FAQs About Private Lessons

How much are lessons?
Private lessons are $40/half hour and are scheduled in 30-minute increments. Upon registration, there is an administrative fee of $15/student. This fee is waived if the student was enrolled in lessons within the previous 60 days.

How frequently do lessons occur?
All lessons are weekly on the same day/time.

How does billing work?
You will be billed automatically on the first of the month for the number of lessons that will occur in that month. Some holidays are excluded from billing. See the list of holidays on the bottom of this page.

What happens if I need to miss a lesson?
Regular attendance is very important to make sure that the student is progressing. To cancel a lesson, contact Elefante Music directly by calling 908-464-5928 or emailing We do not give refunds for cancelled lessons unless the lesson is cancelled by the teacher and a substitute teacher is not available.

Are make-up lessons possible?
A cancelled lesson may be eligible for a make-up if 24 hours notice is given and there is availability on the teacher’s schedule. The student must also be currently taking weekly lessons. Make-up lessons must be taken with the original teacher.

Which teacher will I be assigned when I sign up?
If you have a teacher preference (see a link to their profiles below), let us know! We will try to get you on their schedule. If your first preference doesn’t have availability, we will help assign a teacher that we believe can help meet the student’s needs.
