Frequently Asked Questions

How much do lessons cost?

$60 for 1 hour

$30 for 30 min

How do lessons work?

Lessons typically happen on a weekly basis as a standing weekly appointment and must be booked a minimum of 72 hours in advance. Students are expected to practice for a minimum of 4 x 15 min intervals a week. Of course, the more frequently you practice, the faster you will see your skill progress. In a perfect world, students would be expected to practice for a duration equal to their lesson time, 7 days a week. However, we at ArcoMuse understand that we do not live in a perfect world; baby steps are still steps forward.

Where do the lessons happen?

Lessons can happen out of the comfort of your own home. My in-home studio is currently in progress and not yet available.

Do you teach remotely?

Yes, remote lessons are available to experienced students, however the occasional in-person lesson is encouraged.

Do I need my own instrument?

Yes, you will need your own instrument to use during lessons and at-home practice. Practicing between lessons is crucial to developing any new skill. I can make recommendations on where you can acquire an instrument (non-affiliated).

What genre of music do you teach?

While I am a classically trained violinist, I have a passion for teaching a variety of music including fiddle, pop, folk, Celtic, and of course classical.

Do you teach through RCM Exams or Auditions?

No, if you are looking to complete an RCM exam or need assistance in preparing for an upcoming audition, it is recommended that you seek lessons at an alternate studio. 

Do you offer performance opportunities?

Not at this time, however this is something I am hoping to offer students in the near future. Of course, no student will be forced into performing unless they desire it.

Do you teach any other instruments?

Not at this time.
