 Fee Structure

We have a range of fees to suite all …whether it is just for fun or on a more serious level of instruction.

We pride ourselves on Putting the Joy of Music in your life! 

Our serious students do it because they love it; THAT IS WHY THEY RECEIVE NUMEROUS AWARDSboth provincially and nationally.
Most of our students who take exams receive First Class Honours or First Class Honours with distinction.  Please scan our  Awards to see PJ Music’s students accomplishments!

Our rates are dependent on the qualifications of our teachers.  (Ranging from student Teachers to highly qualified Local, National and International Award winning Teachers. These range from $30, $40, $50, $60, $70 to $80 per hour. So if you choose a student teacher the fee would be $60 per month for 4 half hour lessons……the fee increases proportionately.($80 per hour teacher = $160 per month for 4 half hour lessons).

The student Teachers are all working under the tutelage of a senior teacher.  3/4 hour and one hour lesson lessons increase proportionately.

For semi-private lessons the fee is increased by $10 per hour.

Fees are divided as follows:

$60.00 Student Teachers
$80-$90.00 Qualified Student Teachers, (or those working towards qualifications)
$100, $120 to $140.00 Qualified Instructors with established, award winning students.

Please contact us with any questions or to see if we have an available instructor in your area of interest.
