Lessons take place once a week from September 5, 2017 to June 23, 2018.

Tuition Payments

Tuition is $22 per lesson. There are 39 lessons during the school year. This works out to $86 for each month from September to June, or $860 per school year. Monthly Tuition Payments are based on a full school year amount divided by 10 to provide for easy monthly installments. Consequently, some months will have more lesson weeks than other months, but the monthly tuition payment remains the same. Payments may be made by cash, cheque or Interac e-Transfer. NSF cheques will incur a $25 fee.

Supplemental Materials Fee

This is a fee of $15 per year, per student, and covers incidentals associated with teaching. This fee will cover items such as photocopying, printed materials and games to use during lessons, downloading music and worksheets from the Internet, loan of music books to students, and incentive programs. The materials fee does not pay for the student’s lesson books or theory books. The materials fee is not optional.

Practice Expectations

Piano lessons are successful only if a student is practicing their pieces at home, in a focused and guided manner. Having a regular, uninterrupted time for practice is essential. Our job as teachers is to be inspiring, enthusiastic, and to choose repertoire to strengthen skills. The student’s job is to take it from there, and be as prepared and enthusiastic at lessons as they can be! Practicing shouldn’t be onerous, and each of our teachers has their own suggestions for practice duration and frequency.

The piano is a shared instrument, and illness can be easily passed from student to student. Students are expected to wash their hands before each lesson. Students who are ill are asked to not attend lessons. If your child is continually coughing or sneezing, do not bring them to lessons. Note: We reserve the right to cut short any lesson if a student is ill with symptoms of a cough, cold, or flu.


One Spring Recital will be held in May 2018. There is a $15.00 recital fee for each participating student.
