A Plus Piano Studio

I hope to create an enjoyable experience for you and your kids and to foster a lifelong love of Music.



Statement of Policies and Procedures

INSTRUCTION ♫ Piano lessons include instruction in reading music, technique, interpretation, theory, sight-reading, and ear training. It is my goal to fully develop the students musical potential. A minimum of two recitals will be scheduled in a school year. Students participation in concerts, recitals, competitions and other events is encouraged but not required.
PRACTICE ♫ Student should be punctual and prepared for each lesson. A minimum of a half hour of daily practice is recommended, with one to two hours for advanced students. The parent should provide a piano in good condition, a bench or chair at correct height for student. Location of the piano should allow for uninterrupted practice and provide adequate lighting.
ATTENDANCE ♫ Due to my heavy schedule please make every effort to attend all lessons at the assigned time. There will be no credit or refunds for the lessons canceled by the students on the same day of the lesson. A credit lesson is possible only once in 2 months and can be given in such serious cases as illness, emergency or if notification has been given 24 hours prior to the lesson. If for any reason I cannot provide your lesson as scheduled I will make up the lesson at a mutually convenient time or will credit tuition for the following month.
TUITION RATES ♫

1-hour lesson: $65
45-min lesson: $48
30-min lesson: $35

FEES ARE PAYABLE MONTHLY AND DUE IN ADVANCE ON THE FIRST LESSON OF EACH MONTH TO AVOID 10% LATE FEE
TARDINESS ♫ Tardiness is not possible because the next student must start his lesson on time.
VACATIONS ♫ Lessons will continue through the summer. Please give at least one-month notice if a student will miss lessons due to a vacation. If you wish to reserve the assigned lesson time after vacation a tuition payment for next month after vacation is required.
LESSON TERMINATION ♫ I reserve the right to terminate piano lessons if a student repeatedly misses lessons or fails to practice. A one-month trial period will precede the termination. Lessons terminated by the student require a one-month notice.

Policy is subject to change. Thank you for your cooperation.
