The studio lesson schedule is 40 weeks from August 28, 2023 through May 30, 2024.

Tuesday through Thursday lessons include 36 weeks of lessons and 4 weeks for holidays and spring break.

This year, Monday lessons will have 30 weeks of lessons due to how the federal holidays land on the calendar. Monday lessons are studio only, and the Monday rate will reflect the fewer lessons.

The 2023-24 year concludes with a Red Carpet Recital on Sunday evening, June 2, 2024.

Summer Sessions 1 & 2: June and August. No lessons in July.


Group lessons are an additional benefit to private lessons in Sempre Piano Studio. Private piano students attend the monthly group lessons in my studio on the first Sunday of each month (except September & January). Students are grouped according to age and level. Each group lesson lasts 90 minutes (except the December all-group lesson).

Group lessons include music-themed group games, learning about the composer of the month or specific music element, and students play a current piece(s), polished or in progress, for other students.
