2020 Holiday & Teacher Training Schedule

Playing For Keeps Piano Studio operates on a modified year round schedule. We observe several major holidays, 1 teacher training week, and a light schedule during the summer.  

The flat-rate monthly tuition takes into consideration that all students will receive 42 weekly lessons or other learning opportunities within the calendar year, regardless of what day of the week their lesson is held. Some months will contain 3, 4, or 5 lessons but tuition will not fluctuate month to month.

We also host 2 studio-wide Piano Parties (recitals) per year, dates/locations to be announced. There is no additional fee to participate in a Piano Party. However, during the week of a Piano Party, the performance is considered your lesson for that week.

Starting in 2019, the Teacher Training Week will be a floating schedule determined by each individual instructor as Simply Music now offers several conferences throughout the year.

To maximize the value of your tuition, consistent lesson attendance and participation at all Piano Parties and other learning opportunities is highly encouraged.
