When will we know if my child is accepted into the studio?
I will let you know if your child is accepted into the studio at the auditions or contact you within24 hours to let you know if your child will study with me.
What costs should I foresee for lessons in this studio?
Below are the items you will need to have at home and during lessons.Students will be required to purchase their books for practicing. I can buy them for you at a
teacher’s discount and charge the money to the next semester’s bill or I can give you a few
weeks notice so you can purchase the material.
Tuition offers the student a place and time slot in my studio.
Tuition can be paid for each of the3 to 4 semesters you will be taking lessons.
There are no refunds for student cancellations. Justas with ballet lessons, preschool, baseball or martial arts lessons, if a student misses a lesson or practice, that lesson cannot be made up.
Tuition includes master classes which
are aninvaluable asset to the studio! They are held about once a semester in replace of their regular weekly lesson. In essence, a master class provides a fun and informal opportunity for each studentto perform one piece for each other that they've been working on that month or semester, to learnor review much needed theory and to be publicly rewarded for their efforts in music. Master classes are usually done around recitals for the students to participate in performing in front of their peers in a non- pressured environment.Finally there is a small library/registration fee in the winter that will cover costs of damages tomy books and games loaned to students, recital fees, master class material and administrationexpenses.
What will we need at home if we are start taking lessons from this studio?
You will need a piano, metronome, a 3 ring binder and a pencil packet in the 3 ring binder for games they will take home, music bucks and pens and pencils.
