Summer Lessons Are Now Being Scheduled

How did May get here so quickly?  School will be out soon and vacation is just around the corner.  That means it is time to start thinking about your summer lesson plans. 


Piano, Voice and Oboe lessons at Brunner Studios run year round.  Summer lessons have a slightly different policy.  As always lessons are paid for at the start of the month.  However, you will only need to pay for the lessons that you take.  I encourage my students to stay on an as normal schedule as possible, but I know there are lots of extracurricular activities in the summer.  Lesson times are available in the morning as well as the evening.


Brunner Studios has lesson availability but the time slots are going quickly.  Call or email now to set up your summer lesson schedule. 

Summer Piano, Oboe and Voice Lessons

It’s not summer yet!  However, I am starting to get questions about how summer lessons will work and if Brunner Studios offers summer lessons.  The answer is yes, Brunner Studios will be offering lessons this summer.

Here’s how it works.  I will pick 2 or 3 days to begin with to offer lessons.  Those days will need to be semi-full before I expand the schedule.  Lessons can be scheduled starting at 10:00 in the morning.  In fact, I highly encourage students to take an early lesson if possible.

How many lessons do I need to take or what if I go out of town?  If the student is in town, I expect them to be at lessons.  If you are out of town, there isn’t much that can be done about that.  Tuition will be figured on a monthly basis and will be due at the first lesson of the month.  No refunds will be given for scheduled lessons that are missed. 

If you need to change a lesson to a different day, during the same week, on which lessons are offered, then if there is time this accommodation will be made.  If a student misses a lesson without contacting me first, the lesson will not be made up at all.

Summer scheduling will begin May 1 and summer lessons will begin June 11.  Students who take at least 8 lessons will be given first choice of fall lesson times.  After that scheduling will be open to all students on an even basis.

Summer is a great time to try out lessons before committing to a regular schedule in the fall.  Establish good practice habits and be ready to continue them when school starts back in the fall.
