Method & Policy

The lessons are held once a week. The minimum age is 6 years old. Please contact me for availability and rates. I also ask that you please reimburse me for the cost of books - each book typically costs between $5-10.  

Cancellation policy: Within 1 session (4-6 months) you may have 1 cancellation at no charge. For further cancellations I will charge the full price of the lesson.  
  • I require at least 6 hours notice for a cancellation. My teaching time is limited and with less than 6 hours notice I will charge for that lesson time. 
  • If I show up for an at-home lesson and no one is home, I will charge for that lesson.
  • Should you need to make a lesson shorter on the day of the lesson, please pay the full amount for the time scheduled.
  • I will try to reschedule a cancellation, but I do not guarantee a make-up because I have so many lessons per week.
I hold 2 recitals a year for my students, one in the Winter and one in the late Spring. There was no Spring 2020 recital due to Covid-19 and social distancing. The recitals are a great opportunity for students to showcase their hard work and are an important milestone in a student's development, and I look forward to the next one. 

I use Faber & Faber's Piano Adventures Method, which focuses on being able to read music and play pieces that are familiar. I do not teach by ear. My beginners start with Piano Adventures Lesson Book Primer Level and I use supplemental material as seems fit. Piano Adventures
