Piano Lessons – Summer Policies

As we enter the last 6 weeks of the 2016 – 2017 school year, it is a good time to review summer piano lessons and lesson policies. As is stated in the Studio Policy Statement, the Aine Wendler Piano Studio is a year-round studio and each monthly tuition installment is not a payment for lessons in that month, but an installment on the total tuition for a 40-lesson year. I wish I could teach just for the fun of it, and afford losses of hundreds of dollars per month, but, I cannot. Therefore, it is the policy of this studio that I cannot reserve lesson times for unpaid time slots. Families not...

From the Studio, With Heartfelt Gratitude

It is with heartfelt gratitude that I am writing this studio entry. I was deeply moved by the presentations at each recital on December 4, 2016. I am so appreciative of the kindness and generosity I received from the families of this studio. I want you to know that, because of you, every cent of the recital hall rental was covered. Not only for the recital on December 4 but, additionally, for the recital that is scheduled for Sunday, April 2, 2017. There is a substantial amount remaining to go toward next December’s recital. It is difficult to adequately express how thankful David and I feel...

Fall Schedule

Fall Schedule

It is hard to believe that we are more than halfway through the summer, already. As the new studio year approaches, it is time to start working on the fall schedule. I know that, for many students, it is difficult to project scheduling needs but, there are many students to fit into the studio schedule and times are, very much, at a premium. My studio cannot, really, be much more flexible than the team sports organizations and schools of dance and gymnastics can be. My suggestion is that, if at all possible, families keep the same time slot(s) from the previous year. If that is not possible...

As we are rapidly approaching the end of the 2015 – 2016 school year, it is time to look at some studio summer information and recap the school year nearly over.

Kicking Off the 2015-2016 Studio Year

With the Labor Day holiday now finished, the Aine Wendler Piano Studio is kicking off the 2015-2016 studio year. I can feel that this is going to be a busy, productive year. My goal is that my students and I will work together to achieve the goals we have set and will, hopefully, have some fun along the way!!! The first item I would like to mention is that our Winter Recital is Saturday, December 5, 2015. It will be held at the Schmitt Music Recital Hall at Rosana Square in Overland Park, Kansas. There will be two recitals that day. Recital A will begin at 1:45 pm and Recital B will begin at...
