Private Lesson Program

While the formula for success in the development of young musicians contains many parts, the guidance that a private instructor provides is paramount. Private instructors not only give students weekly instruction on how to improve musicianship and technical ability, but they also serve as trusted guides through various activities such as audition preparation, searching for the right college, and instrument purchase. The Quad City Symphony Orchestra has played an active role in providing these services to our community for decades and the QCSO Private Lesson Program matches students of all ages and ability levels with highly qualified instructors for weekly lessons at locations around the Quad Cities.

Tuition
  • Lesson rates are set on a studio-by-studio basis. Please see the instructor list below for applicable lesson rates.
  • Students will register with a $25 registration fee which will be applied as a credit to the first billing cycle.
  • Students may discontinue lessons at any time; however, they are not guaranteed acceptance in the same studio if they return.
  • Students will be invoiced twice monthly on the 15th and the last day of the month for the periods as follows:
    • Invoice on the 15th – 26th of the previous month through the 10th of the current month
    • Invoice on the last day of the month – 11th of the month through the 25th of the current month
  • Invoice payments are to be paid directly to the QCSO Business Office within 10 days of the invoice date by:
    • Check (mail to 327 Brady Street, Davenport, IA 52801
    • Phone (call the business office at 563.424.7733)
    • Online (instructions sent with each invoice)
  • Overdue payments may result in a delay in future lessons.
Financial Aid

The QCSO Private Lesson Program is committed to preventing financial circumstances from becoming a barrier for any young musician’s participation in private study. Financial aid will be considered for any young musician who is accepted and submits the online financial aid application. Priority will be given to weekly lesson students.

Musicians with a demonstrated need for financial assistance may be eligible for a partial or full financial aid award on a case-by-case basis. Families can expect strict confidentiality regarding their application and award results. The QCSO Staff is responsible for determining the number and amounts of awards provided. Every effort will be made to meet the needs of members and their families, however, we cannot guarantee that each member who applies will receive an award.

To be eligible for financial aid, a student must be in good standing and register for an entire lesson cycle (weekly lessons).

QCSO PLP Financial Aid Application

  • Please fill out one form for each QCSO PLP student in your family.

 

Program Policies
  • Practicing in between lessons is of the utmost importance. Follow your instructor’s guidance on the frequency and length of practice sessions.
  • It is the responsibility of the student/parent to procure all required materials for private lesson instruction in a timely manner.
  • If an instructor must miss a lesson, and no substitute is available, the student will not be billed for that week’s lesson.
  • Students must give at least 24-hours notice when canceling a lesson. Failure to do so will result in the student being billed for that lesson. Exceptions in case of emergency will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
  • Students should arrive on time with all the necessary materials for their lesson. Failure to do so may result in lesson cancellation without a refund.
  • Students must treat lesson spaces with respect. Any behavior that puts the QCSO PLP’s community relationships at risk may result in removal from the program.
  • While learning something new may result in frustration, students should keep a positive attitude throughout their lesson to the best of their ability.
  • Disengaged behavior (i.e. routine unpreparedness, negative attitude, missing lessons) may result in removal from your assigned studio.

Teaching Philosophy: I have been fortunate to have the mentorship of Michael Hining, a highly skilled Suzuki method teacher in Oak Park.

I always try to be sensitive to each student’s personality and goals and try to determine the best way to respect and work with their learning preferences and abilities. I ask my students a lot of questions in their lessons, mostly about their body awareness in relation to the sound they are producing

As a result of this uniqueness of every student, lessons are custom- tailored to each student in an effort to establish their strengths, improve weaknesses, and encourage their own motivations in music. I strive to make lessons a positive and inclusive place, where students are excited to attend lessons and make progress each week.

Teaching Philosophy: I enjoy teaching students of all ages and my teaching philosophy is similar for all of them: I engage with the students wherever they are at in their musical development and work with them in a positive, supportive manner to help them strive for their musical goals. I can guarantee, having taught students who range in age from 10 to 95 years old over the last 30 years, that where students may be on their musical journeys can vary greatly, but a positive, supportive approach, which is an unchanging aspect of my teaching style, can effectively get them to where they are going. Students can expect to work on basic music theory and listening, the techniques to play their instruments and make good sounds, and ways to interact with their musical environment, be it in a band, orchestra, school audition or contest, or simply playing for their own enjoyment.
