Q: What is the FREE CONSULTATION and how does it work?

A: We set up an appointment for a Zoom meeting in which you and I will discuss your background, interests, experience level, and ways that I can help you achieve your goals. You will also have the option to play something for me. This will give us a better idea of where we can start. We'll also discuss our lesson packages and pricing.

Q: How do lessons work?

A: Adult students usually take one hour lessons twice per month. This allows time to go over musical material throughly during the lesson and ample time for practice between lessons. Even when a student is extra busy and has limited practice time, the opportunity to review assignments during a subsequent lesson reinforces knowledge and confidence leading to better musical progress. 

Q: Where are you based? 

A: My piano studio is located in Hudson, MA, USA, where I currently teach online, reaching both local and international students.  Starting in September 2021 I will be open for in-person lessons as well.

Q: How much do lessons cost?

A: Since we have several lesson program options we discuss price at your free consultation. 

Q: What is your cancellation policy?

A: A minimum of 24 hours notice is required to reschedule a lesson. Please notify me by email at diana@mascaripiano.com. Rescheduled lessons are added as extra and do not substitute for previously scheduled lessons. No financial credit is given for any reason. This policy is necessary because  teaching music is my livelihood. As a professional, I prioritize scheduling, preparation and time for all of my students during the work week.

Q: What should I do if I need to discontinue my lessons?

A: Please notify me by email at diana@mascaripiano.com

Please note: Students are required to give ONE MONTH'S NOTICE if the student wishes to discontinue lessons (temporarily or permanently) for any reason.
