Piano lessons during the Lakeside school day are offered once a week, as either ½ period ($215.00) or whole period ($315.00) sessions each semester, either during a scheduled study hall, or during Band or Choir.
Students typically sign up for lessons at summer registration, which reserves a spot for 1st semester. Payments can be per semester or in monthly installments. Opportunities for performances are WSMA Solo & Ensemble, WMTA auditions, pre-concert performances, and a required recital in May.
