How to Sign Up for Lessons. . .
The easiest way to schedule a lesson is to email our lesson coordinator any time at email@example.com or call the House of Music at 612-929-2291.Office hours are somewhat irregular so please leave a message (roughly) 10:00AM - 3:00PM Monday through Friday. If noone is available to speak with you, PLEASE LEAVE A DETAILED MESSAGE with your name, number and a good time to call you back. We are not able to have a full time person on staff to answer phones so email is sometimes the easiest way to get us the information we need to get students enrolled.
Please email your name (first and last), the student's info (name, age, instrument, availability, and any musical history they might have), a phone number and good time to reach you. - firstname.lastname@example.org
Please let us know the instrument you are interested in playing, the day/s and time/s that you are available for lessons. We can match the teacher whose schedule and style fit you and your musical dreams.
Take a look at our Teachers page to learn more about prospective teachers.
What are the costs . . . Winter Semester 2017 - 1/3 through 4/1
The cost for each lesson is $30 per half hour and are paid for by the semester.
Longer lessons are also available. The cost of 45 minute lessons is $45, 60 minute lessons $60.
Lessons are scheduled by quarterly semesters. Our Winter 2017 semester begins January 3 and goes through April 1. 13 weeks total for Tuesday-Saturday students and 12 weeks for Monday students. If you missed the start of the semester you may join at any time there are openings with a teacher. Spring 2017 Semester begins April 10 and goes through June 10.
The total cost of the lessons for the semester will depend on the number of weeks in the semester (or remainder) and which day of the week your regular lesson is scheduled since certain holidays may fall on specific days of the week. The total number of lessons will be between 9-15 weeks, depending on the semester. When a student signs up for lessons at the beginning of a semester, we ask that the student commit to an entire semester. If you are a new student that missed the beginning of the semester, you can start at any time and pay for the remaining weeks of the semester.
Lessons are paid for in advance for the entire semester (or remainder) at the first lesson. If this presents a hardship for your budget, talk to the director, and/or teacher about an alternative payment arrangement.

We promise to listen to your musical hopes and dreams and match you with the teacher that best suits you and your goals.

As we grow, we strive to stay personal, flexible and keep the interests of our students at the top of our list.
You might say we are the “front porch” kind of school that brings people together...through music!
It is our goal to provide students and families the opportunities to experience music either as a performer or fan of music. We have two recitals seasons per year. One towards the end fo the Fall Semester and one towards the end of the Spring Semester. We also provide music for a variety of events that occur in our community, therefor providing many opportunities for students to perform
Even if you never become a student, we hope you'll be a part of our community!
Music is a wonderful thing to have in your life. We'll help you get started or get you learning new things again.
