Tuition is divided into ten equal payments which are due on the first lesson of the month and sheet music, instruction books, and recital fees are included. Please use Zelle for making tuition payments.

Practice

Daily practice is essential to your child’s progress and parents are encouraged to provide a quality acoustic piano for at-home practice. Proper piano study is best served by practicing on a fine instrument, as students will develop greater finger strength and dexterity, gain superior control of dynamics while allowing greater room for expression, and developing proper pedal technique which is not possible on a digital piano.
