Book a Coach


packages and pricing

For the price of a private piano lesson, you’re investing into the most important skills you can ever learn! All of our coaching services are bought by the hour.

This year, we’re offering a variety of discounted coaching packages that can be divided however you wish. Want to do one session and then wait a month before you do your next one? That’s fine with us. We’ve named them based on how we suggest using coaching: one session a week. That rate typically allows a healthy coach-student relationship to flourish and creates a perfect environment for incremental improvement.

Our packages range from 4 hour bundles to 50 hours, and each package offers 10% off normal coaching rates (get an additional 10% off by joining Ethos Legends). 

We take the quality of our product seriously. Ethos coaches offer some of the very best feedback you can get! When you buy a session package, our coaches will:

1) Work outside of designated coaching time to create a personalized curriculum that fits your needs.

2) Look over cases, briefs, or presentations and provide critical feedback for improvement.

2) Offer call & text support at your tournaments as much as possible. Need help for parli prep? Our coaches will jump on a google doc and outline some strategies. Failed to break at nationals? Our coaches have faced failure before and will give you a call to help you process those emotions.

Either click on one of the packages below or fill out a contact form and allow us to match you with your best fit. We want you to break past all of your barriers. We’ll do everything it takes to make that happen.
