DURATION: Piano and Voice lessons are 50 minutes long. Very young children can take shorter lessons, and I offer longer time slots for coachings and special projects.
PAYMENT: Regular weekly students must pay the entire month's tuition, which is due on the first lesson of the month. You will receive an invoice at the end of the prior month. All other students pay at the lesson. Checks, cash, Venmo or PayPal (with a 3% fee added) are all accepted.
CANCELLATION: I require at least 24 hours notice, or the student/parent is responsible to pay for the entire lesson.
ILLNESS: If the student is very ill, please don't come. I will make up the lesson, or we can have the lesson via SKYPE.
LATENESS: It it important that you be on time for each lesson, as I cannot make up any missed time due to lateness. If you are running more than 5 minutes late, please let me know via text what your estimated time is.
MATERIALS: Singers are required to bring some kind of recording device (iPhone works great) to record each lesson to practice with and a binder or folder to hold music and our lesson notes. Instrumentalists should have a folder or binder to put lesson notes and music in.
COMMUNICATION: I love teaching and making music with people. It is truly a passion that I have. I have an open door policy and will happily address any questions or concerns that might come up. Please feel free to ask questions at any, either during our lesson time or via phone or email. My goal is to help you be the best musician that you can be! Parents of children/teens will receive periodic updates from me, so we can track progress and any other needs.
