Thank you so much for your interest in music lessons with Bornstringed Studio. We are not currently accepting new students. Please check back again in August for information on getting plugged in when we start teaching again in September.

Some basic lesson information is listed below. Please read my studio policies for all the details and don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.


Sarah is a nerdy 30-something with 2 music degrees and tons of teaching experience. She teaches piano, guitar, violin, and ukulele.

Cece is a high school senior and incredibly gifted multi-instrumentalist. She'll be teaching beginning piano lessons this year.


A half hour lesson with Sarah is $30. Most of Sarah's lessons are 30 minutes. Some of her students are ready for longer lessons, which Sarah does offer. If you think your student might be ready for a 45 minute lesson, please let Sarah know! Typically these are students who have studied their instrument for at least 3 years and/or who are in 6th grade or older.

A half hour lesson with Cece is $22.

For all students, there will also be a one time $25 resource fee to help pay for books and other materials your student will need throughout the year. This fee will be billed at the first lesson.

Please plan on paying for lessons a month at a time. Cash or checks made out to "Sarah Huber" are welcome. You can also use @bornstringed to pay on Venmo.


All students need an instrument for their lessons and to practice with at home. Students will bring their guitars, violins, and ukuleles with them for their lessons as well as the music they're working on. Piano students just need to bring their music with them for their lessons, but should have an instrument at home to practice on.

Students (and their parents) should plan on weekly lessons and regular practice at home. We typically encourage students to practice 5 days a week for 10-15 minutes. But you know what? 5 minutes is better than 0 minutes. What matters is that they practice and that they practice regularly. Make it a part of the weekly schedule. It's that important and you'll get the most out of your time and monetary investment if you plan on regular practice.
