Are you ready to begin your new musical journey? Have you already connected with Elizabeth to discuss your future musical goals, your custom curriculum plan, and which instructor with whom you'll be studying? Have you read through the Studio Policy? Then submit the registration form below and we look forward to working with you!
Private Lesson Details: Private lessons are available for piano, keys, acoustic guitar, bass guitar, voice, and violin. Weekly private lessons include performance repertoire, music theory, scales, and technique. Quarterly group classes utilize a carefully constructed curriculum and take the place of the private lesson for that week as we study ear training, music history, music and culture, and incorporate applicable music technology.
Early Childhood Music Details: Through the creative use of play and the renowned Let's Play Music curriculum, children learn valuable skills, such as ear training, rhythm, notation reading, and attuned listening to assist with speech development, math, and reading setting them up for success in their future musical and academic education!
Communication: Communication within the Studio is highly valued. Communication occurs via email, an occasional text, and posts on the My Music Staff Portal. Parents are also welcome to communicate in person at any time at the beginning of their student's lesson time. No logistical communication may happen at the end of the lesson, as that may interfere with another student's lesson time.
Attendance + Makeups: Please be on time for your lesson, as tardiness results in lost instruction time. All teacher absences due to professional obligations, illness, or emergencies will be made up. Monies are not transferrable, though makeup lessons may possibly be scheduled by rearranging with another student through the My Music Staff Student Portal (contact Karah Huld at firstname.lastname@example.org for login info). It is the students' responsibility to check the Portal for available makeup slots. Makeup lessons are not guaranteed; a minimum of 48 hours notice is required to attempt a makeup lesson. Students may arrange makeup lessons up to three times per school year; makeup credits expire in 90 days. Non-emergency cancellations, last- minute cancellations including inclement weather or illness (within 48 hours) and “no-shows” may not be rescheduled or refunded, though online classes are an option.
Tuition + Fees: Monthly tuition is averaged throughout the year based upon 42 annual lessons. The additional 10 weeks include Spring Break (1 week), Summer Break (between June and July, 2 weeks), Fall Break (between August and September, 2 weeks), Thanksgiving Break (1 week), Christmas Break (2 weeks), and your teacher's personal unpaid vacation (dates vary, 2 weeks). Official holidays include New Year’s Day, Spring Break, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. There is an annual $25/student (or $40/family) administrative and events fee, automatically deducted with September's tuition.
Parent Participation: The study of music is rewarding and enjoyable, but it is also work! Parents are a very important part of the learning process. You will be working as the “home teacher” as you supervise daily practicing. You are welcome to attend lessons and audio/video recording of lessons is encouraged. Each student will progress only when the assigned material is sufficiently mastered, as private lessons are progressive.
Summer Lessons: Summer Session is during the months of July and August. Lessons are held on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. Students are expected to attend at least one month of summer lessons to hold their Fall lesson slot.
Termination Policy: We know life happens! If you need to discontinue lessons, we just require 15 days notice and hope to see you back soon!
It is my sincere desire that our teaching and your support at home will form an effective team as we cultivate a love for music!
I'll see you in the practice room,
