'' Musicians of Suntree''

Welcome to ''Musicians of Suntree'' piano studio

Dear Students and Families,


I would like to take a moment to welcome all of my wonderful students to this new, exciting school year of piano lessons! We had a very fruitful past year. We had winners in the "Brevard's Got Talent" Competition, The Space Coast Young Artists Competition, The Royal Conservatory Exams, and Federation. Some of my students were chosen to perform for the BMTA conference, the Peskanov Piano Olympics, and some were chosen to play on a radio show. I am very proud! Thank you for your dedication and hard work. To all of my students, I'm so excited that you have chosen to pursue music as a path to perfect self-expression and joy! My vision is that you have a long and wonderful journey, filled with music and love. We will have an extremely busy year, with many exciting events in which you can choose to participate.


To the families of my students, I consider it a privilege to be involved in this aspect of your child's life. I know you have many options of piano studios, and I feel honored that you have chosen to continue or to start lessons with me. Being an active member of different music teachers associations, I will provide numerous opportunities for students to perform and attend numerous events and competitions. I wish luck to all of my students who will compete in these prestigious competitions. Please take a moment to become familiar with my Studio Policy for this 2014-2015 year, shown below.


Have a wonderful 2014-2015 school year. I am looking forward to our lessons together!


STUDIO POLICY



As a member in good standing with the Music Teachers National Association (MTNA), Florida State Music Teachers Association (FSMTA), and Brevard Music Teachers Association (BMTA), I adhere to strict guidelines regarding billing process, missed, cancelled and make-up lessons. There is a one-time registration fee of $20 to be paid at the beginning of school year (August-September). Please remember that the tuition fee is due the first lesson of the month.

Cancelled Lessons.


A lesson will be excused for emergencies only. Non-emergency cancellations, last-minute cancellations, and “no shows” will necessitate charging the full lesson fee. With sufficient notice (at least 24 hours in advance) lessons may be rescheduled for a later time at mutual convenience. Please note that I am also an Adjunct Professor at the music department of Florida Institute of Technology and my schedule is very tight, so, please, try to not miss lessons. Please also note that the tuition reserves an exclusive weekly time for your child. Each student has to have four lessons a month.


Studio Closings.


Our studio vacations and closings coincide with the Brevard county school schedule. I charge for four lessons a month. Four times a year we will have five lessons in a month. This enables me to take Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Spring Break vacations with the tuition remaining the same.


Thank you for choosing “Musicians of Suntree” studio.
