Each family will be assigned to one recital time. There is a $15.00 recital fee per family to cover the rental. I hope all students will participate in both the November and June recitals.

**NATIONAL PIANO GUILD AUDITIONS: Tentitive dates: June 6-7, 2019 at the Christ the Savior Lutheran Church. 10500 E 126th Street, Fishers, 46038.

The Guild Auditions give the student a chance to play 3-10 memorized pieces for a judge. This is usually for the student in 2nd -3rd year and above. The student is judged by how well he plays the music and all students can receive a first place rating. There is an entry fee of $40-$60, depending on how many pieces are played and your level. This is quite an accomplishment and a great way to end the school year.

TUITION is due at the first lesson of the month or by the 7th of the month!
I will put the tuition reminder on the student’s assignment. Please pay the late fee if you pay after the 7th and other arrangements have not been made. Late fee-$10.
Tuition is based upon a 12 month, year round program, running from August through July. All months will be the regular tuition. It doesn’t matter how many lessons are in the month. Each month’s tuition is the same. There are 40 lessons total per year.

60 MIN 3 or more people: $97 per month or $1164 per year.45 MIN 2 people: $97 per month or $1164 per year.


60 MIN 2 people: $119 per month or $1428 per year.
PRIVATE LESSONS: 4-6 times during the year, private students may have a 1-hour group lesson instead of a private

30 MIN PRIVATE + RESOURCE TIME: $119 per month or $1428 per year.
45 MIN PRIVATE LESSON + RES. TIME: $171 per month or $2052 per year.

SNOW DAY POLICY Please do not assume because school is canceled due to snow that piano is canceled. Because piano is later in the day, there are many snow days that I still teach. Please call to check the day of the lesson. If lessons do have to be canceled because of snow, I will try very hard to figure out a make up schedule.


Please, please do not schedule doctor, dentist appointments during your piano time. Because specific times are set-aside for specific students, a student who does not attend a lesson will simply miss the benefit of that lesson. I will then use that time or other times to plan for the student’s progress, locate materials, etc. There are no refunds given. However, there are two ways you may be able to reschedule.

1) SWAP: Let me know you will be missing a lesson IN ADVANCE, and I will see if someone will swap times with you. The more IN ADVANCE you plan, the more likely this is to work.

2) MAKE UP LIST: As long as you let me know before the lesson begins that you are missing a lesson, I will put your name on the MAKE UP LIST. Then, when other student cancels or I can fit you in, I will let you know about times available. Many times these are at the last minute, so you may choose to use the time or not. I will keep trying to offer you times as they come up.


All students are strongly urged to take piano lessons in the summer, if you wish to continue in the fall. In the summer you need to pay the regular monthly tuition fee. The studio is open 7 weeks in the summer. We can schedule those to fit your schedule. I will offer the 2-hour camps again in July, so you will only need to come 1 or 2 weeks in July. You are also welcome to come all 3 weeks. If you cannot make all summer weeks, you may need to come twice in one week. Payment is still due at the beginning of the month in June and July. Help me work with your summer schedule by letting me know what it is!
