About the Lessons

Learning and fun through hands-on activities



Students of Barwell Flute and Piano Studio receive a well-rounded music education.  We learn by playing our instrument, listening to others, and learning about music theory through various activities, including games.  Students also learn about the history of music and compose their own pieces.  We have a lot of fun in lessons!

Let's set up a time to meet prior to your first lesson!



Tuition

Tuition for the year is payable in monthly installments.  There will be 35 weeks of lessons and group classes this school year beginning August 14, 2017.  For students joining the studio mid-year, tuition will be pro-rated for their first month.  

Because the studio operates on a yearly schedule, it is expected that students will commit to join the studio for the duration of the year.  Summer lessons are encouraged and are billed separately.


Lesson Locations

Home Studio 
Lessons take place at my home in the Arlington area of Jacksonville, Florida. I have a separate building that serves as my music studio. Parents are welcome to sit in the waiting area of my studio during their child's lesson as long as they do not disrupt the lesson in progress.

University Boulevard Nazarene Church 
I teach two days at the DuFresne School of Music for students who attend the school or church or for those who live closer to the school than they do to my home studio.  Space and time is limited for this location. For more information about this facility, visit www.UBNC.org/SchoolofMusic.


Regarding Practicing

At lessons, I, as the teacher, will encourage and expect students to spend time practicing at home. However, as I will only see the student once a week, it is important for the parents to encourage and guide the students in their practice time at home. It helps to schedule a daily practice time into the student's routine.
