Tuitions and Fees
We are happy to have you and/or your child as a student with us. We hope that you enjoy your time with us. We expect each student to make progress from year to year. To make expected progress requires regular daily practice at home. As the student progresses the practice time should increase.

We have a yearly Spring Recital in which everyone is encouraged to participate. Recitals give everyone the opportunity to perform and hear others perform. This gives them a goal to work towards each year. If you choose to participate in the recital it is expected that the student take it seriously and work hard to learn their music well.

Spring Break
Required Practice If your child has been taking lessons for:

One year or less - practice time should be 20-30 minutes per day.
One to Two years - practice time should be 30 minutes to 1 hour per day.
Two years or more - practice time should be 1 hour or more. To really make progress 2 hours or more is best.

It is ideal to practice every day of the week, though 5 days is what I require. If a student practices 3 days or less, the progress is extremely slow (if any).
Spring Recital All students are encouraged to perform in the Recital each year. It is required that each student learn between 1 - 3 pieces for the recital. Each student must learn their music well enough so they feel confident in their ability to perform at their best. To accomplish this it requires a commitment from the student and the parent to practice regularly and attend as many lessons as possible.
