2. Leaving for the summer? Here is how to proceed: First, inform your teacher when you plan on taking off and set an end date. The end of the month works best, though you can end mid-month and be prorated. Second, email our owner Candace Crawford directly at and CC your teacher, with both your end date and when you plan to start back. This is to ensure that you get priority scheduling over new students when summer is over. Third, receive a confirmation email from us and take a breath. You are all set! Please note, this process must be completed before the 1st of the month.

3. Are you having an issue with your teacher? Not sure if you have the right fit or is it a match made in heaven? Please let us know!  From teacher lateness or unavailability to happy young musicians who can’t put their instrument down, we are on your side. It is completely natural for a student to outgrow a teacher. If you ever have a concern, would like to switch teachers or have praises or complaints, please let us know. We are here for your child and want them to Spread the Music the best way they can in a supportive environment. We are all ears and will happily meet in person.

4. Have you ever wanted to learn how to play the piano yourself? Did you use to play piano years ago and want to blow the dust off? It’s time to start! Now offering informal drop-in piano lessons with our owner and Spreading the Music teachers. Time slots start at 11:00am-3:00 pm Monday-Friday starting May 15th. Discounts for new adult students! Check for updates on our website to sign-up. New students must sign up online or call to register for informal lessons.

We are here for you and your child. Student success is our highest priority.

That’s all for now! Thanks as always for Spreading the Music

and we will see you next time!
