4: Adult Lessons / Studio Policies & Costs

"Come friends, it's not too late to seek a newer world - to strive, to seek,         to find but not to yield."        -- from "Ulysses"  by Lord Tennyson

       Or, in other words - "Come on, let's try it! You really can teach                             an old dog new tricks."  -- S.R.
Always wanted to learn how to play the piano? Parents made you take lessons years ago and now you want to try it again? Many adults, in their college years and beyond, decide to study piano and do so with great success. Adult piano lessons provide a wonderful way to relieve stress, learn a new skill or refresh an old one without the pressure of recitals, exams or grades. Making music helps all of us stay young in mind and heart. It's fun, personally satisfying and adds much to the enjoyment of life.
Piano lessons for beginning to early advanced level adult students are once per week for 30, 45 or 60 minutes. Day and evening lesson times are available year round, Monday - Saturday. The lesson schedule is flexible to allow for work, travel, vacations and family activities. All lessons are private and take place in the Sharon Renkes Piano Studio, located in the Clintonville area of Columbus, Ohio. Free on-street parking and Wi-Fi are available.  Acoustic and digital pianos plus rhythm instruments and music themed manipulatives are used during  lessons by all students as needed.

The teaching atmosphere is calm, quiet, patient and joyful. Lesson content is age appropriate with specific teaching material chosen for each adult student based on unique learning styles, goals and needs. Music of the Classics, Broadway, Big Band, Ragtime, Sacred Worship and more are used to teach proper piano posture and gestures, body mechanics, note and rhythm reading, scales and harmony, playing from lead sheets, beginning composition and basic music history.

Daily home practice, 5-7 days/week for 30-60 minutes daily will bring you to your next lesson prepared for progress. All students must have an instrument in good working order in their home for daily practice between lessons - - either a tuned, acoustic piano or a digital piano with 88 full sized weighted keys, on legs or  X-stand, a sustain (damper) pedal, a keyboard bench and power cord.  Sharon can refer you to several local music instrument and piano retail centers if you wish to buy or rent a new or used acoustic or digital piano. Acoustic pianos do require professional tuning 1-2 times per year. Budget at least $100-$150 per tuning, payable to a Piano Tuner Technician of your choice.

Adult Student Billing for Tuition, Fees, Music: Monthly tuition is calculated at the per lesson rate.  Payment for the total number of lessons you plan to attend that month is due by or on the first lesson of each month.          $30 / 30 minute lesson
                       $45 / 45 minute lesson
                       $60/ 60 minute lesson 
There will be a one time Registration Fee of $50 added to your first billing. Costs for new music will be added to the monthly billing statement as needed. No refunds will be given if a student withdraws from lessons and leaves the studio.

Payment Policy: You may pay with Cash, your Zelle account, Personal Check, your banks BillPay service and your debit/credit card. (Visa, Master Card, Discover, American Express.)
Please Note: If your Zelle E-Payment or your banks' mailed BillPay check does not arrive by or on the first lesson of the month you will be asked to please contact your bank. Electronic payments are not foolproof and checks do get lost in the mail.

Cancelation Policies: Lessons canceled by the teacher will be credited to the student's account if a rescheduled lesson cannot be arranged.
Lessons canceled by the adult student can often be rescheduled if the studio is notified in advance.  No account credit will be given.
