How Much Does the Fall Semester Cost?
$60 non-refundable down payment to secure the slot for the semester. This goes toward the total semester tuition cost of $390 (roughly $30/lesson). Lesson slots are available first come/first serve. After school slots with Angie Mack Reilly are in high demand. Early registration is strongly encouraged!!
Three installments of $110 will be due on or before month one, two and three. (total of $330) You will be sent an email reminder and a link to pay when the installment is due. It is OK to pay ahead.
Only one discipline is allowed per 1/2 hour slot. So if you want to take voice and guitar, you will need to purchase 2 half hour slots.
What if I Didn't Register Before the Semester?
You can purchase individual lessons at $35/half hour during the time slots that are available.
I Can't Afford This!
No worries! Group lessons are available after school at a much lower cost and strongly encouraged for beginners. See HERE for group lesson options. Nobody should be turned away because they can't afford it. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any financial issues.
Where Will the Lessons Be Held?
Ozaukee Talent is located at 1111 Broad Street in Grafton on the 3rd floor of the North Shore Academy of the Arts building (attached north of the Grafton Library). Please enter through the Broad Street entrance. There is a sign on the far right door on how to open.
How Much Practice Time is Involved?
Students should optimally practice during several intervals of 15 minutes each throughout the week. Lack of practice affects the student’s ability to learn in a timely and efficient manner. All students are encouraged and taught to be able to practice on their own without parental help. The instructor will recommend materials to be purchased.
What if We Have to Miss a Lesson?
You can miss TWO lessons during the semester that can be made up during your normal time slot the weeks of December 11th and December 18th (FALL SEMESTER) or the weeks of April 16th and April 23rd (WINTER/SPRING SEMESTER). Please make every effort to make your weekly lesson to maximize learning. If you have a heavily scheduled family, please consider the time commitment needed to learn an instrument. Anything over 2 misses is not guaranteed to be made up, although I usually do try.
Will We Need To Purchase Instruments or Books?
Since every private lesson is tailored to the individual, materials will be different for each person. Your instructor will contact you via email to help determine what materials you will need.
