Piano Lessons



Learning to play the piano can be a skill that adds joy all throughout one’s life. I know it has for mine! I learned as a child and have used it in countless ways since: playing for church, both hymns and modern praise music, accompanying classical singers, playing with my toddlers and adding beauty to weddings, and finally my own personal enjoyment of playing just for the fun of it.

What do I expect from you?

  • Payment and your presence (for lessons!) on time.

  • Commitment to practicing material the amount of time necessary to meet your weekly goals. We will discuss this for each individual student.

  • Bring a notebook, your music, and a willing, teachable spirit to each lesson!

What can you expect from me?

  • Patient guidance through your lesson books each week.

  • Helpful tools to practice well and grow a habit of excellence with each lesson.

  • Openness to your thoughts, insights, and questions.

Payment Information

  • The cost is $20 per 30 minute lesson.

  • Payment is monthly by the 1st lesson of each month for the number of lesson weeks in that month. For example, if your piano lessons are on Mondays and there are 4 Mondays that month, your check would be written for $80.

  • A $5 late fee will be added for payments received after the first lesson week of the month.

  • You are responsible for tuition for the entire month, even if you aren’t able to attend each lesson, because your payment secures the time slot for me to be available to you.

  • Please make checks payable to “Libby Porto”.

Make-up and Missed Lessons

  • I expect each student to be at each lesson. However, if an illness or emergency arises that makes you unable to attend, please provide me with as much notice as possible.

  • Make-up lessons are made whenever possible but cannot be guaranteed.

A Final Word

Please ask any questions you might have or allow me to address any concerns on your mind.

I truly love to teach and love to play. I hope that your lessons with me will give you the satisfaction of learning a beautiful skill and more enjoyment as you make the most of your gift of music.
