Rates and Policies


$100 per hour lesson // $50 per 30-minute lesson

Rates are the same for in-person or Skype lessons.

Payment is due at the time of the lesson or before.

Please contact me to ask about rates for workshops, presentations, clinics, topical lectures, masterclasses, or double/group lessons (see bottom of FAQs page for more info on double and group lessons).

Payment Policy:

Some people prefer to pay at each lesson, others pay several lessons ahead so they don’t have to deal with money every time. I’m fine with either of these methods. I keep track of all payments and will remind you when you owe next if you choose to pay in advance.

I accept cash, checks, Venmo, or PayPal payments. Skype lessons must be paid for with Venmo or PayPal.

I currently do not accept credit cards.


You can see my availability and book a lesson easily online through my online booking system.

Cancellation Policy:

Cancellations are understandable from time to time. If you need to cancel please try to let me know by at least 48 hours before your lesson, and more time is appreciated if possible. I can often fill an empty spot if I know about it with enough notice. If you cancel within 48 hours before your lesson, then I ask that you be prepared to pay for it in full. This is standard policy for appointment based services and I appreciate your understanding.

Cancelations don't personally bother me at all as long as the policy is understood. Last minute cancelations due to situations that are truly out of one’s control, such as emergencies, will not be charged for. 

Reschedule Policy:

Reschedules can be tricky because I usually don’t have very much extra availability. I do my best to be as accommodating as possible. If you need to reschedule prior to 48 hours before your lesson, and there's a time that works, then I’m happy to do it. Please use my online booking system to reschedule a lesson.


I teach lessons in blocks back to back. Even though your lesson is scheduled for a 60 minute session, please expect and allow for a natural amount of transition time between lessons.
