STUDIO POLICY

Above all music is for pleasure.

And, the rewards of serious study include personal discipline,

            creative expression,

                        complex problem solving a step at a time,

                                    social and performance skills,

                                                enhanced brain development, and

                                                            the exhilaration of doing beautiful things.

Attendance

Regular lessons are essential. There are no make ups for missed lessons, except for extended illness, but you can trade lesson times among students. There are no lessons during extended public school holidays, but lessons do continue on single day holidays, such as Mondays.

 

Practical Success Plan

Satisfying piano playing only develops with daily practice.  Plan and protect a set time every day, free from distractions.  Parents’ involvement is essential. Diligently follow the directions in your assignment. Watch for improvement, and celebrate what you learn!

 

Studio Opportunities

-National Guild Auditions: annual playing of 1 to 20 memorized pieces

-Certificate of Merit: California annual state testing program that includes performance, theory, ear training, sight reading and technique. Incremental levels 1 thru 10 (university level music).

-Monthly informal recitals at a retirement community

-Regular performances through Sacramento Branch Music Teachers’ Association: Bach Festival, Composers Today, Ensemble Recital, Memorial Scholarship Recital, West Coast Ragtime Festival.

-All styles of music are welcome in this studio –from classical to pop; folk to jazz; and, vocal, gospel and Broadway musicals.

-Composition and improvisation, playing by ear are welcome too.

 

Lessons and Financial Arrangements         

            -Beginning students usually take weekly 30 minute lessons followed by 30 minute music lab time: tuition $140 per month. As they advance, students need 45 to 60 minute lessons: tuition $210 and $280 per month. Daily practice must equal or preferably, double, the lesson time.

            -Occasional Small Groups for young children, and occasional partner lessons for adults

            -Monthly tuition is due in advance, the first of each month, September through May. June and July payments are adjusted by the number of lessons received. August is usually vacation.

Music is usually available at the studio, and the charge is added to the tuition.

            -Optional Guild and MTAC recitals, Certificate of Merit, workshops and theory classes have various entry fees.
