I love working with children, and with adult students at different ages and levels. I am patient, kind and encouraging because I believe that students learn best in a calm and friendly environment.
Each piano lesson is individually designed according to the student's goals, needs, and level. I teach Music Theory, Sight Reading, Piano Performance, Piano Technique, all music fundamentals. We play music of various musical styles according the student's preferences, and needs - Classical, Blues, Pop, Jazz, etc.
My students have the opportunity to perform in Piano Recitals twice a year. My adult students are not required to perform unless they choose to do so.
30 min. Lesson- $30. Recommended for levels Beginner to Late Elementary
45 min. Lesson- $42. Recommended for levels Intermediate and Advanced
Recitals - $17- for each performing student. Required for all children. Our recitals are held twice a year.
Copies- $.15 / page
The tuition for the whole month is due on the first lesson of the month*. If for any reason you have to reschedule this lesson you still need to mail your payment so it can be received in time. You can pay by a personal check, or in cash. If a lesson is missed, it may be rescheduled.
Prices and fees are subject to change at any time. However, the instructor will make every effort to give all current students a 30 days notice.
*If your payment is past due for more than 7 calendar days, a late fee of $5 will be charged. If your payment is past due for 14 calendar days student's lessons will be discontinued until the monthly tuition has been paid in full.
Lessons are scheduled year round except on major holidays. If necessary a lesson may be rescheduled. The instructor must be made aware of and confirm lesson rescheduling at least 24 hours prior to appointment times, except in the cases of sudden illness, in which cases instructor must be made aware of and confirm rescheduling at least two hours prior to appointment times.
Failure to give notice and receive confirmation of rescheduling within these time frames will result in client’s forfeiture of payments for cancelled lessons. Frequent rescheduling of any kind may result in student’s removal from instructor’s roster and loss of student benefits, including but not limited to those outlined on instructor’s Website.
I like to use Alfred's Basic Course, but I am flexible and can use other teaching methods depending on the students needs and goals. For students that are 5-6 years old I like to use Alfreds's Prep Course, for those that are 7-9 years old I use Alfred's Basic Course, or Alfred's Basic piano course for the Later Beginner. We also supplement with other piano literature so my students can play their favorite musical pieces, and so that they can develop proper and adequate piano hand technique.
Please contact me to determine the correct level for each student.
Students need to have :
Theory Book, Lesson Book, Technic Book, and Solo or Recital Book. Each book is about $6 - 8 and may be bought at our Amazon Store.
Students also need to have an Assignment Book - a notebook of your choice where I can write down the student's assignments for the following week.
As the student progresses, you may be asked to purchase other materials, such as a metronome, and additional musical literature.
