One-on-one lessons (piano) are 30 minutes for beginning/intermediate students or 45 minutes for advanced students. To take 45-minute lessons, students must have previous private lesson experience and instructor approval.  Students will have a recital opportunity each semester and may also participate in local area festivals (when available).  
Lessons are scheduled individually with the teacher. Once registered, the teacher will contact the student regarding a lesson time. Once a mutually agreed time is selected, no changes may be made. Lessons missed by the student will not be refunded or rescheduled. Students 18 years and older may take college-level applied music lessons for credit, either for music majors or for non-majors (avocational), but need to complete the KC application process to enroll.
