SONGS:

All students should bring their song books and music writing books and a pencil, ruler and colouring pencils to every piano class. If possible, the music writing books will stay with us for marking. Once complete, students can keep their music writing books home.


Students will get a date stamp in their song book on each new song to indicate what is expected to be practiced.

For every song that is played properly, a merit stamp will be given. All dated songs without a merit stamp should continue to be practiced.

REPORT CARDS:

A music progress report card will be prepared for each student at the end of each term. The piano lesson report card will be thorough and will contain your grades in multiple areas along with comments.

PIANO EXAMINATIONS:

Every student should manage to be well prepared for their piano examination. There are two parts of the piano examinations, music writing called: theory and the playing part called: practical. The exams are held in May. Two quality frameable certificates are issued with your children's names printed on them.

RECITAL:

For students that are prepared, there will be a recital one evening in June for the students to perform for their parents, other family members, and friends that may wish to attend. Students must know their song(s) to be invited to perform in the recital.

OVERVIEW:

Usually, students that give up did not bring their music books to class and did not practice at home. You can do it! Bring your books! Practice! Practice for at least 10 minutes at home every day.

These piano classes have been in various schools across Canada for over 50 years! Most students have managed to have a great success with learning to read music to play the piano!

Music is your life long adventure!

Warmest Regards,

Your Piano Teachers
