Policies and FAQ
We keep our rates competitive and affordable for families and individuals. Since exact rates depend on the length of lesson, number of students, in-home versus in-studio, and the day of the week, we'd be happy to give you a quote that reflects your situation and availability.
Payment is coordinated directly through Calgary Piano Expression's administrative staff. The standard rate for lessons includes travel time to all quadrants in Calgary and two free recitals a year for all students. If you live outside the city limits, please contact us to discuss possibilities.
Piano Lesson Schedule
Lessons mostly follow the Calgary Board of Education Calendar from September to June. Lessons in July and August are flexible to accommodate family and teacher vacations. Our 2019-2020 piano lesson calendar is here!
Location of Lessons
Our teachers will travel throughout Calgary to deliver in-home piano lessons. If you would prefer lessons in a teacher's studio, we can arrange that for you dependent on studio availability.
As soon as you contact us, we will communicate with you about your child's previous experience with music, your preferred days and times to receive lessons, and other standard information we will need to get started. In-home lessons are possible as long as you have a digital, upright, or grand piano. We will also discuss with you what books are necessary and assist you in locating them.
We host two yearly recitals (Winter and Spring) for all students at no extra charge. We believe performance opportunities foster community and inspire students of all ages. This will continue to be free for families ... always.
Exams and Competitions
If you would like your child to participate in the Calgary Performing Arts Festival or to complete an RCM exam, we can help! We have RCM certified teachers who know the competition and exam process and can help you or your child prepare and have a great experience!
