Because of her busy teaching and performing schedule, lessons will not be made up by Angela. This includes lessons missed due to illness. It is also necessary to call in advance and let her know you will be missing a lesson so that her time can be utilized wisely. If Angela has to cancel a lesson, a make-up lesson or credit will be offered.
All students are expected to practice. Parents will take notes and students and parents are expected to follow instructions given by teacher concerning practicing. The amount of time necessary to progress in playing will vary by age and level of ability. All children are capable of succeeding on the violin/viola with practice! If a student is not prepared for a lesson then the teacher has the right to end the lesson early and no refund or make-up lesson will be given.
For your child to make the most of their lesson, it is important for them to be five minutes early before the scheduled lesson time. That allows us to start promptly. if the student is more than ten minutes late, that is considered a missed lesson.
