Hello Lovely Parents and Students,
Here we are at the end of another year of teaching and learning! As always, I have learned a lot. About piano, about music, and about life. I hope you and your children have too. Now is the time of year when I must ask you all to declare your piano lesson intentions.
There are three options:
– continue with lessons during the summer,
– stop for the summer but resume in September, or
– give notice that you are terminating your lessons at the end of June.
For summer lessons: scheduling is a somewhat casual affair. Simply ask for the times and dates you would like (my availability is Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday 11:30am-7:30pm. You can keep your regular time slot if you like. I will invoice you for all the lessons you have booked for July and August, with payment required up front before July lessons begin. We proceed as normal, except there are no make-up lessons for summer cancellations. Please let me know if you wish to continue with your current time slot when regular weekly lessons resume in September.
For taking a summer break from lessons: I require a non-refundable deposit to reserve your current time slot. This is in the form of a postdated cheque for the amount of September lessons. If you continue in September, the deposit is applied to September lessons. If you change your mind about continuing, the deposit is not refunded.
Thank you all for trusting me to help you or your children learn and grow at the piano. See you all this week, and happy practicing!
