Miscellaneous Info

Lesson pricing (current Fall 2003).  Lesson pricing results for "nominal" rates from various metropolitan areas across US, from an internet discussion group thread discussing organ lesson pricing.

By the month:   $70 nominal per month with one half hour lesson each week (this equals 4 to sometimes 5 lessons per month).  This rate works out to be $17.50 per half hour lesson (an equivalent rate of $35 per hour) for usually 4 lessons per month.  The range for the same services varied from up to $100 per month and down to $60 per month.

By the lesson:  $25 per hour lesson nominal in several areas.  The range for same services also varied from $20 per half hour to $35 for the full hour.
