For lessons I don't know. I know some folks pay a lot for lessons, especially from popular teachers, but I have never charged anything. It is safe to say you aren't going to get rich this way but you could make a little spending money. Private lessons ought to be worth a little more but if you try it as a group, if they each gave you five dollars, you'd come out pretty good. I think it depends a bit on the economic status of your customers. As long as every body is happy, it works.
Good advice Merigold! Thanks for the info!
