***Lessons available at piano studio in Lilydale or, depending on teacher availability, at the convenience of your own home for a small additional cost. Lessons are by appointment only. Please call 0423 491 790 to reserve a time.
Students are required to attend regular lessons during school terms, and extra tuition is available during school holidays if desired. Felicity will notify you immediately if there are any changes in availability.
Due to a hectic teaching schedule, Felicity cannot accommodate free trial lessons, but you are welcome to try out a lesson with her before deciding to continue ahead as a student.
Although you are not locked into a term, if you do decide to discontinue lessons with Felicity, a courtesy notice of at least 2 weeks is requested so that she may find another student to fill your time slot.
24 hours notice is required for the cancellation of any lesson, otherwise the full cost of the lesson is incurred as a cancellation fee. However, in the case of an emergency or serious illness and dependent on teacher availability, you may reschedule to another time during the week and the cancellation fee will not be applied.
For lessons at students' homes, if a lesson is cancelled without 24 hours notice and the teacher is already on the way to the student's home or arrived at the door, the cancellation fee will be applied.
The reason behind the cancellation fee is that it guarantees sufficient time for Felicity to make arrangements with another student and his/her parent to fill in that available time slot.
Frequent, mindful practice is essential in order to develop your abilities at the piano and in turn helps maintain enthusiasm for the instrument. For very young students, it is highly recommended that parents sit in and observe their child's lessons so that they may provide emotional support and further assistance with practice at home. Felicity can advise you in terms of how much practice is required, important practice milestones for the week and the types of practice techniques that would be most effective in achieving these milestones.
Lessons may be scheduled on Mon, Tues, Thurs and Fri at 2.00 - 9.00pm and Sat at 9.00 - 6.00pm. The studio is not open on Wednesdays or Sundays.
