Please copy and paste the following student contract into your word processor and bring a signed copy to your first lesson:
I,______________________________, agree to the following terms:
****Attendance Policy Students are expected to be on time to all lessons. Lesson time is lost when a student is late and therefore it slows the student’s progress. Your lesson time is over at the designated time every week. If you are late your lesson time cannot be extended since there will be another student’s lesson immediately following. If tardiness becomes a persistent problem you may be dropped from lessons, altogether. If there are extenuating circumstances (such as illness) that prevent you from coming to a lesson, you must call 4 hours before your lesson is scheduled to start to let me know you will not be coming. At that time I will make every effort to try and reschedule your lesson. If I am unable to reschedule the lesson for that week then you, of course, will not be charged for the lesson. If you have to reschedule more than 4 lessons you may be dropped from lessons, altogether. It depends on the circumstances and is solely up to the teacher’s discretion. If a lesson is missed and you give no notification than you WILL be charged for the lesson and it will NOT be rescheduled. After the 3rd un-notified absence you may be dropped from lessons, altogether.
****I agree to purchasing all necessary and required music. I agree to bring this music and my record notebook to all lessons.
****Participating in all required aspects of the concert as stated below:
Every student is required to participate in the concert. Concerts will be held once a year, near the end of the school year. Attire for the concert is up to the student, but VERY NICE concert attire is suggested. At the least the student should wear Sunday best. The attire is another way for the student to show who they are. Students will also need to acquire an accompanist for their recital. They can have Mom, Grandma, Aunt, whomever, but their accompanist will need to know the music well. If you do not have an accompanist I will have one that you will be able to hire for a couple of rehearsals and the concert. It will be your choice as to get an accompanist on your own or hire the one supplied.
****Practice as lesson assignments require.
****Lesson times and fees: $10 per half hour lesson. Payment for the month is due at the first lesson of the month.
Your lesson day and time is:_______________________________________________
-The student will be required to give 30-day notice if they intend to discontinue lessons.
