Studio Rules and Expectations
Attendance & Enrollment
All students are expected to attend lessons every week, at their appointed time, year round, including summer. Exceptions are made for :
- Band camp/Music Camp
- School rehearsals and performances such as musicals and band competitions
- A family vacation of reasonable length. I have to add this because I have had students leave the country for the entire summer without their horn (not good). If you have concerns about your summer plans, please bring them to my attention. We can probably make it work 🙂
If a student is absent for the majority of the summer, or misses multiple weekly lessons, then they will forfeit their place in the studio.
In the event of illness/accident/family emergency, please contact me by cell phone or text (248) 802-4930. I will try to reschedule your missed lesson if possible. You will not be billed for situations beyond your control.
Should I need to cancel a lesson due to illness/accident/family emergency I will try to contact you by cell phone or text.
All other cancellations (such as schedule conflicts) require a minimum of 24 hours notice and will not be made up.
Failure to provide 24 hour notice will require payment for the missed lesson.
Repeated and frequent cancellations may result in termination of lessons.
Payment should be submitted monthly, on or before the first lesson of each month. I accept cash, check, and Paypal (see payments page for details).
Presently, I have no waiting area to offer you. So please arrive no more than 5 minutes before your lesson time.
If the inner door is closed, please ring the door bell or knock rather than entering unannounced. This is greatly appreciated.
You are welcome to park in the driveway if there is a space available. Otherwise, please park in the street on our side of the road.
Parking on the opposite side of the street upsets my neighbors because it potentially blocks mail delivery in the afternoon and may inconvenience their guests who wish to park there. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
