Overview Of Our Award Winning Lesson Program

General Overview Of Our Program

  • Players Bench Music - December 2019 Lesson Specials!
  • There is a one time enrollment fee of $25.00 - however right now we have a discounted enrollment fee of $10.00 vs. $25.00.
  • With the enrollment - the student becomes a Player's Bench Member that receives discounts on almost everything within the store.    
  • Here is a brief overview of our lesson program. 
  • The student only has to commit to one month at a time - each week they would meet for the same 30 minute time slot. Our program runs on an auto payment system - with the option to put a credit or debit card on file.  If for some reason the student has to miss a lesson, we offer a “missed lesson coupon” one per month (we must have 24 hour notice). If they use the “missed lesson coupon” that is totally fine - if it's not that is fine too (they just can not be accumulated).  We charge for however many lessons there are on the designated day of the week - we do not charge for lesson closure days (you will be given all the date closures). The rate is $26.25 per half hour. We also offer discounts throughout the store to our active lesson students.  We hold two recitals are year for our active lesson students - at no extra cost to the student or guests they bring.
  • It is really easy to sign up - you can call us at (815)459-8614 or request lesson info right from the homepage of our website www.playersbenchmusic.com.

Dear Valued Students & Student Parents, 

  • We now have a physical “Makeup Coupon Card” this will only be provided at the front desk and must be handed in on the day of Makeup Lesson day to the front desk. Friendly Reminder: 
  • *We only allow one makeup lesson per month - they do not accumulate. We try to have the makeup scheduled within 4 weeks of missed lesson. For a private to semi private makeup lesson. 
  • *We do not provide a makeup lesson for SAME DAY CANCELLATIONS.   We serve over 150 students each week - in order to be equally fair to all students & teachers we have to be strict about our "Missed Lesson Policy" -  this policy it listed on "overview of the program" we hand out and sometimes email.  It is also repeated in the Lesson Policies & Procedures (we are completely transparent about how we handle this - we even have you initial and sign a paper saying that you understand). 
  • Music lessons are a commitment just like dance, sports, gymnastics, McHenry County College classes, and so on. Many of these you will find do not provide any makeup options - you simply just miss out if you do not attend. We have diligently been working on a new plan if your teacher happens to be absent - which will provide a qualified substitute for a seamless learning experience for the music lesson student. 

Thank you for letting us be a part of your musical journey! Sincerely,
Molly & Jason
