Piano Student Guidelines
  • Piano lessons in Ottawa
  • I use the Boris Berlin, Alfred and RCM Celebration series of books for children, teens and adults.
  • Students are responsible for tuition, books and exam fees.
  • 4 weeks notice is required for a student cancellation
  • Teaching schedule is weekly from Sept to June. No lessons March Break (1 week), Christmas (2 weeks), Halloween. No lessons throughout July and August.
  • Tuition is for lesson time held for student, not a fee for services rendered. A missed lesson is a missed lesson. At the end of the month you pay for lessons scheduled, not for lessons attended.
  • Tuition is to be paid at beginning of each month, cheque or cash, no refunds.
  • Students must have an acoustic piano or a touch sensitive digital piano with minimum 61 keys at home for practice.
  • 24 hour notice is required for missed lessons. I will allow 2 missed lesssons per Sept- June, after that the student will be charged.
  • Payment will be forefeited for last minute cancellations.
  • Vacation, scheduling issues require 2 weeks notice.
  • Any lessons cancelled by teacher (snowstorm, illness) will be made up the following month.
  • I reserve the right to remove any student who does not comply with these policies
