In-Home Music Lessons

After going online for a year during the height of the pandemic, Prospect Music Lessons is now back to doing In-Home Music Lessons. All of our teachers have been fully vaccinated and will continue to take all Covid-related safety precautions. For indoor lessons, we do require that both student and teacher wear a face mask (for this reason woodwinds and brass instruments are currently being offered Online only), and we prefer a well-ventilated room. We can also meet on stoops, in the park, rooftop, or outside wherever as long as the weather behaves!

Online Music Lessons

Prospect Music Lessons is continuing to offer Online Music Lessons! We’ve found Online Music Lessons to be wildly successful! For more than 90% of students, Online Lessons are just as good as In-Person. Plus, scheduling is much easier with no travel involved. The only cases where In-Home may be a better option are young students (8 and younger) and advanced students that are working on student/teacher duets (due to the time delay). Message Braden on our contact page to set up a free 15 minute sample lesson to meet him or one of our teachers and see if Online Lessons will work for you and/or your child!

Package Discount

Purchase 8 lessons at a time and get a $5 discount per lesson (per family). Packages expire 8 weeks after the first scheduled lesson (unless an expiration date is agreed upon at the time of purchase). To maintain a consistent weekly schedule for our teachers, students that purchase packages of 8 lessons will be given priority in scheduling.

Longer Lessons

Lessons longer than 1 hour will only cost an additional $20 per 15 minutes. Adding family members will also be charged the same. For in-home lessons, siblings must be taught at the same visit to receive this rate, however, due to no travel being involved with online lessons, siblings may schedule online lessons at different times. Also, students who wish to do online lessons twice a week can also take advantage of these rates!

Financial Aid

Everyone deserves the gift of music, so Prospect Music Lessons will be offering a limited number of discount lessons for those who are still experiencing financial hardship at this time. Feel free to contact us with your situation and we’ll let you know what we can do!

Payment

Lesson packages must be paid for at least 24 hours before the lesson unless another arrangement is agreed upon. We accept online payments through the Zelle network such as Chase Quick Pay, Venmo, and checks.

Rescheduling Policy

All reschedules must be done Online. Lessons canceled by the student with at least 24 hours notice can be rescheduled at a suitable time before the expiration date of the 8 lesson package. Lesson cancellations within less than 24 hour notice are not guaranteed a make-up lesson. Any make-up lessons not used after the expiration date are void. Lessons canceled by the teacher can be made up whenever is convenient for the student, even after the expiration date of the 8 lesson package if necessary.

Gift Certificates

We offer gift certificates! Purchase as many lessons as you’d like, and we’ll send you a certificate to give as a gift to whoever the lucky musician happens to be! Guitar Lessons for dad? Saxophone Lessons for your favorite jazz-fan? How about Bass Lessons for someone special’s birthday? All gift certificates expire in 6 months if not used right away, and 1 week per lesson is purchased after the first lesson is used.

Referrals

Current students who have already purchased at least one package of 8 lessons can get a free lesson by referring a new student to Prospect Music Lessons! The new student must purchase a regular-priced package of 8 lessons for the referring student to receive the free lesson.

Park Slope Parents Member Discount

Let us know if you’re a member of ParkSlopeParents.com and you’ll get a free lesson with your first purchase of a regular-priced package of 8 lessons. The free lesson must be used within a week of the package expiration date.
