in our unlimited class fees but are separate as they are specialized classes.
