How much do lessons cost? What are your payment policies?
Where are lessons conducted?
Generally Most lessons will be conducted at teacher`s home studio. My address is 381 Tanglin Road, #02-05, 247965. It is 500m walk distance from Redhill MRT station. If you Drive in, just tell the guard you are visiting your piano teacher at the stated adress.
How often and how long are the lessons?
Lessons run once a week with lengths from 30 minutes, 45 minutes, 60 minutes, 90 minutes and 180 minutes. The length of lessons is subject to availability and student ability. Many beginners will start with 45 minute lessons and increase from there during the course of their study.
Do you provide makeup lessons?
Yes. I do my best to provide these.
Do you encourage parents to observe lessons or participate in practice sessions?
Yes, I do. I encourage parents to be there during the lessons so that they know how to follow through with the practicing at home and know what is going on. That being said, I am flexible: I understand that sometimes parents are quite busy and may want to drop their child off for lessons to do other tasks, or perhaps their child will actually be more comfortable and less distracted with the parent not there in the lesson.Parents are welcome to sit and relax at my living room while waiting for their child to finish their lesson. I always write in a communication notebook what I expect the student to practice for the week. Any messages I want to convey to parents will be written in that book as well and I am regularly in touch via email. In general, I think it is good to keep in mind that active parents will speed up the learning of a young student.
My child has a younger sibling. Is it OK if they sit in on the lessons too?
I’d be delighted if they joined! Exposure to music is absolutely critical for young children. What better way to get exposure than to sit in on an elder sibling’s lesson? Keep in mind however, that I am not a babysitting service; I do require that a parent be present with the younger child as my attention will be on the older child taking the lesson. I have taught young children for years and am unfazed by any noise or distractions from them and usually, older siblings are used to it too.
