  • Do you offer private or group lessons?
    At various times throughout the school year we offer group lessons in guitar and ukulele. We offer private lessons in piano, flute, guitar, ukulele, violin, voice & cello. We also offer a youth choir program and music together classes for babies and toddlers with a parent or caregiver.
  • How much do lessons cost?
    Costs vary depending on the class or lesson type. Visit the individual pages about different lesson types for more information.
  • Do you offer a sibling discount?
    A 10% discount is applied for siblings. While one student pays full price, each subsequent sibling receives a 10% discount on monthly tuition. Similarly, if a student enrolls for more than one lesson or class, he or she will receive a 10% discount on each additional course.
  • When is payment due?
    Payment for private and group lessons is due on or before the first lesson of each month.
  • What forms of payment do you accept?
    We currently accept cash, check payable to Madison County Music Co., and Venmo (@MadisonCoMusicCo).
  • Will there be lessons on holidays?
    There will be no lessons on major holidays, such as New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. There will be no lessons on days when school is cancelled for inclimate weather. If there is a day off of school for teacher development, lessons will still be held.
  • Will there be lessons when the weather is bad?
    If the Winterset school district cancels or dismisses early due to bad weather, lessons for that day are also cancelled.
  • Do I have to pay for lesson books?
    In most cases, no, you can borrow lesson books from your teacher. However, in some cases lesson books will need to be purchased by the student/family. Your teacher will advise you in this case.
  • How often should I practice?
    Excellent question! The answer varies. Some people need more practice than others. However, it is best to practice at least 30 minutes per day. Regular practice in short intervals is better than practicing for a long period in one sitting. Regardless of how much practice is needed, your teacher will expect you to be prepared to demonstrate progress at each lesson.
  • Do you offer lessons online?
    In some cases and circumstances, yes. However, online lessons are not ideal for beginning students who usually need more hands-on instruction.
