Class Information - LEVEL I:  (TRUE BEGINNERS)
LONG ISLAND PIANO LESSONS IS A COMPANY which provides both piano lessons and entertainment.

We travel to clients' homes in both Eastern Nassau and Western Suffolk counties. In addition, the 1st lesson and set of books are free to all new students

LONG ISLAND PIANO LESSONS is fully geared to the Piano. We give Piano Lessons right in the student's home. 

We feel the best place to be taught Piano is in the student's home because the student can practice and learn on the same instrument.

These lessons are convenient for parents and comfortable for students.

Most lessons run 30 minutes for beginners, but the lesson time can increase as the student progresses to either 45 minutes or up to 1 hour.  Scales are taught with each lesson.

The lessons can also be arranged in a time period that does not conflict with a busy schedule for either parents with children, children or adults. 

THESE LESSONS ARE GIVEN AT REASONABLE RATES. See our Piano Lessons page on Piano Levels of Class. 

THE FOLLOWING POLICIES: For those wishing to take piano lessons are:

A 24 hour notice must be given for any cancellations or the student(s) will be charged for a full lesson.

 Payments will be made at the end of each lesson or if a weekly or monthly payment plan has been established (weekly or monthly plans are prepaid in advance of the class).

Student's range in all different levels. We have created the following levels based on the experiences of our students.
