Studio ExpectationsStudents (it's all about you!)
Please come to your lesson "practiced up" and prepared to play beautifully. Be prepared to follow instructions your teacher gives you. Please do not bring candy or drinks with you to the piano and remember to turn off your cell phone. The actual work of learning the piano and the credit for success rests with the student. Even the wisest and most competent teacher cannot master the piano for you. This is a great opportunity to develop discipline, learn to schedule priorities and to understand that there is not always enough time in the day to do everything, but to choose wisely those things that are important. The piano requires the ability to study independently. Set aside a certain time each day to practice so that it becomes habitual. Practice may be divided into several sessions...so relax and have fun learning a new skill and new way to express yourself.
