PHILOSOPHY

I believe in a program of total musicianship -- a program that encompasses instrumental skills, music reading, music theory, technique, listening and performance skills.   It is a combination of these skills that makes my lesson time with each student relevant as well as fun.  It is a method that will enable students to enjoy music on their own terms through their lifetime.

 

THE PARENT-STUDENT RELATIONSHIP

The parental role in the context of music lessons is extremely important.  Please encourage your child's musical development by scheduling this or her day so that 1) there is sufficient time to practice; 2) by delivering and picking up your child promptly at lesson time; 3) by showing pride in the progress each child demonstrates; 4) by taking time to listen to your child perform at home; 5) by making sure he or she brings all required class materials to the lesson and 6) by attending semester recitals.

 

THE TEACHER-STUDENT RELATIONSHIP

Parents bringing siblings of the student to the lesson are asked to wait in the side or main waiting room during the lesson.

 

In the interest of building a solid teacher-student relationship, parents of new students are invited to sit in on the first three lessons.  After that, I ask that parents wait outside in the waiting room during lessons in order that the student-teacher working relationship may be developed.  Please feel free to discuss this policy with me.

PRACTICE TIME

Students are asked to practice a minimum amount of time each day.  This time will vary with their age and skill level, but should be no less than 25 minutes a day.  This should not be seen as the goal, but rather the minimum amount of practice time for each student. 

TUITION RATES AND LESSON SCHEDULE 

For young people, I run my studio on a semester basis.  Each semester includes between 14 and 17 lessons, plus a free Make-Up Week at the end of each semester.  New students may sign up for a three-week trial package, after which they are put onto a pro-rated semester schedule.  Please call 907-245-2328 for tuition and payment plans.

FALL SEMESTER 2017 BEGINS MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 2015.   ADULTS WHO WISH TO SCHEDULE BY THE WEEK OR MONTH ARE NOT SUBJECT TO THE SEMESTER CALENDAR.
