The Lesson Program is dedicated to providing underserved students opportunities for success. Through instrumental instruction, Hopewell teaches its students deliberate practice – the greatest indicator of achieving success in life and academics. Teachers focus lessons around building sound technique, basic music theory, and musicianship so that students will become artistically successful in expressing emotion through music. Lesson participants perform in bi-monthly recitals and community events.
Our sliding fee scale is based on the federal school lunch program income guidelines. We charge $20.00 for full price students, $10.00 for reduced and $0 for free students. Adult lesson fees are set at full price, however we are happy to make accommodations based on financial hardship. Not sure where you land? Please see the "Income Guidelines" document below.
For school aged children we require a copy of their federal lunch program letter. For adults, we require the most recently filled tax form with sensitive information blacked out.
Instrument rentals are available on a limited basis. Rental fees are also based on the federal school lunch program and are charged monthly. We charge $20.00 for full price students, $10.00 for reduced and $5 for free students.
Lessons are weekly and are 30 min long. 45 min and 60 min lessons are available for more advanced students upon request. Days/Times are based on availability of teacher and student for each semeste
