Frequently asked questions
Do I have to sign up for 6 months of lessons? Is there a minimum contract?
There are no minimum number of months. All of our students pay a month-to-month tuition. If you'd like to stop lessons, we'd just end your lessons at the close of the current month of the date you contacted us to end the lessons.
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
The process is easy. Just contact us with your preferred times, email and home address and we'll respond with scheduling options for you to choose from. That's it. We'll take care of the rest.
Can a student be "too old" or "too young" for piano lessons?
We've worked with all ages from preschool to retirement. Rest assured that no one is too old to begin. Students younger than 4 years old are recommended to do a group music class to get an introduction to music through movement. However, many students are capable to take lessons with us starting at 4 years old. We incorporate movement and activities into the lessons so that the young students don't have to sit still during the lesson.
What questions should parents or adult students think through before talking to professionals about taking piano lessons?
Before taking lessons, you want to make sure that you have a regular weekly time slot that you can have your lessons. Learning an instrument is similar to learning a language and it takes regular practice and instruction to really take hold in your brain and get your mind to understand the language of music.
What if I have to cancel a lesson?
If for any reason you need to cancel a lesson, please make sure to reach out to your teacher as soon as you can. We aren't able to credit lessons cancelled by the family, but we do try our best to do a makeup when requested.
What happens if there's inclement weather and it's unsafe to travel?
If there are unsafe weather conditions for the teacher to travel to your home, we have the option of conducting the lesson via Zoom, or by simply making up that lesson. If neither of these options are possible, then you will receive a credit for the lesson.
I received an email that said you're closed for the Holiday? What Holidays are you open?
We definitely understand that how you spend your money is important to you and that you want to make sure you're not paying for something that you're not receiving.
Do I pay the same tuition during the Summer Session if I go on vacation?
Our Summer Session has a 7-day cancellation period. Just let your teacher know you have to cancel at least 7 days before your lesson.
