Dress Code

Fingernails are to be kept trimmed; and please, no gum chewing

at lessons or events.

Casual clothes are in order for lessons

All recitals, competitions, auditions, etc. require dresses or skirts and blouses for girls and dress pants, shirt, tie & dress shoes for boys.  No tennis shoes are allowed for these special events.

Instrument Care

A piano needs good care; most pianos need a minimum of tuning

bi-annually.  If a student’s ear and musical sensitivity are to develop, your piano must be in the best possible condition.  I can recommend a piano tuner if needed.  Good lighting and an adjustable bench are also important.
