Effective 1/09/23: Metro Gnome lessons and group classes will be held in person. Masks are now optional for each family, however I/my family will remain masked during lessons. Families may continue to choose for private lessons to be conducted over Zoom to minimize risk if preferred. For all Group Classes, please continue to wear masks.
I will continue to follow and observe CDC/MA State/Town of Arlington recommendations closely and will communicate any changes to this plan to keep our studio community as safe as possible.
Our piano program includes two components: Private lessons and Group Classes.
Private lessons are weekly individual, personalized lesson time between the student, teacher and parent.
Group classes are led by the instructor. During class, we focus on playing Suzuki repertoire with all budding pianists in the studio. Group class provides peer interaction/encouragement, strengthens musical concepts and sharpens musicianship. They are part of the complete Suzuki curriculum. Classes are scheduled on Friday evenings. They may be all ages or assigned by Suzuki book levels depending on semester enrollment.
Expected Time Commitment
* Weekly Lessons: 30min, 45min or 60min
* Friday Group Class: Average of 2-3 Fridays per month.
* Minimum of four recitals per academic year: two during Friday Group time, two on Saturday mornings/early afternoons. Friday rehearsals before Saturday recitals are mandatory.
