Although it is my policy to teach by semester, new students are welcome to join The Ivy Piano Studio at any time. Our first 30-minute lesson is free; after that, I usually suggest that we meet for 4 to 5 more weekly lessons ($30 per lesson) before deciding whether or not to continue together.
Enrollment in The Ivy Piano Studio includes:
  • Weekly individual piano lessons
  • Monthly group repertoire classes (music history & theory; performing for fellow students; meets monthly Sept - May)
  • Annual community service performances
  • Biannual studio recitals
  • Preparation for Royal Conservatory of Music Certificate Program examinations and/or Suzuki Piano School Book recitals 
For established students, tuition is $1320 per year, payment of which is divided across Fall, Winter, and Summer semesters. A $30 activity fee is also paid at the beginning of Fall and Winter semesters to cover expenses for group repertoire classes and recitals. Tuition for either Fall or Winter term may be split into two, half-term payments. In the Summer, students are required to schedule at least 6 lessons, which may be scheduled flexibly according to vacations, summer camps, etc. New students who start in the middle of a semester will have their semester fees pro-rated accordingly. Registration fees for RCM examinations not included.
