Tuition Policies:


Our attendance policy is in place to diminish the heavy strain that multiple misses can put on an instructor’s already busy schedule. We also believe that consistent lessons helps build discipline, confidence, progress and momentum. We understand that unexpected events do occur, and we do our best to work with you as much as our schedules will allow.

An excused lesson may be rescheduled at the teacher’s discretion. To be eligible for an excused lesson, the student must contact the teacher at least 48 hours in advance. Students are guaranteed only one make-up per semester due to an excused absence. All excused lessons, as defined above, must be made up within the dates of the current quarter.

If a teacher needs to cancel a lesson, he or she will offer an alternative time to reschedule, prior to the end of the current quarter.

Tuition Payment

To secure your reserved lesson time, tuition is due on the first day of classes.

All other students meeting at my home studio can pay cash, chase quick pay, venmo, apple pay, or check made out to Martin Metzger.

In order to allow for flexibility, adult students are not required to commit to our quarter system. Adult students will be charged by the month, at the end of each month, for all lessons taken.

Our Tuition per lesson for the 2022/23 year comes to $70 for 30 minute lesson, $85 for 45 minute lessons, $100 for a 60 minute lessons

We are truly loving working with Martin Metzger. Our 12-year old son looks forward to his lessons and is excited to play the music he and Martin choose together. Martin strongly believes in allowing kids to follow their interests, and has the talent, interest, and patience to help them do so in a wide range of genres. Martin is knowledgeable and dedicated both as a musician and as an educator. We travel a bit of a distance for lessons and are convinced it's well worth our time. We recommend him highly to anyone at any age looking for a great guitar instructor." Tammy R.
I love learning guitar from Marty! He's been my guitar teacher for four years now and I'm still happy with him. Marty has adapted his lesson style as I learn and got older, so the lesson is always interesting with new things to learn. We've also developed a bunch of inside jokes. Marty is a nice guy who makes learning guitar about enjoying music and teaching yourself discipline to be able to learn guitar. You will learn something new every lesson! I wouldn't pick any teacher over him!! Allison G.
