Music lessons for children can be organised through your child’s school, or at any of the music companies listed below. Musical instruments are duty free and consequently can often be found on-Island for a very good price. Also, don’t forget to check out EcayTrade to see what instruments are for sale. Instruments can sometimes also be rented from a local school/tutor. The cost of private music lessons seems to be very standard in all music schools: CI$40 for 30 minutes and CI$70 for an hour.
