child at piano classes

Joy Novak offers weekly piano lessons in 30-, 45- and 60-minute sessions. Your comprehensive musical education will include exposure to a wide range of musical styles as well as lessons in the fundamentals such as note reading, rhythm reading, technique, and music theory. Students will have access to regular performance opportunities including recitals, performance classes, music festivals, and competitions. Joy strongly encourages regular participation in the Oregon Music Teachers Association's Syllabus Evaluation Program — a formal, annual assessment of a student's music theory and performance skills.

Lessons are priced as follows:
Lesson Length (minutes) Cost Per Lesson
30 $28

You may opt for a monthly or quarterly payment plan. Students who pay for a full quarter of lessons receive three months of lessons at a discounted rate. Families with more than one student enrolled receive 15% off all additional students on the monthly payment plan.

An extra materials fee will be charged at the beginning of each quarter to cover the cost of books, sheet music, and other learning aids. Please see the charts below for a summary of fees.
