Your First Lesson – FAQ

Where on Wisconsin Ave are you located? 
We are located between Q Street and Reservoir Road, on the second floor of the yellow building. We are above Vicky’s Nail Salon.

Should we buy a keyboard? If so, what do you recommend?
We suggest that if you are deciding to make a commitment to piano lessons that you should invest in a keyboard. This will help you or your child progress faster in lessons.  We suggest the Yamaha YPG-535 88-key portable grand Graded-Action USB Keyboard, the Yamaha P Series P35B 88-key Digital Piano (Black), the Yamaha P Series P105B 88-ky Digital Piano, the Yamaha YDP142R Arius Series Traditional Console Digital Piano, or the Yamaha Arius YDP-181 Electric Piano.

How does monthly the payment work? 
Through our scheduling and payment system, we can store your payment information.  With your payment information stored, our system can automatically charge your credit card each month on the 1st of the month.

Can we do a trial lesson to see if we will like it? 
Absolutely! The first lesson is at no obligation, if you don’t want to continue, it is at no cost to you.  If you do want to continue, we will include your first lesson in your first month’s payment.

Do you teach guitar?
Guitar is not included in our strings program.

Can you send a teacher to my home? 
Unfortunately, we cannot send teachers to student’s homes due to the fact that we are not insured to do so.

What’s the difference between Early Études and Études?
Early Études is our residency program at the World Bank C Building and Diplotots, Too. At Early Études, we offer piano lessons to young students during their regular school day.  Études is our studio in Georgetown where we teach piano, voice, and strings lessons to any student, child or adult.

Can I sit in on my child’s lesson? 
Absolutely! You can sit in on the whole lesson, just a portion, or you can sit in our lobby area where we have refreshments and magazines for you to enjoy. It’s up to you!

Can I stop by to see your facilities before signing up? 
Yes, you can stop by at anytime our Office Manager is in the office.  These hours are usually Monday – Friday 9am-5pm.
