Cash and/or checks are accepted. Existing students are also welcome to pay for their lessons here:
Lessons are to be paid in advance, four lessons at a time.
Lessons must be cancelled at least 24 hours in advance. Make up lessons are not guaranteed, but are scheduled based on availability. If you can not make it to a lesson, please call or text 518 285-0145, or e-mail email@example.com.
In the event that your lesson is canceled by me for any reason, a make up lesson will be scheduled, or a credit issued for the following month if you have already paid.
Students are expected to arrive on time, well prepared, with proper lesson materials. I do my best to stay on time, but sometimes the lessons can run a little late. I make sure that each student gets a full lesson, and that they leave understanding the material.
Every student has a different schedule, abilities, and goals. Here are a few generally accepted approaches to practicing:
• Practicing a little every day is better than practicing for very long periods once or twice a week.
• Warming up for a few moments before practice will make your practice session more productive.
• Electric guitar students should always practice with their amps. The amp is part of the instrument.
• Beginners need about half an hour of daily practice. Young kids may need their parents help. • All others should practice at least a half hour per day. If you are alert and paying attention, more practice leads to faster progress.
• Review the lesson material as soon as possible after the lesson.
• Don’t try to practice the material faster than you can play it!
Each student should bring to the lesson:
• His or her guitar.
• The appropriate books.
• An MP3 player or iPod with songs they would like to learn.
The following are items that will be helpful to have at home:
• An electronic tuner.
• A metronome.
• A music stand.
• A capo.
• A variety of guitar picks. Until you figure out your preferred size and material it’s good to experiment!
