Greetings Parents and Students of St John the Baptist School, Kenmore:

Lessons are $13.00* per half-hour and are paid in advance for the month, in cash or by check made payable to Rizzuto Music (lessons typically run 4/5 per month $52.00/$65.00). You must provide 24 hour notice for cancellations to receive credit for lesson, otherwise the lesson is forfeited. Vacation days and holidays will be observed and no lessons will be offered during those times. Half-days will be rescheduled with notification. Any lesson missed by the student due to unforeseen circumstance/illness will be credited.

Information for instrument method books and lesson materials will be provided upon consolation after the first lesson. If needed I can purchase the materials and be reimbursed, or you may purchase from a vendor of your choosing. It is important that students have an instrument to practice at home (guitars, keyboards, drums, etc. are not provided by Mr. Rizzuto or St. John’s).

Private instruction in music affords the student a unique opportunity to learn the fundamentals of reading musical notation and preparation for musical performance in a structured one-on-one format. I have taught private lessons for over 15 years and I have experience teaching beginner to advanced levels. I take great pride in my work as a music educator, and private lessons can be an enriching experience for both the student and teacher.

The first lesson(s) will be an assessment of the student’s musical aptitude. Subsequent lessons will incorporate a new performance skill and musical concept to be practiced at home. Please note that lessons are not meant for practice as the lesson is designed to teach new concepts and strengthen the student’s musical skills, which will culminate in an end of year performance recital.

If you have any further questions regarding lessons or would like to schedule a lesson block – please email lrizzuto@stjohnskenmore.com or lawrencejrizzuto@gmail.com.

Thank you,

Mr. Lawrence Rizzuto
