Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it take before I can play well?

No reputable teacher can give you a specific timetable.  Each student learns at a different rate. Some students have more time to practice and more natural ability. If you put in the time, follow your teacher's directions and practice correctly, you will progress.

Do I have a choice of teacher, day and time?

If you request a specific teacher and he or she is available, all attempts will be made to satisfy your request.
You will be given a list of available days and times and you choose the one that best suits your schedule.

What is the policy on missed lessons?

Advance notice is needed in order to receive a make-up lesson. Make-ups are given only for illness or family emergency. (Any other reason may not be sufficient to receive a make-up lesson). Each teacher has their own policy and all are willing to work with you.

Must I have my own instrument at home for practice?

Absolutely. Many of our beginning piano students use keyboards for home practice.
(The keys must be piano size and have at least 61 notes).

Do you rent or sell instruments?

We do not, but we will recommend a place for to buy or rent an instrument.

What do the lessons cover?
