Online lessons are available through Zoom, Facebook Messenger, or FaceTime. This format is ideal for students who have moved and would like to continue lessons until they’re settled, students who prefer this method of learning, or students who do not live locally and would like to study with me.
Students receive a detailed weekly lesson assignment sheet, access to my online music library memberships, and online recital events.
In addition to private lessons, online students can participate in a monthly online group lesson in which students play music-themed games, learn about the composer of the month, interact with other SPS students, and play their current piano pieces for other students.
Online lessons require my presence in my studio to have access to my piano, supplies, music, and video equipment during the lesson. The preparation time before and after online lessons is significantly more than a regular studio lesson. Students receive a detailed weekly assignment lesson sheet (PDF document), which often includes additional resources, links, and music. The lesson rates reflect these items and time.
Additionally, the online format is available to current SPS students who are unable to attend their regular studio or in-home lesson when they’re traveling or sickness prevents an in-person lesson.
Monthly tuition includes 36 weeks of lessons over a 40 week period (there are 4 weeks of vacation during Thanksgiving, Christmas & New Year’s, Spring Break). The tuition includes a weekly private lesson, and video participation for recital events. The 2023-24 school year begins on August 28 and concludes on May 30.
Monthly tuition provides continuity and efficiency for families. The months with 5 weeks of lessons evens out the months with 3 or 4 weeks of lessons. The final week of May is the 36th week and is included with the final invoice of May.
Fees. The semester supply fee is $35/per student and due in September & January. This fee covers lesson supplies, a selection of music, group lesson costs, and some special performances.

Summer lessons has two sessions: 2024 Summer Session I is from June 3 to 26. Summer Session II is from August 5 to 21. Lessons are available on M, T, & W. Summer sessions have a flexible schedule to accommodate students who attend summer camps and have travel plans. These two sessions are also a great opportunity for new students to take some lessons and see if SPS is a good fit for your family. Contact me for more information (firstname.lastname@example.org).
