Miss Jen Music Instruction 2018 - 2019

Policies and Expectations

Students should arrive promptly for their scheduled lesson time. Students are welcome to wait at the homework table if they arrive early. 

Parents are welcome to stay for their child’s lesson. Parents may sit at either the homework table or in the piano room.

Each week, students will be given an assignment sheet. This explains the practice expectations for the week. I know that many of my students are extremely busy, but students that are not able to practice at least 4 days a week may want to consider putting their lessons on hold until they are able to commit to a more rigorous practice schedule. 

Tuition is due at the beginning of each quarter. Tuition is $175 for piano or voice lessons, and $245 for piano AND voice. Cash is preferred, but check and credit card are also accepted. The first month's bill includes a $40 enrollment fee to cover all expenses for the year. This includes books and materials. This does not include entry fees for contests or workshops. If there are multiple children in the family, the second child will be charged $20 and the third child will be charged $10. This is based on the assumption that older siblings will pass down their books to their younger siblings, therefore eliminating the need to purchase new books. 

The year is divided into 4 quarters. Each quarter consists of 8 lessons. Students pay for 7 lessons, and receive the 8th lesson free. However, if a student misses a lesson during the quarter, the 8th lesson will be used as a make-up, and the student will forfeit their free lesson. THERE WILL BE NO MAKEUP LESSONS. 

There will be two performance opportunities during the year; the Holiday  Recital on December 16 and the Spring Recital on April 28.

Miss Jen Music Instruction will be participating in four piano competitions this year. Competitions are a great way to test that musical knowledge, but not all competitions are right for everyone. Please ask me if you have any questions regarding your child’s readiness for the following events we will be attending this year:

___________ Fall Festival - November 10, 2018

___________ Fun Fair - February 2, 2019

___________ Trophy Festival - April 27, 2019

___________ District Music Festival - May 4, 2019

Please feel free to email me with questions or concerns at any time. I appreciate any feedback regarding my students! jennifer.m.cimino@gmail.com
