Private Lessons


Private Lessons: We strongly encourage all SGSP students to enroll in private lessons, beginning during or immediately after the Explorers level classes. Private lessons have rolling admissions; students may begin at any point during the year by contacting one of the teachers listed below and arranging a mutually convenient time.


Student Assistants are upperclassmen or graduate students who offer 30-minute lessons for $60 per month ($15 per lesson). 60-minute lessons are also available ($30). These teachers have passed a barrier jury, have several years of teaching experience, and/or completed the methods or pedagogy teacher-training course.

***We have VERY LIMITED funds for financial aid. For students in need, we can offer lessons with an Apprentice or reduced-rate lessons with a Student Assistant ($10 instead of $15 per lesson). Aid is awarded based on need and merit, according to the financial aid form submitted on or before first day of class. Families may apply for ONE type of financial aid only (lesson assistance, loaner instrument, OR fee waiver).
