“There’s nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.”
Johann Sebastian Bach
New for 2022:
In order to ensure that students learn the best and progress well, practice is very important and necessary. Students will be expected to practice a minimum of 4 days each week for a set amount of time as discussed with the teacher in their first lessons. This length of time is determined based on the level of music they are playing at and their age.
- Parents will need to record their child's lesson times in their notebooks for the teacher to see each week.
- If students are failing to get the minimum amount of time/days of practice in on a consistent basis within the first month of lessons, the teacher will contact the parent to determine the reason for the lack of practice.
- If no improvement is made after another month, the teacher reserves the right to refuse to continue lessons in the next term.
