IMPORTANT LESSON NOTES
Minimum practice time expected.
First year students: 15 minutes per day twice a day
5 days per week all other students 45 minutes per day
5 days a week.
Students are expected to put a check by the day if
they did the minimum practice in their music notebooks.
Practice time will be checked at the beginning of each
lesson. Only students who are willing to give the necessary
practice time each week in order to develop their music
talents should make the choice to study piano or voice
at this studio.
PURCHASE OF MUSIC
Purchase of music costs are over and above lesson fees.
The cost of the books will be checked with your first
and the total emailed. Please include this with your
regular lesson fee the next month. For most students,
cost of music per year does not usually exceed $60.00.
Missed lessons will be made up only if for excused
reasons. Including only:
1. Illness-one per semester
2 . Hazardous roads in winter
Please understand there can be no exceptions to this
rule. In order for the above reasons to be excused you
must call ahead of time! Otherwise, there will be no
make-up lesson and no fee adjustments.
Missed lesson times are used for another student’s
make up lesson, so each lesson half-hour is valuable
I understand that situations do arise so If you would
like to change your lesson time I will give all students
a list of the names and phone numbers of students so
that you may call and ask them if you may trade with
them for their lesson time. After you have set up your
lesson time trade with them then call or e-mail me with
this change for the week the day before your lesson.
Don't be embarassed since everyone will have to do this
at one time or another during the year.
If no one will switch lesson times with you then you
may make up your lesson during the designated times
so as not to forfeit the payment but ONLY if you call
or e-mail ahead to confirm before you miss your regular
lesson time. The designated make-up lesson time is Thursday
between 1:00-2:00 p.m. ONLY. I'm sorry but I cannot
make any exceptions to this rule as I have other weekly
UNEXCUSED LESSONS ARE MANY
Going out of town
Choosing another activity
Forgetting to come to the lesson
Insufficient practice time so I decided no use for coming
I forgot my books.
Under all un-excused reasons the lesson will be forfeited
meaning no make up lesson and no fee adjustment.
BEING LATE TO YOUR LESSON
If you are late to your specified lesson time then
you will not receive a longer lesson. The time you show
up for is how long your lesson will be since there are
others scheduled and all of their lesson times will
be thrown off.
The first time this happens the lesson will consist
sight-reading new material. If it happens more than
once the lesson will be treated as an unexcused lesson.
STUDENT LESSON TIME CHANGE
Since each student will receive a schedule of all other
students’ lesson times, lesson days, and telephone
numbers, students are responsible to work out their
own schedule conflicts by calling another student and
switching lesson days and times. (Feel free to call
students whether you do or do not know them. When all
is switched please notify me immediately with the schedule
change. This system will keep you from having unexcused
Because of a tight schedule and because of the need
to move quickly from on lesson period into the next
the following rules are a must.
1. Be prompt for your lesson
2. Wait in the hallway for your lesson period. When
you come into the building please do not come into the
room until your own session begins. Do not wonder around
in this building.
3. While waiting in the hallway, please be as quiet
as possible. If you must talk please whisper softly.
4. No extra people in the music room except by permission.
Parents are welcome to visit occasionally but not on
a regular basis. (Except when music instructor requests
your presence.) If a friend wants to visit your lesson
time please call ahead as well. When a parent, grandparent,
or friend visits your lessons period, they are to sit
quietly so that your lesson time can go on as usual.
5. Always, check hands before coming to lesson. If they
need washed, go to the restrooms and wash them before
6. Soiled shoes are to be left in the hallway.
7. Students, if you are waiting for a brother or sister
to take their lesson you may sit quietly in the hallway
and bring a book or a tech toy to play.
Thanks so much for your cooperation in following these
You’re going to do great!
