Fall Piano at Forte

Greetings Studio Family!  September marks the beginning of a new piano year and I'm excited to get started.  It's so nice to have you back to weekly meetings once again.  Please find some details below that you will need.


By now you have your lesson times settled and all the puzzle pieces fit.  

Please be in touch as we need to make adjustments.  


Please attend to the calendar noting the performance at Stone Ridge, group lesson weeks and days off. I will give you more details about your specific time & date for the group classes very soon.  In your email I have it in this format so that if you print it back to back you'll have one to cut out and put on your frig or another noticeable spot.

30-minute lessons paid monthly rate was raised $5.  This can be averted by paying the trimester payment (Sept, Oct, Nov) which hasn't changed at all.  

I appreciate Paypal, however, be aware that a 3% fee is added for that convenience.

To use checks **please make them out to Forte Piano Studio.** That's NEW FOR THIS YEAR


I enjoy lending out my books to add to your musical repertoire but sometimes those books don't get back on my shelves.  Would you please check in your pile of books if any that you have are mine and return at your next lesson!  No shame, I don't do a good job of keeping track, but I know they're expensive to replace.


Please note the attached policy.  All of this can be found on the website.    


If you are pleased with your lessons, would gladly make a recommendation, can speak of something you really like or that has been a nice change since you've been with me, would you consider jotting it down in a sentence or maximum two sentences to be added to the webpage.  For the ones that we add to the website, I will reduce your tuition by $10 for a testimonial and if you're willing to put your face next to it (it will be small), I'll discount it by $20.  


Congratulations on reading to the end!  This is a lot of information.  Please reply to verify your fall lesson slot and that you were able to access the other information attached to this email.  A simple "Got it" will be fine.  

That's plenty for now!!

Thanks much!
