Chamber Music Fees
Chamber music fees are based on the hourly fee and divided by the number of students — i.e. a string quartet would divide the hourly rate by four, and a duet by two.
Ensemble and Suzuki Group Classes
Suzuki group classes are intended as a complement to private instruction- not as a substitute for regular weekly private lessons. Students who wish to enroll in Suzuki group classes must also be taking private lessons. Students who wish to enroll in Adult Classes, or KYSO may do so without registering for private lessons.
