All inquiries are welcome. Please contact our front desk at or call us at (858) 550 8100 with any questions.

After we receive your registration, we will connect you with a teacher who we think will be a good fit. Then you and the teacher will find a good time for the INITIAL lesson ($40). We only schedule and invoice for this first “getting to know you” lesson so that you can make sure the pairing is a good fit. Then if you decide to continue, we will start the monthly tuition.

Tuition is paid for on a monthly basis and is based on four lessons.

Individual Lessons are priced as follows:
$80 per hour ($320 per month)
$60 per 45 mins ($240 per month)
$40 per 30 mins ($160 per month)

Semi Private Lessons are priced as follows:
If two students wish to share a lesson this can be arranged and the cost is shared evenly.
Lessons will not be made up if a student cannot attend for any reason.

If three students wish to share a lesson this can be arranged for 1 hour sessions ONLY.
Tuition for a semi-private lesson is billed at the monthly tuition rate of $110 per student.

Financial Aid is available for all classes at Villa Musica. To apply for a needs-based scholarship please visit our Financial Aid page or drop by the front desk to pick up a Financial Aid form.
