Annisa Aprilia Music Studio

Lesson Policies.








There are so many important things parents can do to help their children have a rewarding and positive experience playing the instrument. Please constantly encourage your child and compliment him or her on the work accomplished. There is nothing better than praise to spur a child onto higher achievements. Ask them to play a piece that they learned rather than explain what they learned at a lesson. Maybe you can have a home recital for friends and/or family once a month.

Many students “compare notes” as to pieces learned, levels achieved, etc. Please discourage this or just explain that everyone is different and learns at a different pace. Very often a child will hit a plateau in their music development or get discouraged over a particularly hard piece of music. Reassure him/her that this happens to everyone and that it won’t be terrible if the piece is not “perfect” for the lesson and that the teacher will help with the problem. That’s what lessons are for!

Parents can further help in creating a good atmosphere for practicing by providing good lighting at the piano or music stand and making sure the room and area are free from other distractions. Also, by getting your child to lessons on time and picking up promptly, your child will know that you respect the work that they are doing.



If you have any questions or wish to discuss your child's lessons with me, please don't hesitate to call. I try to keep in touch with you too, to keep you updated on your child's progress and any special needs that she or he might have.
