2024 Holiday & Teacher Training Schedule

Dancing Keys Music Studio operates on a year round schedule. We observe 7 major holidays plus 1 teacher training week within the calendar year for a total of 8 non-lesson weeks. There will be no classes during the entire week containing the holiday observance as scheduled below.

The flat-rate monthly tuition rate takes into consideration that all students will receive 44 weekly lessons within the calendar year, regardless of what day of the week their class is held.

We also host 2 studio-wide Piano Parties (recitals) per year, dates/locations to be announced. There is no additional fee to participate in the Piano Party. However, during the week of a Piano Party, the rehearsal & performance is considered your lesson for that week.

The Teacher Training Week will be a floating schedule determined by each individual instructor as Simply Music now offers several conferences throughout the year.

To maximize the value of your tuition, consistent class attendance and participation at all Piano Parties is highly encouraged.
