The Peterson Studio offers remote piano lessons for the following limited circumstances:

- Non scheduled studio closures

- Snow Days

PLEASE NOTE:  The Studio uses the Zoom platform.  Please make sure your email and cell number are updated in your student portal on my website so that you will receive your link without delay.

1) Try to limit how many other devices are being used during the lesson time

2) Try to eliminate background noise

3) Have the camera facing all the keys and the student's face if possible

4) The student should be ready with all books, materials and PENCIL

5) Try to be near your router and always work on the newest device possible

6) Make sure to check the box in Zoom settings that says “Enable Original Sound”  


- The studio DOES NOT CLOSE just because school closes.  Often the districts need to make decisions very early in the morning and by the time the afternoon comes, roads are clear. 

- I will be sure to contact you via email, Facebook, Instagram and there will be a notification on my website IF we are closed and transitioning to Zoom lessons.

- If there is an early dismissal and your child normally comes that day off the bus, DO NOT SEND THEM ON THE BUS.  We teach students all day so lessons cannot be moved up.

- In most all cases, we do offer Zoom lessons if the studio needs to close.  A link will be sent to the email you registered with on my website.  Please log in to your portal to review the email you have on file and update it if necessary.

- Please confirm that you received your link.  If we close in the morning and do not hear from you by 12:00 Noon we will assume you do NOT want a Zoom lesson that day and you will be marked absent and we will issue you a makeup credit.  If we make a decision to close later in the day we will need to hear from you by 3:00PM.

- Please note that group class members will have lessons in 20 minute increments and will be encouraged to practice after their lesson as they do in class.  

- Please be aware that lesson times might be moved around somewhat as it takes more time to teach on Zoom than it does at the studio.

- Please have your child ready to go with all books, pencils and materials ON TIME.  Set up the camera so that we can see the full keyboard.  Side angles are preferred.
