Mission Statement:

The purpose of the NEPTA Mentoring Program is to give NEPTA members the opportunity to broaden their teaching experience through observation of and discussion with experienced master teachers, to give master teachers the opportunity of passing on their teaching legacies and to establish close collegial relationships between NEPTA members.

Mentee responsibilities:
  • As a NEPTA member and Mentee you are bound to adhere to NEPTA’s Code of Ethics.  (See Code of Ethics on website.)
  • It is the Mentor’s responsibility to supervise their piano students at all times. The Mentee will not be left alone with the student, in person or online.
  • The Mentee will not interfere in the piano lessons.  Any questions should be addressed before or after the lesson at the Mentor’s convenience.
  • The Mentee will not teach the Mentor’s students at any time while they are a Mentee.
  • The Mentee takes full responsibility for maintaining the confidential and private nature of all records and information about the students and their families who are participating in the NEPTA Mentoring Program.  Full names and contact information of students will not be given to the Mentee.
  • The comfort of the student is the highest priority at all times.  If the student does not want to be observed during a lesson, the Mentee will be asked not to observe that particular student.
  • When observing online, Mentee will be muted and visible onscreen at all times.
  • The Mentee agrees to be alone in their room. No one other than the Mentee will be observing.
  • You, the Mentee, need to honor requests made by the Mentor.  For example: the Mentor may request a certain dress code, that you be punctual, and that you notify your Mentor if you cannot observe lessons as planned.
  • Any documents the Mentee signs will become, and remain, part of the NEPTA Mentoring Program files.

 If you are interested in becoming a Mentee, please fill out the Mentee Application.

After your application is reviewed you will be notified by the committee and will be assigned an Advisor (a NEPTA Mentoring Program Committee member.) You may request a specific Mentor from the Mentor list. You will need to sign the Confidentiality Agreement. At the end of the mentoring period, you need to fill out the Evaluation form.

 Thank you for your interest in becoming a Mentee!
