    Progress reports are given throughout the school year. Parents are expected to also check weekly homework assignments.
  • Do you teach any instruments besides piano?
    Yes, but the other instruments are only taught in conjunction with our piano courses. Students must test into the other instruments for ages 6-10. They may start other instruments without testing at age 10. (Piano, Voice, Brass, Woodwind, Strings, Percussion)
  • As a parent how much am I involved?
    Parent attendance is required for students ages 2-6. For ages 7 and up, parents are encouraged to attend full classes periodically. Parents are expected to come into the class during the last 5 minutes to hear and receive homework, practice tips, and announcements.
  • During what hours is there someone in the building?
    Our staff is on site during school hours: Monday - Thursday, 2:30 pm to 8:30 pm and Saturday, 10:30 am to 2:30 pm. During that time, we are frequently teaching classes, so it is best to call or email to schedule an appointment if you would like to speak to someone directly. Summer hours are by appointment only.

  • Do I or my child need prior music experience to enroll?

  • I or my child have taken private lessons in the past; can they still enroll in the school?
    Yes, students who have previously taken private lessons will complete a music assessment to determine which education program would be best suited for them.

    Each course varies in duration ranging from 36 weeks to forever. We encourage lifelong music education, and it is our endeavor to help students progress in their music education throughout their lifetime.

  • How do students advance and complete the courses?
    Different courses have a certain number of books with varying degrees of difficulty in teaching music concepts and skills. Students are tested at the end of each book to determine if they advance. Generally, once a student has successfully tested out of each book, they graduate from the course.
  • What happens if a student is absent or misses a class?
    It is the parent’s responsibility to look up the homework when a student is absent. Parents may do so by logging into their parent portal on our website (musicschoolsptc.com), clicking on the student's class, then clicking on "notes". We do not provide automatic make-up classes as a general standard. The teacher will assess whether a make-up class is needed for a student. If make-up classes are requested, additional fees may apply.
  • Are siblings allowed in class?
    No, siblings are not allowed in class when in session. During class, siblings may sit quietly in the waiting room. Parents are responsible for monitoring and will need to stay with siblings if they are under 13. Exception: Infants under 1 year old can be in class; however if infants become restless or noisy, a parent must discretely move into the waiting room with them.
  • What if the time or day of my class no longer works for me?
    If the day or time of your regularly scheduled class no longer works for you or your family, please give us a call at (770) 691-2229 to discuss. We would love the opportunity to work with you to find a schedule that works for you and your family!
