Here’s how the tuition structure at DGS works.


Students can pay one flat tuition per TERM   or one flat tuition every Month – same tuition for both 4 week or 5 week months.   The Term package is about 10 % lower than Monthly and is more convenient for both of us (Set it and forget it).  Lessons are typically once a week but some students enjoy 2 or even 3 a week- hey, I know hockey kids who attend hockey practice 3 times a week for 2 hours each.   Tuition on this page assumes one 45 minute lesson per week.   Talk to me if you want more.

Families with 2 registered students receive a 15% discount on total tuition.  3 or more students from one family receive a 20% discount on total tuition.

Students attending post-secondary education receive a 15% discount (with valid student ID).



Term 1: September – December

Term 2: January – April

Term 3: May – June

Term 4: July – August (Talk to me and we’ll work it out!)

Don’t Strum Another Song Until You’ve Read This GUIDE!

“I think it’s a fairly well-accepted urban legend that strumming will just occur naturally once a guitarist learns a few chords…and while this may be true for some, your teaching is precisely what the rest of us need in order to progress”.
