This Piano Teacher Refused To Provide A Little Girl With Free Lessons After She Broke A Piano Key And Her Mom Wouldn’t Pay The $500 Repair Fee

“But at the same time, I knew that my time and services had value.”

That’s why the piano teacher ultimately decided to just be transparent– explaining to the little girl’s mother how they would love to help out her daughter for free. However, that just was not possible since they couldn’t afford it.

Afterward, the piano teacher decided to propose a different suggestion. They offered to provide the woman with either a payment plan or even a discount for her daughter’s future piano lessons. And at the time, the woman seemingly understood that payment for lessons was necessary and agreed to move forward with the piano teacher’s payment ideas.

Just a few weeks later, though, the teacher wound up finding out that the same woman started to spread nasty rumors– accusing them of being heartless and greedy. So, obviously, this realization really hurt the teacher’s feelings. And honestly, they just felt bad for the little girl for having to miss out on the piano lessons.

“Especially since she was so passionate about playing the piano,” the teacher said.

While they really wanted to help out the little girl, though, the piano teacher just had to be realistic about their own financial situation.

That’s why they wound up suggesting that the woman either look into other piano lesson options for her daughter or just work on saving up funds for future piano lessons. Ever since the little girl broke the piano and the piano teacher refused to provide her with free lessons, though, they’ve been left wondering whether that was the right way to handle the situation.

Do you think it was fair for the teacher to expect reimbursement for the broken piano key? Was the woman requesting free lessons after her daughter damaged the piano key an equal trade? Can you understand why the teacher refused to provide free lessons? How would you have dealt with this situation?
