Piano Lessons

“It is never too early to start learning the piano. It is also never too late.”

– Prin

Piano Curriculum:

Piano lessons include:

  • Music theory
  • Sightreading
  • Songwriting
  • Personalized song and exercise selection

Piano Lesson Style:

Classical music, Pop, Ear training, and Improv

Do I need a piano to start lessons?

No, but you do need a keyboard.

Piano Teacher Practice Expectations:

I expect my students to practice daily. Even 5 minutes is better than no minutes.

Piano Lesson Schedule – Weekly Lessons:

I encourage students to see me once a week for 30 minutes.

Older and advanced students may take 45 or 60 minute lessons, if needed.

Piano Lessons – Costs/Fees: Expected for 2022

Piano lessons are $40 for 30 minutes in my home (Pequannock, NJ / Pompton Plains, NJ). That schedule is very limited at this time. The same rate applies to virtual lessons.

Songwriting lessons, music production lessons, or hybrid vocal and piano lessons start at $45 for 45 minutes. Please, note that Hybrid piano and vocal lessons are available but rates are dependent on student’s age and abilities.

Online lessons are offered with live (scheduled) Zoom, Skype, or Facetime lessons.

In-person piano lessons at student’s homes have been suspended due to Covid-19. Online learning will be available until further notice for piano lessons.

Group lessons are postponed until further notice, too.

In-person lessons resumed at Prin’s home as of October 2020,  following these social distancing rules for the student and teacher: 

  • -masks will be worn by teacher and student during the lesson (except when singing)
  • -student will attend lesson at teacher’s studio space in Pequannock, NJ
  • -student will attend piano lesson without parent present (drop off / pick up)
  • -teacher will disinfect area, keyboard, and stagger lessons in between students

Looking ahead: 

It’s been a challenge to provide piano lessons for my entire student and program roster. Given the uncertainty caused by Covid-19, I have tried to provide as many flexible options for my families. I’ll do my best to accommodate any special issues or scheduling conflicts.

October 2021 – As we begin to feel more back to “normal,” I am continuing my policy of virtual and / or in-person lessons at my home. I do not foresee returning to lessons at students’ homes in the current school year.

BILLING:

I bill in advance to reserve lesson days and times for private lessons. Lessons are not lost when cancelled or rescheduled, but I will make note of any habitual cancelling at the last minute. If a student does not register and pay for their lesson bundle, they do not secure their day and time for a lesson. I cannot save a day and time without payment, because other families are waiting to hear back from me to fit them into my roster. 

I accept Venmo, Paypal, Zelle, and / or cash and checks.

The first lesson for new students is a single no-obligation paid trial.

Lessons are also available via Skype or Facetime for those outside of the NY and NJ area!

Skype piano lessons, virtual piano lessons, piano lessons on Facetime, and all modern virtual leaning tools for music education are available. Just ask! I am also able to do screen share lessons for those interested in songwriting lessons and music production lessons. 

Group Piano Lesson – Costs/Fees:

At this time, due to Covid-19, all group piano and music programs have been suspended until further notice. It is possible we will resume group programs in the Pequannock, NJ area only for Summer 2022.

Rainbow Piano – Costs / Fees:

This is a private and group piano class that enables very young learners and those with special needs to adapt quickly to the piano concepts. I have had great success introducing a diverse group of students to piano with this method. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, I am unavailable to bring rainbow piano to school settings or daycare settings, and I am unable to bring rainbow piano to your home. This program is suspended until further notice.

However…

I enjoy using this method and have had success for almost 20 years helping students with various developmental disabilities enjoy learning piano and music this way. If you would like private lessons with me to use the Rainbow Piano method, contact me to discuss your specific needs and goals. Please, don’t hesitate to inform me and I will try to accommodate your situation during the current Covid-19 pandemic.

The Piano Teacher – to – Piano Student Relationship:

  1. My students are encouraged to perform and create their own music, too.
  2. Practicing in between lessons is key.
  3. For young students, it’s crucial that parents make the time for their child to practice. I can’t control a student’s practicing outside of my lesson with them.
  4. Piano lessons are often a music lesson for the parent, too. I send lesson notes that I take during the lesson via text (or email) to parents each week. The goal is to make it easy for parents to help with at-home practicing of the instrument.
  5. My relationship with a student is to help them grow in music. A student’s relationship with music is up to them. Not everyone is a natural musician, but everyone can learn to appreciate music. My goal is to help a student with the learning process, and I’m not overly pushy with performance pressure. I do, however, offer performing opportunities with recitals and other local events, and I also allow for studio recording or digital recording for students who show interest. It would be nice to participate in a recital once a year before the summer. While I am very flexible with scheduling conflicts and other family and student demands, I do expect students to practice in between lessons, and I will address this consistently, if a student is not practicing too many lessons in a row. If a student does not practice at all in between lessons, it is likely we won’t be the best fit together after a few months. The main reason is not for my sake, but that not practicing makes a student feel unprepared and lack confidence during their lesson with me, which in turn, makes a child avoid piano and me!
