Program Overview

Our Private Lesson Program is currently the only one like it in Snoqualmie Valley. Our students come to our instructors to study a huge range of instruments from drums to guitar to ukulele to piano to electric and upright bass to voice and many more. In addition to providing quality instruction on technique and basics, our students learn various genres of music, ranging from Classical, Rock, Jazz and Pop. Our instructors help students prepare for competitions, college auditions, talent shows, 2nd Saturday Open Mic Nights and our end of session performances. By providing these diverse performance opportunities, our students build confidence and gain valuable life experience through the art of performance.

Private lesson pRICING & POLICIES

Private lessons at Big Star Studios are billed on the 1st of the month. You pay in advance for all private lessons. There are some months where there will be a 5th lesson, and that will be figured into your monthly tuition. Pricing is effective as of September 1, 2019.

Lesson length | Monthly tuition:

  • 30 Minutes | $144 for 4 lessons or $180 for 5 lessons
  • 45 Minutes | $216 for 4 lessons or $270 for 5 lessons
  • 60 Minutes | $288 for 4 lessons or $360 for 5 lessons 


Private lessons continue even when schools are on break, and over the summer. Unless the teacher has told you they will not run, please assume they are running every week. If you need to cancel a lesson, please provide 48 hour written notice to, and we can credit your account toward the next month’s tuition. If your student is a “no-show” or provides less than 48 hour notice, you will be billed for the lesson.  All of our teachers are busy working artists, who count on consistent income. We honor our wonderful teachers, and we pay them if you are a “no-show”, therefore you will be billed. If the teacher cancels the lesson your account will be credited for that canceled lesson. If the teacher has a wait list, and your student misses 50% of their lessons during an 8 week period, you run the risk of losing your spot. There is no “Unlimited” pricing for private lessons.

If at any time, you would like to stop the lessons, please let us know in writing by the 15th of the month, and we will stop the lessons and billing the following month.
