Regularly Scheduled Lessons

  • Weekly: ½-hr or 1-hr lesson in a specific time slot once per week (for beginners and school-age students) 
  • Bi-weekly: ​1-hour lesson in a specific time slot every other week (for advanced students who want regular lessons but have temporary school/family conflicts)
  • Monthly: 1-hour lesson approx. once a month (for advanced students, usually adults, who have to work around family or job committments)

Single Lessons

A single lesson consists of a 1 or 1½ -hour session designed to work specifically on a problem area or some specific technique (brushes, chart reading, etc.). This type of lesson is scheduled at a mutually convenient time and isideal for college students or adult drummers. The student can use existing materials they already have, or start fresh in a book recommended by Peggy. 


Lesson rates are $20 per 1/2-hr, or $40/hr. Weekly (4 or 5 lessons per month) and Bi-weekly (2 lessons per month) lessons are to be paid in full at beginning of the month unless other arrangements have been made.


Payment can be either cash, check, Paypal (online), or credit card (either in person or online using the Student Portal).

General Policy

  • Lessons missed outright will be charged

  • Lessons cancelled by the student with less than 24 hours notice will be charged (unless due to severe weather)

  • Lessons cancelled by the student at least 24 hours in advance will be rescheduled or credited 

  • If Peggy has to cancel, the lesson will either be rescheduled or credited


This policy is used by many types of instructional institutions (i.e., dance studios, martial arts schools, day-care, etc.) because expenses do not change if a student misses their lesson.


Musicians plan their schedule (including paid rehearsals or performances) around their student lessons; to disregard that is not only disrespectful to the teacher but also devalues music as a profession.
