Do you find your lessons rate fair? Expensive? Inexpensive? What exactly do you get for your money: one lesson at a time? No, much more. There are at least 25 ways (we combined some items, either way, it would be too long) where your money goes when taking music lessons. And you even help this world to get a little better through our charity programs.
