Note: Chess and Taekwondo runs both sessions (you do not have to register this session)

Dr. Tio has been teaching Sacred Heart students for several years and this fall we are happy to have her back teaching on campus. She will be offering weekly piano lessons on Thursdays and Fridays. Dr. Tio uses the Suzuki method of teaching which is described below. A mandatory Parent Orientation for all new piano students will be scheduled for late September. Early Bird Fee: $250 for 30- minute lessons Early Bird Fee: $330 for 45-minute lessons Original Fee: $263 for 30-minute lessons Original Fee: $347 for 45-minute lessons Dates: Thursdays, November 1 - December 13 (5 weeks) Time: (30 or 45 minute lessons) Lessons are offered from 3:30-6:00pm To find out about open time slots contact Brenda Asare or Christine Tio (Chr_tio@yahoo.com) Suzuki Method: The Suzuki method is by far the most effective approach for nurturing and developing the musical ability of a child from a very young age. Based on Suzuki's "mother language" philosophy, very young children learn to play the piano through their senses after listening to recordings and observing how other children learn. A cooperative relationship between teacher, parent and student is essential for a successful learning process. A parent is expected to be present at the child's lesson and receive training as a practice partner to the child. As a result, Suzuki parents and children are often known to build strong parent-child bonds which would be treasured for a lifetime.

Piano Lessons with Dr. Christina Tio Dr. Tio has been teaching Sacred Heart students for several years and this fall we are happy to have her back teaching on campus. She will be offering weekly piano lessons on Thursdays and Fridays. Dr. Tio uses the Suzuki method of teaching which is described below. A mandatory Parent Orientation for all new piano students will be scheduled for late September. Early Bird Fee: $250 for 30- minute lessons Early Bird Fee: $330 for 45-minute lessons Original Fee: $263 for 30-minute lessons Original Fee: $347 for 45-minute lessons Dates: Fridays, November 2 – December 14 (5 weeks) Time: (30 or 45 minute lessons) Lessons are offered from 3:30-6:00pm To find out about open time slots contact Brenda Asare or Christine Tio (Chr_tio@yahoo.com) Suzuki Method: The Suzuki method is by far the most effective approach for nurturing and developing the musical ability of a child from a very young age. Based on Suzuki's "mother language" philosophy, very young children learn to play the piano through their senses after listening to recordings and observing how other children learn. A cooperative relationship between teacher, parent and student is essential for a successful learning process. A parent is expected to be present at the child's lesson and receive training as a practice partner to the child. As a result, Suzuki parents and children are often known to build strong parent-child bonds which would be treasured for a lifetime.

Payment Policy for Music Lessons
