Policies 2015

Congratulations on choosing to take private lessons to enhance your skills as a musician. In order to gain the most benefit from your lessons, you are required to abide by the following policies:

Lesson Day

Come ready to grow as a musician!

Arrive a few minutes early to lessons.

Arrive having played your instrument that day, if possible.

Materials

Bring the following items to each lesson:

*Instrument

*Slide/Valve Lubrication

*Assigned Music/Method Books

*Pocket Notebook

*Pencil

You are expected to obtain new materials in a timely manner. Pocket Notebooks must be purchased from your teacher. Your teacher may have a limited supply of other materials for sale, but this is not guaranteed.

If you do not have the required materials, your teacher may immediately end the lesson.

Every week you will be expected to listen to and report on at least ten minutes of recordings containing significant material related to your instrument.
