Most teachers give 30 minute lessons. I don't feel that is enough time to make optimum progress, so I schedule at least 40 minutes (33% more) for each lesson. Also included is "Performance Saturday" every two months. This is an informal recital on my Steinway grand, with the purpose of attaining familiarity and comfort in playing for others.
Tuition is based on a 4-month trimester, and can be paid monthly or in full with a discount. 15 to 17 lessons are included (plus free extra lessons for highly motivated students**), along with two optional Saturday performance sessions. One recital is held annually and several opportunities for competition are included for those interested. (Every competition has their own fees, of course.)

Assistance is available for deserving students who cannot afford tuition. This is for students who show distinctive talent or achievement and is solely at my discretion.
** Extra lessons are designed for students who merit them by putting in extra work to make extra progress. Most students will receive 15 to 17 lessons.
