*Three Ring Binder for voice lessons

*Piano Books for piano lessons
*Loose Leaf Paper for taking notes
*A recording device, if you wish to record your lesson
Practicing: Students may use recordings from previous lessons with which to practice.
Students should practice with their personalized voice exercise tracks as well as accompaniment MP3s daily.
Ideally, students should practice 5 days a week for 30 minutes each day.
If you find this difficult,try breaking it into two 15 minute sessions or three 10 minute sessions.
Ultimately,it is more beneficial to practice a little bit every day rather than once a week for an extended period of time.
Students should bring their Music Binders or Lesson Books and other supplies to each lesson.
They should also have any new music assigned to them
from the previous week's lesson
neatly placed in their binder.
Payment: Due at the first lesson of each month unless paying annually or per trimester.

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.
