 Studio Policies:


Supply List
*Three Ring Binder for voice lessons
(Preferably no sheet protectors)
*Piano Books for piano lessons
*Loose Leaf Paper for taking notes
*A recording device, if you wish to record your lesson


Student Responsibility
Practicing:
  Students may use recordings from previous lessons with which to practice. 
Students should practice with vocal exercise tracks as well as accompaniment MP3 daily.
Ideally, students should practice 5 days a week, for 30 minutes.  If you find this difficult,

try breaking this into two 15 minute sessions or three 10 minute sessions.  Ultimately,
it is more beneficial to practice a little bit every day rather than one a week for 2 hours.

Lesson Preparedness:  Students should bring their Music Binders or Lesson Books and other
supplies to each lesson.  They should have any new music assigned to them the previous week
neatly placed in their binder.

Recitals
Studio recitals are held around April/May and November/December of every year. 
Recitals are free of charge and open to any family and friends students wish to invite.
There is no additional fee to participate in this growth opportunity.
The masterclass preceding the recital will be used as a rehearsal.

Extenuating Circumstances
(i.e. Illness, Weather, Forgetfulness)

Same day notices may be made up at the next masterclass.
Please see the website "Calendar" page for masterclass dates.

Each student is allowed ONE make up lesson per trimester. 
Those students with perfect attendance may consider the masterclasses as bonus learning times.

In case of in-climate weather, the student may choose to have their lesson via Skype or Facetime at their regularly scheduled time,

or they may choose to make up the lesson at the current trimester's masterclass.

The instructor is allowed one sick day per year. That lesson will not be rescheduled or made up.
Lessons missed by the instructor for any other reason will be made up at a mutually convenient time.

A 30 day notice is required for students to relinquish their lesson time.
Thank you for understanding the business side of my studio.
