I was there enquiring about piano and violin classes for my children. Yamaha offers both individual and group classes for both instruments. Group classes for piano (6 to 8 years old) are mainly in the weekends. Beginner group class costs $385.20 for 11 lessons (1 term) of 1 hour session. For the first term, one parent needs to sit in the lesson with the child. Group size is maximum of 8 students per class. If you opt for individual piano lessons, you can choose your preferred session from a list of available time slots and the fee is $176.55 per month for a weekly 45-minute session. At the time of my enquiry, only individual violin lesson is available due to a shortage of teachers. Beginner individual violin lesson costs $203 per month for 45-minute session.
Other upfront payment includes a registration fee of $32.10 and a refundable deposit of $150. Material cost of $37.14 is also required to buy the music book. Upon signing up, you need to commit for a minimum of 2 months. If you missed a class, you won’t be able to attend a replacement class unless the class was cancelled by the teacher. Trial classes are not available.
The customer service lady was patient and helpful in helping me with my enquiry. Do enquire early as the popular time slots tend to run out quickly.
