2021-2022 Piano Lesson Information
Lessons begin September 6, Labor Day. You have all confirmed your lesson times, but please let me know by this Friday if require a tweak to your time. I am booked solid 3:30-8:00 so if you need to adjust your time, it will take some time to see if I can make the change.
NOTE: If you have a lesson on a school holiday you have the option of rescheduling at an earlier time in the day. Please give me a 48-hour notice.
Please remember that, unlike summer, during the school year the fee is $100 per month, regardless of the number of lessons that month, and is due by the first lesson of the month.
Over the last year, I have been previewing and testing a series of physical lesson material. While the vast majority of each student’s curriculum will still be digital studio-licensed music, this year I may introduce a physical book into your child’s curriculum. I will notify you of the price beforehand and give you the option of purchasing it yourself (all are available on Amazon) or reimbursing me the following month.
With how quickly things are changing, I will send out information about our studio safety protocols the weekend before lessons begin. PLEASE choose a virtual lesson if your child has symptoms of any illness. Even if masks are not required (and I really hope they aren’t), if you send your child into their lesson wearing their mask I will know that is your preference and I will wear one as well. I have been fully vaccinated.
Before lessons begin, please make sure you have made a practice schedule. I added the 5 days of practice requirement to registration this year because I want each student to get the most of this incredible opportunity you are giving them to become a life-long musician.
This is scheduled to be in-person and will be a little early this year – Saturday, November 27th at 6 pm. Please note this is the Saturday at the end of Thanksgiving Break. If you already know you will be out of town, please let me know so we don’t focus so heavily on a recital piece.
MINUTE-TO-WIN-IT PIANO OLYMPICS:
I’m excited to see students’ progress in their music theory (shhh, that’s the point of this year’s activity). Though we will track Olympic Records, this is a competition against the clock, not other students, and will have various levels to accommodate all students. All the information about the events will be on my website by late next week, but please start embracing your role as the Olympian’s “Trainer”. See your instructions here:
