PRIVATE LESSON GUIDELINES,
FEES, AND SCHEDULES
Thank you for your interest in private music lessons!
PLEASE ADHERE TO THE FOLLOWING GUIDELINES:
ALL STUDENTS ARE TO RECORD TIME SPENT PRACTICING EACH DAY IN THEIR STUDENT ASSIGNMENT BOOK. PLEASE BRING THIS BOOK TO EVERY LESSON. IT IS JUST AS IMPORTANT AS YOUR OTHER BOOKS.
Students are strongly encouraged to practice every day, even if it is only for a brief period. This will allow them to progress at an even pace and to enjoy the full benefit of private lessons. Assignments made are expected to be accomplished at home within one week. If your student has the same assignment for multiple weeks, he/she may need to increase their practice time. PARENTS! PLEASE CHECK YOUR STUDENT'S ASSIGNMENT BOOK WEEKLY FOR NOTES FROM ME AS WELL AS TO TRACK THEIR PROGRESS. The date of the next lesson will be written on each page, including make-ups. Call if you anticipate a scheduling conflict.
A lesson time has been selected and set aside for each student. Lessons will begin and end on time. This will apply even if the student arrives late. Extending the lesson would infringe upon the time of another. Most lessons are 30 minutes; however, this may be increased in special circumstances as time allows.
Lessons should not be interrupted by other students or their parents. If there is a lesson in progress when the student arrives, he or she may enter the studio quietly and be seated.
PARENTS: PLEASE DO NOT BRING YOUR STUDENT EARLY AND/OR PICK THEM UP LATE. IF YOU ARE MORE THAN 5 MINUTES EARLY, PLEASE WAIT OUTSIDE OR IN THE WAITING AREA QUIETLY. SOME CHILDREN ARE NOT COMFORTABLE PLAYING WITH AN AUDIENCE, AND EVERYONE IS PAYING FOR A "PRIVATE" LESSON.
Parents are always welcome and encouraged to attend their child's lesson!
Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions or concerns.
PARKING IS AVAILABLE IN THE PUBLIC LOT BEHIND THE BUILDING, OR ON MAIN STREET. YOU MAY ACCESS THE STUDIO FROM EITHER AREA BY ENTERING THE MARKADE BUILDING.
PLEASE NOTIFY ME OF ANY ABSENCE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, EVEN IF IT IS AT THE LAST MINUTE. 704-677-2007 (CELL) TEXTING ME WORKS WELL!!!
When notified at least 24 hours in advance, a reasonable attempt will be made to reschedule the lesson.
Please keep your student home if he/she is sick. Call ASAP and I will reschedule the lesson.
Make-up lessons may be on scheduled make-up days or during other lesson slots as they become available. All make-up lessons shall occur BEFORE the semester ends. If you forget a make-up lesson it will not be rescheduled.
PLEASE REVIEW THE SCHEDULE BELOW CAREFULLY. We are not following any particular school calendar this year. PLEASE WRITE EACH LESSON DATE ON YOUR CALENDAR! If you have a Monday lesson which is scheduled on a holiday, and you will be away, we will reschedule your lesson for later that week. If your are in town, I do want you to come as scheduled, even if it is at a different time that day.
Missed lessons due to my cancellation will be rescheduled.
THERE WILL BE NO FEE ADJUSTMENT FOR LATE ARRIVALS/MISSED LESSONS. This includes make-up lessons.
Please give 30 days written notice if you must discontinue your lessons.
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!!!
