Studio Policies


  1. All Cancellations will be charged.  You are signing up for a time spot held for you each week.
  2. Teacher Cancellations will be made up at the discretion of the student.  If needed a credit will be put on the next month's lesson.
  3. Students should Practice Consistently!  This is the only way to learn!  Students are asked to practice Five Days a Week.  It does not have to be an incredible amount of time but the consistency of the days is really important.  I understand there will be bad weeks but 5 days is our goal.  
  4. Recitals are optional - We will hold our recitals with my other full instrument lessons company Mobile Music Academy.  It is a very nice event held in December and May of each year.


No Lessons will be held on the Holidays below

  • Labor Day
  • Fall Break – If you need a week off for Fall Break please let me know ahead of time.
