How much can I charge for violin lessons in NYC?

I have B.A. in music and have studied violin for 20+ years. I play professionally in a chamber music group, orchestras, and occasional recording studio work.
I am considering teaching private violin lessons in the NYC area, and I am wondering how much I can charge. I'm only really interested (qualified) to teach beginner and intermediate students.
I'd like to take a few students at first to test the waters, but if I like it I would consider pursuing it further. I haven't taught private lessons before, but I have experience working with elementary and middle school aged children.
Most likely I would ask students to travel to my studio in Brooklyn, but should I consider traveling to my students? Can I charge more if I do that?
What would be reasonable to charge for 30 minute or 60 minute private lessons in NYC? Should I consider teaching a class with multiple students and is pricing typically different for that?
