Students are expected to have access to a piano at least 4 times a week. An acoustic piano is preferable
and should be equipped with a flat bench and good lighting. An electric keyboard is not recommended after
2 years of lessons.
Students need a 3-ring binder (1 inch or so) that is to be just for piano lessons.
Assignment pages (and other information) will be placed in it each week and there will be a place for recording
practice information. For young students this is making a check each time the piece is played. For older students
this is for recording the time spent practicing each piece.
A tote bag is recommended to keep the music books and binder in.
Experienced students need to own a metronome.
