We have recently changed from a semester based program to a monthly based program. Our lessons run $26.00 a half hour ($104.00 a month) for all instruments and instructors. For your convenience lessons are electronically billed ($104.00 a month) on or about the 5th of every month, set this up during registration and never worry about it again. Regardless of how many weeks are in a given month the student will always receive 4 lessons, sometimes 5. This 5th lesson is where students catch up on any lessons that are missed either by the student, the teacher, or canceled due to inclement weather.
Parental support is a must for the child's musical growth. Show an interest and enthusiasm for his or her musical accomplishments; make sure the student has good instrument and keep it in good repair; uninterrupted practice time; and help, interest and support from you. Young students especially need help with their practice.
Daily practice is essential. Establish the length of practice and practice habits with your teacher and parents. Set aside regular times to practice and follow this schedule. Fulfill any special assignments given by the teacher. Arrive prepared and on time. with all necessary books and materials. If requested by the teacher the student should fill out and hand in practice sheets.
Our professionally trained, expert teachers are always available to discuss lessons. The teacher sets definite goals, both long term and short term, and has the responsibility to provide the student a positive atmosphere for learning. Our teachers continue to furthur their teaching skills by attending workshops, educational programs and engaging in activities leading to professional growth.
