Frequently asked questions


I want to start my son or daughter in keyboard lessons, should i buy a piano or keyboard?

Buying a keyboard is a great option if you plan on doing performances at events in the future. Buying a piano is a great option for students who are looking to study classical and jazz piano, as these genres include a lot of pedal usage. Another great option, which is a combination of piano and keyboard is a digital piano. Piano purchase would be dependant on the goals of the student. I personsally use a Roland Digital Piano F-140R for home practice and practice on an upright piano when I can.


do you need to buy piano books?

Yes! Books are essential. Books are needed at every lesson as a resource for music study. You will need 1-5 books at a time to learn the various skills instrumentalist need for performance. Topics covered include: Music Theory, Technical Requirements, Repertoire, Etudes & Sightreading. Plenty of methods to choose from: Alfred, RCM, Leila Fletcher & many more!


I would like to sign up for lessons, how do you take payments?

I take payments on my booking sites:

nikklatoya.simplybook.me

booking.page/en/company/page/nikklatoya

I accept Debit, Credit, Stripe and Paypal Methods. Payment must be made before the start of the lesson.

Yes! This is a way not only to document our transation and protect our agreement, but a way to keep it professional.

how do ONLINE KEYBOARD lessons work?

For Zoom lessons, you will need a webcam, smartphone, tablet or laptop, quality keyboard or piano and piano books. The piano lesson would take place in a Zoom call, so quality internet is essential to have also.


i need to terminate our keyboard lessons, how do I Do that?

No problem, please inform me before the end of the month, if you do not wish to continue lessons next month.


what is the first keyboard lesson about?

The first piano lesson would be about getting familiar with the level the student can play at, considering factors such as age, personality and goals. If the student is a complete beginner, then we would focus on keyboard georgraphy and getting familar with reading notes on the staff, determining which book we need for our next lesson.


How do the payments work?

Keyboard lesson payments can be made through nikklatoya.simplybook.me. Keyboard lessons need to be paid for before the start of the lesson. Music licensing and music commision products can be purchased through nikklatoya.simplybook.me and ko-fi.com/nikklatoya.


What is a music consultation?

This is a 45-60 minute consultation discussing music needs for your media project; discussing genre, tempo, instrumentation etc. This is where we get into more details about music liscening, copyright, royalties and the business administration aspect of music composition.


What do I need to start a music commision?

To prepare for your music commision, check out the commissions instructions at ko-fi.com/nikklatoya/commissions. Also check nikklatoya.simplybook.me for more details.


What is the refund policy for audio production and commisions?

If for some reason, I can't deliver the product that you need, I will reimburse you 100% refund. If you decide to pay a 50% downpayment for me to start a commision, and then you decide that you dont want the commision, that fee is non-refundable, but you will recieve 50% of the completed work.


I would like to book your band for my event, how can i book?

Book my band through nikklatoya.simplybook.me. Any special requests can be emailed to nikkklatoyaproductions@gmail.com.


i need to book your band for a last minute gig (Less than 2 months away), is this possible?

Yes! This is possible but because my band and I would be under tight time constrictions, there would be an extra $75 charge, on top of the hourly cover band fee.
