Piano Lessons in Westminster | Finksburg | Carroll County
Mrs. Sayre has been teaching piano for 30 years. Her students learn piano technique, music theory, and music history. They enjoy a wide variety of styles including jazz, salsa, improv with chords, popular......but always focusing on the classics.....the classics are the basis for anything else you want to play.
Lesson Times Available
Lessons are given during the week with times available during the morning, afternoon, and evening. Therefore, we can accommodate most scheduling needs. Lessons are not given on weekends. Lessons are private (no group lessons) and are for 30 minutes. Students are given off for the summer.
Lesson Fees are paid monthly in the amount of $92 ($23 per lesson). This is for four lessons. Mrs. Sayre does not teach on the 29th, 30th, or 31st of the month. One of those days is for make-ups. She provides all of the books needed so that the student has them right when needed. We keep a large supply in the studio. The cost of the books will appear on the student's bill at the end of the month.
The books she uses for theory and history count for 1/2 credit each. Ms. Sayre homeschooled her youngest child for several years and is familiar with the process.
All students are expected to come to their lessons well prepared and practiced. Suggested practice times are suggested relative the student's level.
"Music is my life. It is my breath, my passion. More than notes on a page and the 88 keys used to play them, I desire to teach my students to play well and from the heart for their own joy and to touch others."
