The Studio

Recommended Daily Lesson Practice

Students are expected to have prepared their lessons each week. Daily practice is encouraged to make lesson time more beneficial to the student. Parents are encouraged to participate in a student’s practice schedule by listening and motivating the student.

  • Students with a 45 minute lesson = 45 minutes of daily practice  
  • Students with a 60 minute lesson = 60 minutes of daily practice

Piano Commitment

  • Piano Time Slot: Once you have signed up for piano lessons at a certain time slot during the fall and spring semester, you keep that time slot for both semesters of that particular year. For summer schedule, see Summer Lessons within studio policy.
  • Piano Commitment: Once a student has reserved a time for piano lessons, it is requested that they stay with that commitment for the full semester. If a student decides to stop piano lessons at the end of a semester, a 30-day notice must be given to instructor.


  • Attendance is expected at all scheduled lessons. If for some reason a student cannot attend, parents must call instructor at least 24 hours in advance.
  • There will be no makeup lessons if a student misses a lesson. Tuition has been adjusted accordingly to include missed lessons during the year.
  • Only in extraordinary circumstances and upon advance notice will a makeup lesson be considered (for example: religious holiday, family death). Makeup lessons will not be considered for school/personal or extra-curricular activities.
  • Only lessons missed due to snow will be rescheduled at instructor’s earliest convenience.
  • Teacher/Family Day: Teacher reserved the right to one sick day (for either sickness or emergency) per semester, one in Fall semester and one in Spring semester.  In this case, no makeup lesson will be given.
