Lawrence Piano Studio Notes
September 1, 2016
I hope this letter finds everyone in good health and enjoying the beginning of the school year. We are finishing the process of scheduling lessons for the Fall of 2016. Please note on your calendars that lessons begin the week of August 29th. We are staring the week before Labor Day.
Jen Hosler , Laura King and Rachel Wilder are now teaching piano lessons during the day. If you would like to schedule a private lesson earlier in the day, please let me know.
PRIVATE LESSON TIMES:
You should have received a call from your teacher to schedule a lesson time. If you have not been contacted or are not planning on taking lessons this fall, please let me know as soon as possible.
All students in Group lessons should have received a lesson time. If I have not contacted you about a lesson time, please let me know as soon as possible.
Fees and Information:
Please check out our web site at www.lawrencepiano.com for information regarding the school year calendar, lesson fees and the missed lesson policy
I will send an invoice for the month of September which includes the regular monthly lesson fees and also includes the Library/Registration fees.
I will only send September statements to students that have either a balance due or credit from the summer or last spring.
(Note summer students, at the end of August I reviewed the summer lesson log of each teacher and adjusted the summer fees accordingly, please wait to receive this statement before paying September fees.)
Regular Monthly Billing:
Each month I will a send a billing statement. Statements are a summary of your account. A statement will include monthly invoices for lessons and any credit or past due charges. If you would like me to send an invoice that will detail each charge for a particular month, please let me know, I will send the invoice by email.
The invoice for the month of September will include a $25 per year (or $45 per family of two or more students) Library/Registration fee. Your September fees will either be $25 or $45 higher than your regular monthly fees. For more information about the Library/Registration fee, please check my website, www.lawrencepiano.com , and click on the “Policies Page” link at the bottom of the “Programs” page.
If you have any questions, feel free to call me at 842-2182 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Leave a message if I am not in, and I will return your call as soon as possible.
Online scheduling and communication:
We are beginning to use the online scheduling program “My Music Staff” this fall. There is a banner for this at the top of my website www.lawrencepiano.com .
Once we get everything up and running I will be sending an email that will explain how students and parents can login. With this program students will be able to contact their teacher to cancel and schedule make up lessons. There are many more functions to this program which we will be implementing in the months to come.
On your mark…..Get set……
I am very excited about the upcoming school year, as I begin my 36th year of teaching piano. I look forward to the challenges and evolution of teaching style that keep piano instruction fresh and invigorating for both student and teacher. I feel very lucky to be able to interact with your children on a weekly basis and look forward to the coming school year.
