MISSED PIANO LESSONS

If a student cancels a piano lesson due to sickness, vacation or conflicting extracurricular activities, Tuition is not prorated and there is no makeup for that lesson.

If Nell cancels a piano lesson due to weather or sickness, the lesson can be made up during the last 2 weeks of June. If a student cannot makeup their lessons in the available time slots, tuition will be prorated at the end of the year.

Students are encouraged to continue piano lessons in the summer. Summer tuition will be calculated weekly. The summer session will begin June 28, 2021.

PIANO RECITAL

There will be a piano recital in December and June at Trinity Episcopal Church in Portland. All students are strongly encouraged to play.

PRACTICE EXPECTATIONS

Students should practice piano a minimum of 5 times a week. There are busier times of year when exceptions can be made, but consistent practice at home is necessary. The longer the lesson time, the more practice time is required.
