Missed Lessons: 

There are no refunds for lessons missed by the student.  Lessons missed because of an emergency or illness will be made up as the schedule allows or during make-up weeks.  Lessons missed by the teacher will be made up or refunded.  Please avail yourself of the student lesson exchange program.  This allows you the flexibility to switch lessons with another students should a conflict arise.

Recitals, Group Lessons & Competitions:

Two recitals are scheduled each year.  Group lessons are held on a monthly basis (please see calendar of events).  Opportunities for Guild and GPSA events will also be available throughout the year.

Practicing: 

Students are asked to bring a three-ring binder and all music to each lesson.  Weekly practice plans are provided.  It is the parent’s responsibility to write careful notes about each assignment.  It is the student’s responsibility to carefully practice each assignment.  Progress cannot be made if a student is not practicing daily- if an assignment is unclear, please contact me right away.  Practice tips are always available!

Parental Observation:

Parents are expected to listen attentively and take practice notes in the lessons of students under the age of thirteen.  There may be times when we ask a parent to sit in on an older student’s lesson, especially if the student needs particular help or encouragement.

Instrument & Music:

Each student must have an acoustic piano that is kept in good working order (no keyboards or digital pianos, please) and tuned a minimum of once a year.  Each family should own a metronome.  Students are expected to purchase their own music within the week it was assigned.

Withdrawal:

Families enrolling in this program make a commitment to complete the studio year.  Should you need to terminate lessons for emergency reasons, please inform me as soon as possible.  Payment of all lessons up to that point, as well as for at least four lessons after that time, is required.   

Contact Me:

We are always available to answer practice questions and offer tips and encouragement.  If canceling a lesson the same day, please call and leave a message.  You may notify us by e-mail if giving more than 24 hours notice. waggoner412@gmail.com
