To all students, parents and/or guardians:

Lesson fees will be going up to $25 per lesson, as of January 1st, 2023.

We have not had an increase in our fees since 2015, while other private institutions have increased their rates annually.

We here at VHMC feel this is a reasonable increase and hope that everybody agrees and understands.

All lesson days and times will remain the same.

All rules and regulations will remain the same.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

705-328-3695 or

Yours musically,
Gerald Van Halteren.
