The studio runs at full capacity. There are not extra time slots kept open just for makeups. So any slots available for makeups can only be created when someone cancels their lesson with advance notice.
Eligibility for a makeup requires a minimum 24-hour notice of cancellation. Short-notice cancellations and no-shows are not eligible for makeups.
Makeup must be scheduled within 30 days of the missed lesson.
Lessons missed on Studio Holidays are not made up or rescheduled.

GRAND PIANOS & UPRIGHT PIANOS
Small, cheap keyboards are NOT at all suitable for private piano study and are really just toys!These are the features an electric piano keyboard MUST have to be suitable for private piano study:
• 88 keys
• weighted keys
• hammer action keys
• touch sensitive keys
• foot pedal
• keyboard stand (furniture cabinet type OR the X style for portable keyboards)MY RECOMMENDATION: A suitable, inexpensive electric piano to start with is the DONNER DDP-90 ($570).
Once a year (usually in April), this studio presents a STUDENT RECITAL in which students dress up and perform a memorized song for an audience of their family, friends, and peers.The date, time, and location for the next recital will be announced when it is confirmed.
