Previewing Our Summer Sequel
As we near the completion of our current school year, I am very excited to share my summer "tickets" with you. We will be keeping up with our "Hollywood & Harmony" theme this summer while customizing lessons for each student based on their skills and goals. Students, think of it as scripting your own action-packed movie on the big screen where you are the main character. Every student will work on theory (the building blocks for music composition) and you'll also get to make your own choices and overcome unique challenges as we develop your piano plot. But don't worry; I'll be alongside you to help direct this masterpiece of yours along the way. I know you will emerge victorious as the musical hero you are before the credits roll! So, grab some popcorn, read on about our summer "tickets," and get ready to POP back on over to the piano!
Why is it important to take summer piano lessons?
Students have more free time in the summer. During the school year, they have limited time for piano practice due to homework constraints.
Summer distractions are minimal, allowing for more focus on music instead of thinking about homework, projects or tests.
Summer lessons increase creativity. Students have time to explore different musical styles and focus on specific skill-based projects, like composition.
Students keep moving forward. Piano progress is a lot like physical fitness. If you take the summer off, you lose what you did not use. This re-learning process can be very frustrating, but thankfully, it's avoidable.
Piano playing provides a healthy alternative to "screen time." Piano lessons provide a schedule break from video games, phones and television.
Every child deserves the lifelong benefits and joys that come from music, especially the foundation of all instruments—the piano. My summer program offers a variety of fun choices for students!
Reserving Your Spot
Palmer Piano Studio policy is that students must take a minimum of 6 thirty-minute lessons or 4 forty-five minute lessons throughout the summer to reserve their spot for fall.
Summer is a great time for starting new students. It puts them ahead of the curve for fall lessons instead of waiting and adding one more new thing to a new school year.
Summer scheduling is easy. Done entirely online, each lesson is individually scheduled so you can pick and choose what works for your family, week by week.
Tuition and Scheduling
Lesson will begin Monday, June 19th and end Friday, August 25th.
*Remember, all students must take a minimum of 6 thirty-minute lessons or 4 forty-five minute lessons throughout the summer to reserve their spot for fall.*
Tuition rates for summer remain unchanged and are listed below. Families will indicate on their summer registration form how they intend to pay: in full by June 15, half by June 15 and remaining balance by July 15 or weekly. Invoices reflecting payment selection will be emailed in mid June and may be paid via check, Venmo or Wix. Payments made via Wix incur a transaction fee. Please note: tuition for all summer lessons must be received prior to when the lesson is given.
Time slots will be offered Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays during the daytime. Limited evening spots are also offered on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please reserve the evening spots for families who cannot make a daytime lesson work. A few Friday mornings are also offered when there is a holiday or I have a conflict earlier in the week.
