I`ve just started as the flute instructor in an elementary school band class (there`s 17 of them and one of me), and now a girl at my high school has asked me to give her lessons. The band I work with is volenteer and we work out of a band book, but the other girl asked me how much I charged for a lesson. How much should I charge, and how do you go about teaching private lessons?

Hope someone knows,
Gumdrop

Hmmmm. It`s not unusual for it to be expensive, but since your new at it, don`t make it too expensive. Talk to your band director or someone

I`ve charged anywhere from $10-20 per lesson (an hour). I mean, guitar and drum lessons are way, way more expensive than that, so it`s a reasonable price.

10-20 is definately reasonable, especially for elementary school.

I pay $18 for each 30 minute flute lesson for my daughter. She`s not actually going into band until next year when she`ll be in 6th grade. The private teachers arranged through the school charge $15 per 30 minutes.

Thanks you guys! Oh yeah, the person I`d be giving private lessons to is a sophmore in high school.


Thanks for the advice,

You just started teaching? Are you a member of MENC- The national association for music education? They have a forum that Music Educators from all over the country help with any advice on teaching anything. Try

I`m new to this forum and really had no idea where to post this, but I am desperatly looking for a free down load of Canon D for Flute. Preferably in high register. I`ve gone everywhere, and please don`t suggest 8notes.com, because it just takes you to an external site that charges, and I have no credit card, (and limited funds in general for that matter) If anyone has this and can scan it and send me a copy, or if you can email me a copy you already have, or a website that will let me download it for free, or ANYTHING!!! I would appreciate it beyond words!!!!

Keep well,
Leslie Watson

I don`t know if it helps but I charge at least $15 for half an hour lessons down here in Miami...that is on the cheap side. Other certified teachers like myself charge any where from $35 to $45 for half an hour of lessons. Family rates are also another good thing to do.

A follow-up on my answer - my 2 girls (one plays flute & violin and the older one plays piano & clarinet) take music lessons from a studio in Denton, TX that pulls its teachers from either graduate students or students in their senior year at UNT (University of North Texas). The teacher that my kids have for flute & clarinet teaches the 3 O`Clock Lab Band & is a member of the 1 O`Clock Lab Band at UNT.

The owner of the studio received his Masters in Music Composition from UNT. Most, if not all, of his teachers have been or are affiliated with UNT. I`m sure that this is a contributing factor to the price. They used to take music at another studio & it was MUCH more expensive but not as good.

I think u should follow the market rate, no matter what yr music qualifications may be...Dun `spoil ` the market rate...Hiaek Hiaek! I think u can go for a 30 bucks for 45 mins. So that will make it $120 per month.
