Make-up Lessons

We do not schedule make-up lessons, however we have two great options if you aren’t able to make your lesson in person (online or video)!

5 Steps for a successful Online Lesson

App or Program?

Communicate IN ADVANCE, directly with your teacher about which platform you will use: FaceTime or Zoom.

Be Ready!

Set up 5 minutes before your lesson start time. This means:

  • Use the bathroom
  • Make sure all of your materials are ready and in front of you
  • Bring a pencil, and maybe a few markers or highlighters to mark your music at your teacher’s request
Camera Angle

This should be the view a teacher has from their standpoint during in-person lessons. This means the camera may need to be propped up, so that the teacher can see your face AND your hands in the camera’s view.


Wait for your teacher to call you–they may be a minute or two behind, so please be a little patient!


Please update your assignment sheet in preparation for the next lesson.

3 Steps for a Successful Video Lesson

Videos need to be in your teachers inbox PRIOR to your regular lesson time. Your teacher is utilizing your REGULR LESSON TIME, not adding to his/her personal schedule. If you do not have your videos uploaded at the time of your lesson and shared with your teacher, we cannot guarantee you will receive lesson feedback and an updated assignment.


Record your assignment videos and upload to Vimeo or YouTube.

Send the links to your teacher

Send the links to your teacher via Email, or in your My Music Staff account. This needs to be done PRIOR to your scheduled lesson time. The point is your teacher will use your lesson time to view and provide feedback.

Check your email for teacher feedback

and/or written notes regarding your assignment and make any updates to your assignment sheet in your binder in preparation for the following lesson.

What They Say

Read testimonials from our satisfied students and parents

"There are so many things I appreciate about the Centre for Musical Minds but the best thing is the teachers. I can’t recommend them more highly for students new to piano as well as for adult students that may have previous experience."



I have been taking piano lessons at CMM for 10 years now and it’s the best decision I could have made. My piano skills have improved immensely and so has my confidence; I’m even playing in front of people now and I never thought that would happen. Thank you to CMM for giving me the tools to play at my very best.



“My son Jayden started going to CMM when he was 7, fast forward he just turned 13 and is still going. The center owned by Ms. Kristin offers no less than the best learning experiences for the students from fun recitals, holidays gigs and playing at senior centers.”
