Pricing for Piano, Guitar and Voice Lessons

Why We're Different

Piano Forte Music School offers a unique pricing structure for their music lessons, different from many other schools in the Bay Area. A flexible monthly tuition plan is offered instead of the usual semester tuition. This makes budgeting for music lessons easier. Since each student has different skills and learns at a different rate, all music lessons are customized to meet the needs of the individual student.
