Frequently Asked Questions
What instruments and programs are offered at MEC?
MEC offers lessons on almost any instrument. Our staff is comprised of versatile instructors able to teach most instruments. We offer classes in general music and songwriting, student ensembles as well as Music Therapy.
What instrument do you recommend for someone who is young or inexperienced?
Most younger students will start out on the piano before graduating to other instruments. The basic nature of a piano is very simple to comprehend and achieve success very quickly. It also offers opportunities to work on fine motor skills that will be required to play more difficult string or wind instruments. It has been proven that if a student seriously studies piano for five or more years, they can more easily transpose that knowledge toward playing other instruments.
How long and how frequent are the lessons?
Beginning students should start with 30 minute weekly lessons. More mature students may start with either 30 or 45 minute weekly or bi-weekly lessons depending on experience and developmental readiness. Since lesson plans are tailored to each student, your teacher may recommend a longer lesson as the student improves, or multiple lessons within the same week.
Where does MEC operate?
MEC operates at the following locations:
1. Webster Studio - 635 Van Alstyne Rd - Webster, NY 14580
2. The Pieter's Family Life Center - (Satellite Location)
3. Teacher's individual location
4. Watertown Studio - 2 comfortable home locations

My child has lost interest and/or is not practicing. Should we take a break?
This is a common question. Due to the nature of our program, it is not imperative for every student to practice. Depending on their goals, it may be enough to meet with the instructor for their weekly visits.
Occasionally a child, for various reasons, is not willing to practice and it becomes a battle of wills. This is extremely common, and will happen in every budding musician’s life from time to time. These plateaus are important to work through. Please feel free to discuss practice strategies with your instructor.
What is the current tuition rate?
Current tuition rates and policies are listed here.
What types of payments are accepted?
MEC currently accepts recurring credit card payments only. Since tuition payments are the same each month, they are automatically drawn on the 1st of the month.
How often will I have to pay tuition?

Do I receive tuition credit if my child misses lessons?
