Basic Practice Guidelines

We made a view-only Student Folder in Google Drives for you. To receive change alerts in Chrome, click here.

We suggest finding a daily practice time at home in a quiet, distraction-free area. Even just a few minutes or more of daily practice, is often enough to see progress. Parents should supervise children during their practice time, especially during their first year of study.  

Lesson Book Ordering

We’ve made it easy to order the books you need for your lessons. Ask your teacher for your lesson books “red number”, and visit our Lesson Book Ordering Page to easily find exactly the one you need, and have it delivered through Amazon!

In Person Lessons:

  • In person lesson availability may change during the pandemic depending on provincial requirements.
