Most teachers pass on the low cost of Piano Explorer as a material’s fee. At only $6 per student (group subscriptions) for a full year of great magazines, this is less than the cost of a meal at a fast food restaurant. As always we work to keep our costs and thus the price of the magazine as low as possible, especially in this difficult economy.
