Private Lessons

Weekly private lessons are the first step in developing the musical skills necessary for instrumental and ensemble music making and are at the heart of Reverb Music Center’s music program. All of our teachers are dedicated to helping you achieve your musical goals as well as making your lessons as relaxed, fun, and enjoyable as possible!

Private lessons are ongoing and can be started at any time. Please call 617.393.3863 to set up your lessons at which time we’ll match you with the most appropriate teacher based on your interests, ability, and scheduling needs.

Private Lessons at Reverb take place Monday through Friday, afternoons and evenings, and Saturdays (dependent upon instructor). Please contact us for complete times and listings.

Lessons may be purchased using one of the following plans (prices shown per lesson):

Lesson Length One Month Two Months Three Months
30 min $35 $32.50 $30

All Reverb Music Center Policies are listed below. Before beginning your private instruction, you will be required to read and sign our New Student Registration and Policy Form (click to download). To expedite the process, please download and complete prior to your first lesson.


Payments must be made in full on or before your first scheduled lesson - failure to do so may result in a loss of your weekly scheduled time slot and termination of future lessons. We currently accept cash or checks (online payment options coming soon). Please make checks payable to Reve Music Center. You can bring payment to your first lesson or mail it to the address at the left of this form. If mailed, payments must be received within one week of your first scheduled lesson or your time slot will be lost and lessons will not begin until payment is made in full.


Students are expected to attend their lessons and/or ensembles on a weekly basis and may not reschedule their lesson once a day and time has been chosen and assigned.

Reve Music Center requires 24 hours notice in order to cancel a lesson. One cancellation is allowed for students who register for 2 or 3 month lesson plans - monthly plans do not allow cancellations. A cancelled lesson must be made up before lesson plan expires and will become void after expiration.

If your teacher must cancel a lesson for any reason, you will be notified as soon as possible and the missed lesson will be made up before the end of your lesson plan period.

Any lesson(s) and/or ensembles missed due to inclement weather will be made up. If Reverb Music Center closes due to inclement weather, an announcement will be made on the lesson center’s voice mail - please call 617.393.3863. Reve does not follow public/private school closings and does not call individual students if closing due to snow.

Withdrawal / Tuition Refunds

*for 2 and 3 month lesson plans only

Notification must be given in writing by a parent or guardian for any student withdrawing from their lesson plan. If applicable, refunds will be given based on when the written notice is received.

Late Policy

If a student is late for his/her lesson time, the teacher is required to wait for half of the scheduled lesson time after which the student will be considered absent - missed time will not be made up. Any lesson time missed due to a teacher running late will be made up
