Students should bring a recording device, pencil, 1/2 or 1 inch binder, and any music that you'd like to work on. (Bringing music is NOT necessary. We have an extensive music library and can always find a song!)
Students are expected to practice 3-4 times per week, using the recorded lesson for that week. Students who practice will make QUICK progress. Students who do not practice will make SLOW progress. The choice is yours.
Students should NOT come to lessons with complete hoarseness, fever, vomiting, or within 24 hours of starting an antibiotic. Students MAY come to lessons with allergic or cold-like symptoms, including sore throat, congestion, cough, or partial hoarseness. Either of these scenarios (along with others not listed) are considered "sick", and are eligible for cancellation. (See policy below).
CANCELLATION POLICY - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY.
YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO SIGN A COPY OF THIS POLICY AT YOUR FIRST LESSON.
24 hours notice of cancellation is required or the session fee is due in full. Notice should be made via email only. Once the email is sent, a timestamp will verify the time of cancellation. An exception will be made for illness and emergencies, in which case the fee is due on the original session date, and that session will be happily rescheduled to the first available opening. Rescheduled lessons must occur within 30 days of the original missed lesson.
