Berkley McCourt’s Music – $25 per half hour
I am committed to guiding students in their pursuit of music at all levels and abilities. Music study is personal, and has unique meaning for every student. A good private instructor will recognize and identify the individual needs of each student, and design an instructional plan to address each of them. Private lessons are successful when they are meaningful, challenging, inspiring and fun.
