MISSED LESSON POLICY

Lessons missed by a student for any reason will not be rescheduled nor refunded. Lessons that I miss will be rescheduled or refunded. Due to my changing performing schedule, lessons will, at times, be irregularly scheduled. My calendar generally follows the calendar of the Ann Arbor Public Schools.

SUZUKI TRIANGLE

In music acquisition, the parent, child, and teacher form a triangle. All three points of the triangle are equal, and all three legs of the triangle must be respected and nurtured. As the teacher, I am only with the student one or two days a week, so the parent takes on a crucial role at home.
