MISSED LESSON POLICY

If a student has to miss a lesson, families should use the parent contact list (sent over email) to try to find a time to switch with other students. Now that I'm only teaching one day a week, it's harder to switch lessons. If you can't reschedule, I'll try to reschedule your lesson during the week. If I can't find a time that week, then it will be a lost lesson. If I have to miss a lesson, I will either schedule a makeup lesson or I will refund your lesson fee. 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.
