"Don't only practice your art, but force your way into its secrets; art deserves that, for it and knowledge can raise man to the Divine." - Ludwig van Beethoven
The goal of our private music program at NCCS is to enable students to continue growing in their craft, as well as in their love for music, their appreciation of performance, and their authenticity in worshiping God through their musical gifts. Nothing taps into the heart of the Creator quite like music!
For the convenience of our families and to ensure continuity and growth in our Arts programs, North Cobb Christian School offers a variety of private music lesson opportunities. These lessons are open both to our NCCS community and also to the public, as space allows.
The lesson program is designed to accelerate a young student’s mastery in his/her chosen discipline, as well as to enable advanced students to be ready to pursue a college curriculum. As such, families are expected to enter into the program with the good-faith intention of continuing throughout the school year – and into the summer if possible. Please discuss this commitment within your family prior to registration!
My son and daughter began piano lessons with Mr. Brink their first year as students at NCCS. In just a few short weeks, they were playing two-handed pieces, and within three months, they performed at their first recital. They have discovered a love of music that they hadn't known before. We are so very grateful for Mr. Brink and the music program at NCCS!
Music Lesson Frequency & Billing Information
Each lesson will be taught weekly and is 30 minutes in length, although advanced students may contract to take a 45-minute or one-hour lesson. Due to school holidays, teacher in-service days, inclement weather, and other uncontrollable variables, it is NOT POSSIBLE to guarantee that a set number of lessons will be held each month. For this reason, the program is set up around the total number of lessons each student will receive instead of a set number each month.
With that explanation given and based on our experience, each music student will be able to receive a total of 24 lessons during the contract period of September – April. The cost of each private music lesson is $25.00 per 30-minute session. That means a total cost of $600 from September 1 through April 30 ($25.00 per lesson X 24 lessons = $600), resulting in a monthly billable rate of $75.00 per month, billed in advance on the first day of each month to your FACTS account, September through April.
The month of May will be used for any make-up lessons that were not held earlier in the school year; however, families will not receive a bill for May since the financial obligation for the lesson program will be met once the April bill is paid. Any lessons taken in May, which are not make-up lessons from excused absences, will be billed at the individual lesson rate of $25.00 per 30-minute session. Bills for these lessons will be charged to your FACTS account during the first week of June.
Music lessons will begin the week school starts. In some cases for lower school students, it may be necessary to determine the daily classroom schedule of the teacher at the start of the school year before a lesson time can be determined. Families will be notified as to when their student(s) will begin lessons. All lessons taken during August will be billed to your FACTS account at the end of the month at the rate of $25.00 for each 30-minute lesson.
