For discounted studio rates, please see information in my photos. As a beginner I will work with you on instrument assembly and care, acquiring good practice habits, and learning the basics. I am also comfortable working with you to buy or rent an instrument if you do not already own one. If you've been playing for a while I will work with you on assigned ensemble music, audition repertoire, and anything else you'd like!
