In-Home Music Lessons

We are one of the only music lessons services in NYC that specifically does lessons in your home! Our teachers can travel to most areas of Brooklyn and Lower Manhattan. We still offer online sessions by request, for the free 15 min meet-and-greet, and when students are sick or out of town. We also occasionally offer lessons at a rehearsal studio in Gowanus, Brooklyn if that works best!

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 experiencing financial hardship at this time. Feel free to contact us with your situation and we’ll let you know what we can do!


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.

Cancellations Rescheduling

Students paying for lessons one at a time must give at least 24 hours notice for cancellations to have the money applied to a future lesson, otherwise the missed lesson must be paid for. All reschedules must be done Online. Lessons canceled by students who purchase the 8 lesson package 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. All rescheduled lessons are done Online.

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.


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
