        * Lessons will be tailored to meet individual students needs and interests.  The 45 minute lesson is the best value for most students as there is more time to explore concepts through games, work more in depth with such things as sightreading and ear training, or with difficult portions of the music.   Learning is more thorough and progress will be made more quickly.
