Welcome to the Piano Parent Portal!

This page is dedicated to everyone enrolled in my studio, including my teen and adult students, in addition to piano parents. If you’re not yet a member of the studio, please make sure to also stop by my Piano Lessons page.

I update this page and the links referenced periodically. Let me know if there is anything I can do to make this page better. Enjoy!

MyMusicStaff Access

You can register for in-person and online lessons using this tool. When choosing a lesson slot, please look at the icon: If the icon is a church, that is an in-person lesson at Central Methodist. That can be converted to an online lesson if necessary. If the icon is a camera, that is an online lesson run from my home. That cannot be converted into an in-person lesson.

Studio Policy

The current policy replaces this superseded policy from January 2023.

Lesson Rates – Effective Fall 2023

Lessons for school-aged, full-semester students, are priced by a monthly rate that follows the fall or spring semester tuition plan. The price for all other students, including those who begin after the beginning of the semester, is calculated from the base rate listed. Rates for all lessons follow:

  • 30 minutes: $115/month, $32.50 base rate
  • 45 minutes: $165/month, $46.50 base rate
  • 60 minutes: $218/month, $61.50 base rate

An annual registration fee of $60 applies to school-aged, full-semester students, including adults who follow the semester model. This fee is waived for students who take at least four summer lessons prior to the program year. This rate decreases at fixed intervals for students who begin after the start of the program year.

Semesters and Summer Term

  • Spring Semester – Early January through Mid-May
  • Summer Term – Late May through Early August
  • Fall Semester – Mid-August through Late December

My policy discusses how each semester works. Made simple, the fall and spring semesters are fixed blocks of lessons with monthly tuition. The summer term is more flexible; it accommodates summer camps, family vacations, and the need for downtime.

Piano Teaching Posts

I’ve done major rework to my Practice Corner posts so that they now form my core of advice to all piano parents. I invite you to take a look, since I know you will find something useful for you!

Give Feedback

I’ve set up a separate page for this that you can access by clicking below. It could be a conversation you want to have or something that might help me in my teaching. It could be to offer a testimonial or review. Whatever it is, I’m always grateful for feedback, because teaching is a never-ending learning experience.
