KP MUSIC INSTRUCTION
NOTE: DUE TO COVID-19 KRISTA IS ONLY OFFERING VIRTUAL MUSIC LESSONS/TODDLER MUSIC TIME
Do you have a child who is musically inclined, interested in piano, voice and/or guitar lessons or needs a creative outlet that will help with so many other areas of life? Music positively impacts the brain by increasing intelligence, enhancing learning, concentration and creativity. With twenty years of experience and teaching students of all levels, Krista can cultivate the little musician that lives within every child. Many of Krista's students have gone on to perform in bands, become college music majors and have successful musical outlets and careers.
Not only will your child learn how to play an instrument; they will learn how to read music and apply music theory to their own songwriting ventures should they be interested in composition. With virtual recitals, your child will have the opportunity to share their progress with friends and family.
Music makes you smarter. Let's begin this journey together!
FALL 2020: Sign your child up for lessons and receive a 10% discount for your first month of lessons
Guitar, voice and piano lessons are offered virtually through programs Skype and Zoom on your computer. Payments are made through Venmo. Lessons must be paid for in advance on a monthly basis to hold your lesson slot time/day.
Lessons are offered at a discounted rate for group guitar and voice lessons. If you are interested in having your home available for your child and friends or neighbors who are also interested in lessons, group lessons or back to back private lessons at the same location, it will lower the cost for each student.
Lessons are to be paid for on a monthly basis. Payments are collected on the last lesson of each month for the following month so that your lessons are always paid for in advance thus securing your lesson time slot. If you don't live in or near the areas lessons are offered, you can consider virtual lessons. You can be guided you through your lessons each week face to face over the computer.
Half hour lesson per week: $140/month ($35/half hour)
Forty-five minute lesson per week: ($175/month)
Hour lesson per week: $260/month ($65/hour)
Virtual lessons offered for Guitar & Piano: $140/month ($35/half hour)
VIRTUAL TODDLER TIME MUSIC:
Music positively impacts a child's development. Toddler time music is a perfect way to introduce music to your little one. We will sing nursery rhymes and songs your child likes to learn melody while using hand instruments to introduce rhythm in a way a small child can understand. We use our hands and body to further feel rhythm. We will make up songs and apply what we learn to those songs! There are options to set up group virtual sessions with friends.
Toddler Time Rates:
30 minute music session: 1 child= $25, 2 children $20/per child, 3-5children ($15/per child)
Same policies apply to Toddler Time Music-see below

1. Payments are to be made on the last lesson of the proceeding month. Lesson/time slots are rented on a monthly basis. If payment is received on or after the 1st of the month, a late fee of $5 will be applied. (Due to Covid-19, Virtual lessons can be paid by Venmo or check)
2. Cancellation Policy: There are no refunds for cancelled lessons by students. However, one make up lesson is offered a month. Student will receive a makeup lesson anytime the teacher has to cancel. Some months have five weeks and the fifth week will be used for makeup lessons for any missed lessons. If the student hasn't missed any lessons, they will get a week off.
3. If taking a vacation that would allow you to miss more than one lesson in the month, you will receive one makeup lesson per month as previously stated. If you cannot commit to the whole month, it is suggested you give up your time slot. I cannot hold time slots unless they are paid for in advance but student can be put on the waiting list if the slot fills while they are away or taking a break from music lessons.
