All lessons are taught in my home at 189 Wilton Road in Greenfield Center, NY - Just 5 miles from downtown Saratoga Springs. Parents and sibs can wait on a comfy couch or at the kitchen table (and get started on their homework!) It's a pet-free, sniffle-free home.
A shorter session is usually best for children from six to eleven.
You'd be surprised how quickly an hour can fly by! Nearly every student from 8th grade and up will find themselves wanting a full hour in order to complete tasks and outline future goals.
This is an hour and then some... When you want to just dig in and cover some real ground, this is the lesson for you. Most working adults aren't able to attend as frequently as they'd like, so this healthy session will make up for the gaps! Power hour sessions last an hour and a half.
Lessons are to paid in advance at the top of a four-lesson cycle (which can span up to two months to offer you the best flexibility) with the exception of Power Hours which can be paid for on an individual basis.
Please be considerate about cancellations (other than true emergencies); contact me 24 hours in advance. I will makeup the lesson within the week as my schedule allows.
Since I provide a variety of printed material, there's a small upfront fee to cover my costs, and then the NYMPT binder is yours to keep forever! We'll add material to it as lessons progress. And you'll have fun revisiting it through the years. You may even want add to it on your own. Wouldn't that be nice?

If there's a song you wish to learn that I don't have in my library, we can purchase the music from an online vendor, and I will print the music in my home office.
Please visit my good friends at Saratoga Guitar. If you find a keyboard you like elsewhere, they'll match the price and order it for you. And you'll be supporting a local business! Find Saratoga Guitar here.
Not all people wish to play in front of an audience. But it is a wonderful learning experience, especially if you really want to step up your game. Those who'd like to perform will join me at The Studio in Greenfield for an informal salon-style recital near the end of the academic year. Those who'd rather not play are encouraged to join the audience and show their support. See? I'm definitely not your mother's piano teacher.
