Hopefully your child is as excited as I am to begin lessons again.
We are planning a Christmas recital again this year, and I will let you know as soon as I can the specifics on this. We will also try to get involved in the Levels of Progress as offered by the Tidewater Music Teacher’s association. This is a non-competitive contest where the students will get to play their piece for a different piano teacher and that teacher will give them tips, suggestions and a score. I haven’t decided on the spring recital yet, but you will know well in advance if we plan one.
Lessons will be on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Lesson times are on a first-come, first-served basis, so if you want a particular time slot, be sure to call me as soon as possible. I will do my best to accommodate your preferences. Please also have the registration sheet ready to give to me for the first lesson, if not before.
Please make sure you are familiar with all of my studio policies.
If you do not have a full sized keyboard—at least 66 keys with a pedal, now would be a good time to consider making an investment into such an item. As your child progresses, it won’t always be possible for them to practice all the nuances of the piece without the proper equipment. Another necessary item is a metronome. These can be purchased online or at Music and Arts in Greenbrier. The other supplies are listed in the policy letter.
I am looking forward to seeing you again this year! Please have your child bring the last book they were in before summer break so we can review, if necessary. I will purchase new books (if necessary) after I assess their level. (Some students will need to have more review than others, especially if they didn’t practice over the summer.)
You can call me at 549-9103 or email me as I check my mail once a day.
