Policies


Make the most of your lessons.

 

Listen to the recordings. Attend lessons consistently. 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Establish the habit of daily practice. Be curious!

Lesson Time: Students begin with weekly 30 minute lessons.

Attendance: When taking private lessons, it is important you choose a day and time that will work consistently for your schedule. 

Group Lessons: Students will enjoy getting to play theory games and practice performing together at quarterly group lessons. 

Skype: Lessons are valuable and available to students even when they are unable to attend in person.

Performance Opportunities: Performance practice, retirement home performances, and at least one formal recital scheduled annually. 

As a member of the Suzuki Association of the Americas and Music Teachers National Association, students have additional opportunities for masterclasses, institutes, adjudicated performance events as well as the Whitlock Theory Test, a comprehensive theory and ear training exam by grade level.

Materials: Yes, you need a piano at home.

  • You will have the best and most successful experience on an acoustic piano. I can help you find one!
  • Proper posture requires adjustment of the seat and feet. Adjustable benches and footstools can be purchased or created with carpet squares, phone books, etc.
  • Suzuki book and CD
  • Music Mind Games Puppy Packet

Parent Participation: Students are most successful with a parent involved in attending lessons, helping to establish daily practice, and providing positive support.

"An unlimited amount of ability can develop when parent and child are having fun together."  Shinichi Suzuki

How is Tuition determined?


Beginning instruction sets a path for progress. Do not be fooled - it is the most important!

"I can get piano lessons cheaper elsewhere." Unfortunately, "you get what you pay for" often rings true with this statement. 

I am a trained and experienced, full-time teacher. When I am not with a student, I am planning lessons and events, participating in music organizations, continuing my education and practicing my own skills. This is my passion and profession.

Tuition is divided into 10 equal payments. No matter the number of lessons you receive in a month, tuition is calculated on a yearly basis. Tuition will be pro-rated for students starting mid-year.

Annual Registration Fee: $25/student, $50/family

Typically, there are 32 school year lessons and 4 summer lessons. Breaks are included throughout the year. Tuition includes 36 individual lessons, 4 group classes, a play-in before every public performance, 2 recitals, and opportunities for adjudicated performance.

  • $165/monthly - 30 minute lessons

If a student plans to be away for most of the summer, there are flex weeks throughout the school year for scheduling the included summer lessons during the school year. Additional summer lessons are highly encouraged, though not required.
