We Are Music
A. Basic lesson information:
Q. What happens if I miss a lesson?
A. If you miss a lesson, you pay for it anyway. If you let us know you won't be in, you get a make-up lesson. That is
either an additional lesson in the week or an hour lesson the next time you come for your lesson. You cannot use
the make-up to replace a regular lesson. The make-up lesson has to be taken within a month of the missed day
and it has to be taken in while you are a regularly scheduled student.
Q. How many books do you use?
A. Guitar: a Primer, a book with real music, while you are in that book, you also learn
chords and finger positions. After that what ever music you want to play.
Piano: Basically all lessons are prepared individually. Beginning usually lessons from a book I wrote combined with
a primer, then another lesson book, then "real" musicwhich varies by student.
Advanced students all music is chosen just with them in mind.
All Theory and Reality: All lessons are designed with the needs of each student in mind.
Q. What age do you take students?
A. 6 years and older.
Q. Can I take an hour lesson instead of a 1/2 hour?
A. To start you don't need an hour lesson. By taking an hour lesson, you don't learn twice as fast. There is only so much your brain can handle
at a time. Hour lessons are for when you have progressed far enough to benefit from the additional time.
Q. Do you give recitals?
A. No, not usually. When a student is focused only on the piece they are going to perform, they don't progress in any other way.
Q. Can I take lessons ever other week.
A. No, with weekly lessons, the student shows the most progress.
Q. What do lessons cost?
A. Call for price.
