Private Music Lessons
HB School of Music believes true progress in music can be made only by working steadily at a program tailored to the individual student. Our private classes are tailored to meet the individual needs of the student. Lessons may vary from 30 minutes to an hour, depending upon the progress of the student.
We teach basic music fundamentals, including note reading, rhythm, singing, and how to play various instruments. Using special teaching-techniques and games, students will learn to read music quickly. Rhythmic play will include teaching small children how to keep time to the beat of the music. Teachers use various creative methods in helping your child to understand different musical terms.
Having fun at the music lesson and accomplishing certain musical goals usually makes students eager to learn more. Of course, each student progresses at his or her own pace but practice is essential for progress and keeps the music lessons fun and exciting.
We find that piano, guitar, and violin are our most popular instruments. If something else is your style, say, flute, bass, viola, or saxophone maybe, we'd be happy to help. Just contact us for more information.
We usually start students with one 30-minute lesson per week, depending on the student's attention span, the instrument, and the student/parent's needs. Many students eventually move on to 45-minute or hour lessons.
The rates listed below include not only the lessons, but also all of the activities HBSM has offered for its students, from the make-up lessons to the recitals (i.e., participation in at least 6 recitals per year, at no extra cost), etc. Because progression is not only the lessons, it is an ensemble!
There is a one-time registration fee $25 per student ($40 per family) for all students.

* Pay-Per-Lesson is for those students who wish to take less consistent lessons, fortnightly or less often. This plan allows for greater flexibility of scheduling. Payment is required to be made at the time lessons are scheduled. Cancellation must be made 24 hours in advance.
** Month to Month (monthly tuition) is for students who wish to take consistent lessons. Students are required to commit to at least one lesson per week (4-5 lessons per month). The tuition fee is paid at the beginning of each month. The number of lessons billed is based solely on the number of lessons for your given day in the next month (e.g., if your lesson day is Monday and there are four Mondays in the month, you will be billed for four lessons, if there are five Mondays in the month, you will be billed for five, etc.). Lessons are pro-rated for new students according to their start date.
Semi-Private Lessons (2 students / teacher)
Semi-private lessons can be arranged for two students of similar age and skill level. This plan is most suitable for siblings or friends who want to have lessons together.
|Month to Month|
|30 min||$18/student per lesson - $72/student per month (4 weeks)|
|45 min||$25/student per lesson - $100/student per month (4 weeks)|
|60 min||$33/student per lesson - $122/student per month (4 weeks)|
Recitals boost confidence! Taking part in a recital helps performers to overcome shyness, fear, anxiety and stage fright. It gives students a chance to showcase all of their hard work, dedication, and progress throughout the year. As children experience getting on stage, performing for an audience, and being applauded for their efforts, they gain self-confidence that will carry with them in all aspects of school and life.
At HB School of Music, we offer a variety of opportunities for our students to perform in a confidence-boosting and supportive setting. We have 2 recitals every year, our Annual Recital in the Spring and a Winter Recital at the end of the year to showcase our students' progress. Students will also receive a trophy at the annual recital.
In addition to annual recitals held at an outside venue, we regularly host mini-recitals at Recital Hall of the school. This will give our students many more performance opportunities throughout the year. We always make sure that students get to perform on a grand piano. For our students these recitals are free.
Refer a Friend and Get Rewards!
We love referrals! Because we have such happy customers, we get a lot of new students through referrals. Getting your child’s friends involved with the program lets them share in similar interests and makes it all that more fun. Or maybe you have friends with children that love music and may want to start learning an instrument? Either way, as a way of saying thanks, we will gift both you and the referred family, each a FREE lesson! There is no limit to the amount of referrals you can make.
Frequently asked questions
What do I learn in my music lessons?
That question is often asked by prospective students. Our teachers make it a priority to get to know you on a personal level and to become familiar with your personal musical needs and goals.
We do not treat every student the same in terms of what and how we teach.
A seven year old having their first guitar lesson will have very different needs than a fifty-seven year old taking up piano for the 2nd time after having had lessons as a child.
The main reason to choose our school as your music lesson provider, is that we are sensitive to the fact that every student is an individual.
If you enroll here for lessons, we will work with you to make a plan that will fit your needs and musical preferences. At the first lesson your teacher will ask you about your favorite type of music, and set goals to help accomplish whatever musical aspirations you have for yourself or your child.
What styles of music do you teach?
We teach all styles from rock, pop, jazz, country, blues and classical.
Are your instructors qualified?
Our teachers have received their education from prestigious institutions such as California State University of Long Beach, Brigham Young University (Idaho), BAKIP Linz (Austria), and many others. Many of our instructors have gone on performance tours of the US and Europe and have over 25 years of professional performance and teaching experience. In addition to their teaching credentials, our teachers have warm personalities, are extremely friendly and strive to get to know each student and their parent on a personal level.
