ANSWERS

  Q. At what age can my child start lessons?
  A. We recommend that your child is at least five years old. The attention span, interest and ability to focus play a big role. Add your desire to expose them to music at an early age, and that should help us determine their readiness.

  Q. How long and how frequent are the lessons?
  A. Beginners typically start with 30 minute weekly lessons. Since the lessons are designed around each student, as the student progresses, your teacher can suggest longer lessons.

  Q. I am not sure if my child will like taking music lessons. Do you offer an introductory lesson?
  A. Yes. We offer a first 30-min introductory lesson for just $35. If your child shows interest and does well you can reserve that lesson slot and register by paying a tuition for a month ahead, registration fee and cost of books.

  Q. Should I sit at lessons with my child?
  A. Most children feel more focused and have better lessons without you watching the lesson. The teacher however may ask you to stay for the first half of child’s first lesson just to give you an idea how lessons will be structured.

  Q. Do you have a waiting area?
  A. We have a great quiet waiting area with books and magazines for parents and drawing tables for siblings to enjoy.

  Q. How can I help my child practice and retain interest for lessons?
  A. Your child will enjoy lessons much more if he/she sets aside time at home for practicing. Not only practicing develops great time management and self-discipline skills but also gives a great sense of accomplishment! Some children love to practice and will spend a long time at the piano while others need more encouragement from parents. You can help your child by setting a certain time of the day (10-15mins for beginners or 30-60mins for intermediate or advanced students) which will be dedicated to practicing.

  Q. Do you offer recitals?
  A. Yes. We have two recitals per year, in late spring and early winter. They are highly recommended as a great goal to work towards.

  Q. What is your missed lesson policy?
  A. As a courtesy to your teacher, please notify Canton Music School in advance of any absence. However, it does not exempt the student from payment for the missed lesson. Students are charged for all lessons, including those missed through student absence/cancellation. Remember, we hold a specific time slot for you to the exclusion of other possible students. Canton Music School is under no obligation to give make-ups as a result of student absences but may do so if there is cancellation from another student.

  Q. What is a teacher misses a lesson?
  A. Occasionally, a teacher may miss a lesson due to an illness or family emergency. Whenever this happens, the school will arrange for a substitute teacher or will attempt to reschedule your lesson. We’ve found that many students actually enjoy an occasional lesson with another teacher.
