Summer Lessons June 4-August 29, 2024

Summer Lesson Enrollment

 Scroll down for the lesson request form…

Request lesson times between June 4-August 29, 2024.

Students must purchase a minimum of six summer lessons in order to be offered a lesson time in the next school year.

You may schedule more than one lesson per week or with a different teacher to get all your summer lessons in.

Summer tuition must be paid in full up front and is refundable until your first scheduled lesson.

Reschedule or cancel summer lessons up to 24 hours before the scheduled lesson time.

In-Studio lessons may use online booking or contact our office.

In-Home lessons may use our reservation form or contact our office.


Once I submit the form, what happens next?

We will create an account for you in our scheduling system and notify you if there is a spot available with one of our teachers.

Once you hear there is an opening, you may book lessons online or directly with our office.

How does summer billing work?

We will apply a balance for summer tuition on your account once we receive your lesson time request(s). The balance is due in full a minimum of 24 hours before your first scheduled lesson and is refundable until your first scheduled lesson.


Students who purchase six lessons during the summer will be given a weekly lesson time in the coming school year. Those who take fewer than six lessons must re-enroll on August 1st to request a lesson time and a spot is not guaranteed.

Do I get the same teacher each week?

When we notify you that there is a spot for your student, we will assign you to a specific teacher. Please schedule as many lessons as possible with your assigned teacher, but you may take lessons with other teachers during the summer to accommodate vacation schedules. 

In the coming school year, you will be placed with your originally assigned teacher and given a lesson time based on the open spots in the teacher’s schedule. Fall lesson times are assigned in late July-early August.

Real Acoustic Piano Required


If you are interested in piano lessons, please be aware that you need to have a real acoustic upright piano in your home before we can schedule lessons. Electronic keyboards are not suitable for students, even with 88 weighted keys.

We help families to find, purchase or rent upright pianos every week, so let our office know if you need help finding an instrument.

If you have a 3-6 year old beginner and aren’t ready for the commitment of a real piano, consider Exploring Music group classes that have no piano or practice requirement.


All in-studio lessons and classes held at the Grand Avenue Community Center

It’s great to start music lessons in the summer when the kids have more time to practice!

If we don’t take lessons through the summer, my kids forget everything!
