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.

 

 

MATERIALS

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.
