Lesson Offerings

Individual Lessons

Weekly Lessons

 

Most students prefer and benefit the most from individual private lessons scheduled consistently on a weekly basis at a regular time. In this environment the student receives the most individualized and personal guidance and attention. This is where the student can make the fastest progress.

 

Practice

 

Regular home practice is essential for student success.   Ideally, students should aim for at least 5 days of practice each week.

Short, daily practice sessions are more effective than one or two long sessions per week.  The most important time for students to practice is right after their weekly lesson, to solidify what they have just learned.  Research has shown that retention of new knowledge drops to 60% after just 24 hours. It’s not a good idea to wait until the end of the week, then “cram” practice right before a student’s next lesson!

 

For younger students, parental involvement in home practice is crucial for student success.  Please help your student to establish and stick to a practice routine, and see that practice time is free of distractions.  If you are the parent of an elementary age student, please plan to sit with your child for at least a portion of their daily practice time.

    LESSON POLICY

    Student Expectations

     

    Lessons will occur weekly. Please attend regularly. Students are expected to practice consistently at home and come to each lesson prepared. The amount of practicing will vary greatly depending on the level of the student, but beginning students should spend on a minimum of 20 minutes each day. A small amount of practice on a daily basis will prove far more beneficial than extended practice once a week. Parents of elementary-aged students should regularly assist and supervise practicing. All parents are welcomed to observe lessons so they may better assist the learning process.

     

    Payment

     

    The cost of music lessons is $35 per half hour, or $60 per hour. All payments must be delivered at the time of the lesson. Under no circumstances will lessons be taught without payment or on credit. Personal checks will be accepted, however cash is always welcome. Please remit checks to Steve Raleigh.

     

    Cancellation Policy

     

    • If the instructor cancels the lesson, or if the lesson location is closed for whatever reason, a make-up lesson will be scheduled. If no make-up lesson can be scheduled, a credit will be issued.
    • If the student skips the lesson without notifying the instructor, or with less than 24 hour notice, no make-up lesson or credit will be issued and the student will owe for the full cost of the originally scheduled lesson.
    • If the student cancels a lesson with at least 24 hour notice or more, there will be no penalty and a make-up lesson can be scheduled if desired and a mutually agreeable time can be scheduled.
    • The instructor reserves the right to make exceptions to any of the above terms.
