Rates & Policies


Teacher Leon’s Piano Policies for 2023



Here are updates to my piano lesson rates and policies in 2024.erial here!

Half-hour lesson: $90

45 Minute lesson: $120

Hour lesson (for a single student): $160



I invoice lessons at the start of each month for all upcoming lesson dates in the month. Most people seem to like Venmo but I'm flexible. 


If you can't make a lesson a given week I will be mean and invoice you all dates in the month anyway. But we will keep track and make sure to reschedule. 

If I miss a lesson, we can reschedule, refund or roll it to the next month. Up to you!


I used to have a more flexible policy but it quickly became a little chaotic. 

Students whose lessons are paid by the Federal Self-Determination Program are invoiced at month's end. SDP funds educational opportunities for children with developmental disabilities.
For more info:




I have Wednesdays and Thursdays set aside just for reschedules. There are other individual times that come up to reschedule on Sundays and some Fridays.

If I cancel a lesson, that lesson time is credited back to you or directly refunded.

I tour with my ensemble several times per year. I set up the tours so I only miss a week of lessons. I will attempt to reschedule this week with you, either before or after the tour.


My lesson policies related to invoicing are a little draconian, indeed. I give my all and more to my students, beyond what I wrote up here. Once the basic terms are set, I always go above and beyond. At a certain point I started to listen to some of my colleagues and develop policies to protect the trajectory of my teaching a bit more. 




I encourage everyone to participate in our recitals. We aim for three per year.

    • March 2024 - Spring Recital at CSM Theater TBA

    • June 2024 - Summer Recital at Woman's Club of Burlingame TBA

    • December 2024 - Winter Recital at Library of San Mateo 



  • January through June: students are expected to at all lessons or reschedule.

  • July is summer vacation/no expectation. Just let me know

  • September until Thanksgiving students are expected to at all lessons or reschedule.

  • December is winter vacation/no expectation. Just let me know.


Semester Students are families who prefer to pay by four month semester.

This comes at a 10% discount and some other perks, extra lessons etc.

However students are expected to attend or reschedule all lessons in a semester. 


  • January through April

  • May through August

  • September through December.


Practice is required for this to work. My job is to keep it lively and inspiring.
