Younger Students

  • I understand that I will need to practice anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour-at least three to five days a week.

Parents

  • If my child is under the age of twelve, I will help monitor practice at least four days a week. I understand that my child will not always want to do the work/practice, but it is essential to practice in order to have fun playing the piano. 
  • If my child is under the age of seventeen, I will be an active parent and participate in upcoming workshops and recitals.
  • I believe that music is an essential part of my child's education and not just "if there is an interest" or "if my child has talent".
  • I will provide a weighted keyboard for my child when starting piano lessons, and will purchase an acoustic piano within a year of lessons.
  • I will be on time when dropping off/picking up my child to/from lessons.
  • I will be responsible for getting new books for my child when necessary.
  • Should special circumstances arise (i.e. the child does not wish to practice), I will communicate the situation with the teacher and work together to resolve it.
  • I will make sure there is a good practicing environment for my child at home.
  • I understand that my involvement is crucial to my child enjoying piano lessons.
