The following studio policies are in accordance with those recommended by
MTNA and MMTA for independent music teachers.
All tuition will be paid by semester either online or mailed to the Studio
Lesson fees are based on 29 half hour lessons. Tuition fees have been raised $1.
The Studio will have all music materials available for purchase for piano and guitar. Guitar students can also find equipment at Marshall Music, Elderly Instruments, and Guitar Center in Lansing and in Grand Rapids.
All students progress if consistent time is given to daily practice. Parents must be available to encourage good practice habits and to let us know if problems occur.
Students should always come to lessons prepared by
bringing their music and lesson notebook.
Materials seem to be remembered more easily if they are kept in a music bag.
Students, please remember to wash your hands before playing the piano
and keyboard at your lesson to help avoid spreading illness.
