Student: The student’s responsibility is to practice properly and learn to play the piano.
Parent: The parent’s responsibility is to support the student and see to it that he/she practices.
Role of the Parents:
- Provide a good, well-tuned piano.
- Provide a piano bench of the correct height
- Getting the student to lessons on time.
- Paying tuition on time.
- Attending recitals and other activities at which parental attendance is expected.
- Asking the child to play regularly for the parents.
- Being supportive, interested and encouraging.
