Parents

Parents are welcome to attend the child’s lessons. We request that parents remain quiet during the lessons. If parents prefer to wait in the lobby during the lessons we ask that they be on time to meet their child when the lesson is over. The School of Music and Dance cannot provide supervision for your child.


Tuition

Tuition is due at the time of registration. Tuition is currently $180.00 and includes ten lessons during the 10-week term. Students must buy their own music and bring all music and materials to each lesson.


Lesson Policy

If the student cannot attend the lesson please give us notice within 24 hours of the scheduled lesson time. One lesson per term may be rescheduled. Any lesson missed by the teacher will be rescheduled by the end of each term.


Video Recording Policy

The University of Oregon Piano Pedagogy Program is a teacher-training program. Our teachers are asked to video selected lessons in order to improve their teaching. These videos are for learning and evaluation only and will not be made public.
