    Dear Parents,

     

    Excellence in music is a product of hard work and a strong foundation of fundamentals. To facilitate excellence, the Hopkinton Music Association, in conjunction with the Hopkinton Music Department, is once again sponsoring an after school private lesson program.  Please read this letter carefully and return the attached form to the Hopkinton Music Association.

     

    Professional music teachers and performers offer lessons for all band instruments, strings, and voice.  Lessons are available at a rate of $25.00 per half-hour lesson.  Lessons are discounted to $23.00 per half hour if lessons are paid in full and in advance.  Students may elect 45 minute and hour lessons at the rate of $37.50 and $50.00 respectively.

     

    Lesson Information and Policies:
