Lessons are billed monthly and available in the following plans with recurringLIVE lessons being held weekly on most weeks; this translates to 44 lessons per year in accordance with the studio calendar. If there is room in schedule, you may also purchase extra lessons. ⭐️What’s included?
Studio expenses including online ones such as educational software subscriptions (*Please note that students may need to purchase their own software subscriptions and books.)
Professional member dues for music teachers associations and organizations such as the Music Teachers National Association, California Association of Professional Teachers, and the Music Teachers’ Association of California
Education – As a teacher I must continue to broaden my knowledge and expertise in my subject areas. I also attend conferences and undergo annual certification.
Business expenses such as credit/debit and PayPal payment processing as well as business licenses and self-employment tax.
Weekly student assessments that occur in between scheduled lessons. ⭐️ Students on the Basic plan and higher are allowed to send up to 15 minutes of audio and video recordings for a professional written evaluation each week.
At Mage Music, students have the option to send videos instead of meeting live with their teacher, or they may opt to have me review their videos during our Zoom sessions so that they can receive instant feedback.
From Tonara (the platform used for music lessons communications at Mage Music):
Ongoing Support packages give you the option to learn from a teacher without holding a live lesson. Support can happen via chat messaging in Tonara Connect or Tonara Studio, where you can receive advice via audio and video recordings and text messages. Through Tonara Studio, you can also receive detailed assignments and track your practice sessions.
A great fit for:
If you would like individualized feedback but do not have time to take live lessons at a certain time. Please note: you would still need time to practice of course!
If you are on the waiting list and would like some coaching while waiting for a live spot in the schedule.
If you have an internet connection that is not strong enough for live lessons.
If you prefer to perform without the teacher watching live.
The video subscription allows students to access instructional videos as taught by Mage, NCTM. These videos cover various method books, repertoire sheet music, and techniques. Please note that if you would like access to content that covers published material from books and sheet music that you will need to have a licensed copy of the material.
✅ Access to video library created by Mage, Nationally Certified Teacher of Music
✅ Other plans are available that combine the video subscription with group or private lessons held monthly–please inquire.
❌ This subscription does NOT include feedback from the teacher but instead gives you view-only access to premium videos.
