Philosophy In order to provide the highest quality of private flute instruction, students must be open and willing to learn. I create an environment for freedom of expression while molding students into classically trained musicians. Working together, we can achieve greatness!
Your flute! Must be clean and in good working order
*Carolyn Nussbaum, J.L. Smith, or Local Music Store
Cleaning rod, inside cleaning swab, and outside cleaning cloth
A metronome and tuner (Smartphone apps are acceptable)
A black folder and notebook to keep notes
Required books/pieces of music
*I run a legal studio. You must purchase your own music from a music store or online
Arrive on time to weekly lessons.
Come prepared to your lesson with required materials.
Keep a positive outlook while learning new concepts and ask questions.
Practice You are expected to practice regularly based on your schedule. I will assist you in writing a weekly schedule to find times that work best for you. Specific practice strategies will be discussed in your lessons.
If late to a lesson, the lesson time is not required to go later than the assigned time.
If you need to cancel/reschedule a lesson, you must give 24 hours notice to be counted as an excused absence. Before rescheduling with me, try to swap with another student’s time for that day.
During each academic year, each student is given 2 unexcused absences before being excused from the studio.
The teacher reserves the right to cancel/reschedule lessons due to professional conflicts or illness. Lessons will be made up at the students’ convenience.
Tuition fees are $20/30 minute lessons and $40/60 minute lessons. If the student is unavailable to commute, Skype lessons may be arranged. Students have the option of paying weekly or monthly (Due at the time of the lesson). You will be sent an invoice via email and it can be paid by cash or check.
Excused absence payments will transfer over to another week. Unexcused absences may not receive reimbursement at the discretion of the teacher.
Payments will be paid in full on time. Failure to do so on multiple occurrences will result in being excused from the studio
