Locations and Rates
I teach out of my home in south Minneapolis on Sunday afternoons, Monday evenings, and Wednesday evenings. 30 minute lessons are $25, with price breaks for 45 and 60 minutes. Two siblings qualify for the 60 minute price break.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays I teach at a music studio, Children's Yamaha Music School, in Roseville. At the studio, 30 minute lessons are $30, with a yearly enrollment fee of $42. Registration and payments are through the studio
For students who live across the metro, or even out of state, I will skype lessons. While logistically challenging, skype is a great tool being utilized more and more by music teachers.

Krista Johnson, Music Teacher~ Payment Policy
Payments are to be made in advance; weekly on the day of the lesson is fine. Cash, Apple Pay, Venmo, Cash app, or Checks made out to Krista Johnson. Lessons are $25 for 30 minutes, $36 for 45 minutes, $46 for 60 minutes. Siblings taking 30 minutes each qualify for the hour rate.
I ask everyone to look ahead to the entire month and let me know of any conflicts BEFORE your first lesson of the month. If you have a lesson that needs to be canceled we will try to reschedule. If no mutual date can be arranged, we will skip that lesson and payment. All lessons committed to BEFORE your first lesson of the month must be paid for, regardless of attendance. Again, I will make every effort to find a make up time for anything missed.
There are two recitals each year, generally the first Sunday in October and the last Sunday in February. These are paid for as a lesson. (i.e. if there are 4 lesson days in October, adding in the recital makes it five lessons that need to be paid)
If I, the teacher, cancel lessons due to illness or other commitments you will not be charged for those days.
I may request that you purchase other materials at various times. I will provide you with information as to where you can purchase items. If need be, I can order for you and then you can reimburse me.
