PIANO LESSON PAYMENT POLICY

 

 

I am also available for

       piano purchase consultations  

    

No, I don't sell pianos!  But I can help you make the right choice for your situation.

The purchase of a piano is a complex and expensive proposition, but all too often, non-musicians leap into this major purchase without professional advice.  Such informed guidance can be invaluable in preventing problems and disappointments in years to come.

I will be happy to help you, whether you are seeking a new or a used piano, and in many cases there is no charge for my services, which include a trip to the store or other location.

 

 

In addition to piano lessons,

    I am available for instruction

    in the following areas:

    harmony  -  keyboard harmony

    ear training  -  form & analysis

          coaching of student chamber groups
