Piano lessons are given at the studio, which is located in Ellicott City, Maryland. I may be reached there on 410-812-1991. Anyone interested in taking lessons may call to see if I have openings and find a mutually convenient time. The first payment is due at the first lesson. Subsequent payments are due monthly, in advance, at the lesson before the first of each month.
The teaching year begins September 1st and ends August 31st. During July and August, students may pay for the number of weeks they will actually attend lessons. Absences during these 2 months shall be announced in advance of the month. Once announced, the price for the month becomes fixed for the agreed number of weeks.
Payments are due, in advance, for time reserved exclusively for you. When needed, I give extra lessons and repertoire classes, without an increase in charge, in exchange for lessons the student may miss. There are no “make-up” lessons. I request 24 hours advance notice to cancel a lesson, and 2 weeks advance notice to terminate lessons. The student is not charged, of course, for lessons that I miss.
The prices cover lesson time, but not music books, or entry fees into various local, state, and national piano competitions, auditions, or exams. I will give recommendations about where to purchase music during the lessons, and advice about whether the student is ready for these opportunities, along with associated pricing.
Rates are subject to change on September 1st of each year.
