Prime School of Music strives to offer the highest level of instruction to students of all ages and musical foundation levels.With a new facility, and some of the most accomplished teachers in the area, we are uniquely able to provide a full range of private lessons to help each student achieve their goals.
Private Music Lessons
Through our experience the best way to learn is through hands on one-on-one instruction with a qualified instructor, which is why we exclusively offer private lessons for the following instruments and specializations:
|Beginner||$27 - $30 for a half hour lesson|
|Intermediate||$38 - $40 for a 45 minute lesson|
|Advanced||$48 - $50 for a one hour lesson|
Note:Beginner rates only apply to new or inexperienced students.Prices are all inclusive, we do not charge additional GST.Online lessons are also available.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the best way to contact you if I have questions?
Because our hours of operation fluctuate day to day and teachers may be in class we ask that you please contact the school through e-mail.
How do I register and arrange a tour of your facility?
Registration and tours are by appointment only, please ensure that you have read and agree with the school policies and e-mail us for availability.
Does your school offer group lessons?
At this time we only offer individual one-on-one private instruction, no group lessons.
At what age should my child start taking music lessons?
While every student is different we normally recommend that they do not start their musical training until after they have reached 4 years of age.
The goal of these policies is to help ensure that all students, parents, and teachers are treated fairly so that everyone has an equal opportunity to reach their personal goals without being adversely affected by the actions of others. At Prime School of Music we constantly strive to exceed your expectations and these policies will help to ensure that the quality of service you expect stays at the highest level.

Cheques that are returned NSF will be subject to a $25.00 NSF fee.
Students are responsible for purchasing any materials they may need; books and other personal items will not be provided by the school.

Make up Lessons / Lesson Cancellation Policy
(MAX 2 per semester - NO EXCEPTIONS)
September to January semester (2 times)
February to June semester (2 times)
If a lesson is cancelled by your teacher, the lesson will be rescheduled for a different time.
If a lesson is cancelled by student, there will be NO REFUND and a makeup lesson will only be arranged if sufficient notice (24 hour minimum) is provided prior to the lesson time.
Each student is limited to TWO (2) make up lessons per semester. After this point if you miss a lesson, no matter the amount of notice, no makeup lesson will be provided.
If a student cancels a make-up lesson, another make-up lesson will NOT be provided.
If you feel under the weather, or for any reason cannot provide the required notice, you can switch to an online lesson at the regularly scheduled time. Even if you do not have an instrument teachers can provide instruction on music theory, musicianship, ear-training, rhythm, etc. This way students still have the ability to learn and not miss out on a lesson.
Substitute TeachersMuch like the public school system, on rare occurrences there may be a situation in which a student’s assigned teacher is not available for a specific lesson. In order to keep your schedule on track the school will reserve the right to substitute a qualified teacher for a specific lesson without advanced notice. Every attempt will be made to ensure this does not happen on a frequent basis as we understand that the relationship between the student and their assigned teacher is a very important one.
Discontinuation of LessonsIf you decide to discontinue your lessons for any reason you must provide the school with at least one (1) month notice of your termination date. Any outstanding postdated cheques or prepaid lesson fees will be refunded after your final lesson has completed. As such, there is no need to be concerned regarding pre-payment made for the registration year.
Health and Safety Policy
While masks are no longer mandatory it is highly recommended that any attendees who are feeling under the weather continue to wear one. Our lessons require close interaction between students and teachers and any added level of protection benefits everyone involved. If you are a student and prefer that your teacher wear a mask, please let them know at the beginning of your lesson.
If you are showing any signs of sickness, you will be asked to wear a mask as a precaution for everyone's protection.
If students are dropped off by a parent or guardian, we ask that they come to the school lobby to pick them up in person as we do not want students to leave the building alone. We ask that all parents/guardians comply with this policy to ensure the safety of everyone attending the school, especially children.
