Default Re: Skype lesson fees

$50 Canadian for an hour seems rather low, but I would guess it's market dependent. In the Dallas/Fort Worth area, I am not aware of any music instructor (not specifically bagpipes mind you) charging less than $30 USD per half hour or $50 USD per hour for in-person lessons, and many (including my lessons) are more than that.

That said, as a full-time music teacher myself, even if the online market has a "standard" fee, I'm not going to charge less for a Skype lesson than an in-person lesson, or I would have to prioritize my in-person lessons over my Skype/online lessons, which ultimately I feel is a disservice to my online students.
