Studio Policies & Fees


Student Expectations

  • Be prompt & come prepared
    (music, notebook, binder, pencil)

  • Set a regular practice schedule:  

    • Elementary students—at least 3x/week for at least 15-20 min.  

    • Middle school students—at least
      4-5x/week for at least 20-30 min. 

    • High school students—at least 5x/week for at least 30-45 min.

    • Adult students—practice as many days/week as you can.  

    • Remember:  quality is more important than quantity & mindful practice creates results.  You only improve with practice, & the more you practice the better you will become!

  • Participate in studio recitals/concerts

    • Spring & Fall Recitals--all students

    • Solo & Ensemble Contest--middle & high school flute students 

    • ILMEA recommended for high school students


Parent Expectations

  • Provide an instrument in good working condition.  If maintenance is required, please complete the flute repairs/piano tuning as quickly as possible.

  • Ensure students arrive promptly at their lessons and reschedule lesson conflicts with plenty of notice.

  • Help students find a distraction-free time & place to practice. 

  • Check in occasionally on assignments (more frequently with younger students) & help students as necessary.

  • Be an audience, when you can, for your student’s pieces.

  • Respond to studio communications in a timely manner.


Lesson Fees

  • Lesson tuition is paid on a monthly basis, due the first day of each month.

  • Payments should be made via Zelle/
    Chase Quick Pay.

  • Rescheduling Requests must be 
    received at least 24 hours in advance for me to have time to look for a replacement slot.  There's even a chance I can switch students for certain lessons, if I'm given enough notice.  However, we all have instances of sudden illness/last minute conflicts.  In those instances, I will record a lesson the student can make up on his/her/their own time.
