- Teaching Methods
I use many different methods and publications to teach my students because no two students are just alike. For piano students, I use Bastien Piano Basics and Celebration Series the most, but not exclusively. For Woodwind students, I use what they are using in their schools plus supplemental methods and solos. For vocal students, it is definitely different for each and every one.
I choose the method based on each student’s age, musical experience, level and learning style.
There is no set time frame for lessons to begin or end. Should you choose to discontinue lessons at Kristi Balding’s Music Studio in the future, you are required to give two weeks prior paid notification to Kristi K. Balding.
The Materials Fee will not be refunded or prorated at any time.
I teach piano, voice and all of the woodwind instruments (flute, clarinet, oboe, saxophone, recorder & more!).
I am sorry, but I do not teach brass instruments (trumpet, trombone, tuba, etc.). Nor do I teach strings (violin, viola, cello, bass or guitar).
The following prices are for 30-minute, weekly private lessons. Most of my students take half-hour lessons, but some choose 45-minute or 60-minute lessons.
Private Vocal Instruction $110/monthly
Private Piano Instruction $100/monthly
Private Music Theory Instruction $100/monthly
Private Woodwind Lesson (Elementary Grades) $100/monthly
Private Woodwind Lesson (Secondary Grades & Adult) $110/monthly
If you need to reschedule a lesson, you are required to give a courtesy call to Miss Kristi at 248.622.1807 at least 24-hours in advance. A refund will not be given. Miss Kristi may schedule a make-up lesson prior to the absence, if the schedule allows.
Should an emergency occur, you may have an excused absence. The excused absence will not disqualify you from specific achievement awards, but a credit will not be given. Your lesson time is reserved exclusively for you, and you are billed for that reservation. When possible, Miss Kristi may schedule a make-up lesson.
