Hello everyone, lessons are off to a good start this fall. It is a pleasure to see everyone each week.
The 2016-17 instructional calendar is now available, and parents will find a copy in the student's binder. It is also available for reference or download any time at our web site http://harmonyhouse.ca.
The first event coming up will be the Halloween piano parties on Oct. 29th and 30th for ages 6 to 12. These costume parties are always fun, and students will have a chance to hear each other's pieces. Please watch for your invitations and sign-up details.
This is also a reminder that lessons are cancelled on Halloween, and we will have lessons on Thanksgiving Monday instead.
I have two teaching studios, and Studio B is cat free for anyone with allergies. Students who come early can warm up in one studio while I finish with a student in the other.
If you have two students in a family coming on different days you may choose who comes to each lesson time; I am happy to see them in any order. If possible, please give me an advance notice who will be attending to allow me to prepare accordingly.
One important request: please remember that if a student is sick with a cold, or otherwise not feeling well, please don't come to the lesson; let's reschedule to a time when he or she is feeling better. If you give us a call we'll be happy to find a make-up time, or you can log in to the parent/student portal to select an available time.
If anyone needs a piano or is interested in upgrading, I can help choose a suitable instrument.
This is also a reminder that our policies now include two new sections, one on unavoidable teacher absence and one on extra lessons. If I feel that a student will benefit from an additional lesson I will arrange that with you, usually on a scheduled make-up day. The policies are on our web site.
