Lesson time is a learning experience that requires concentration. Please observe the following guidelines:

·         Parents are welcome to observe their child’s lesson. Siblings may be present if enrolled with Sounds of Artistry, yet friends should not be present as your child’s concentration will be diminished.

·         Students are expected to complete all snacks, hand washing and rest room visits prior to arrival.

·         No food, drink, or gum is permitted in the studio.

·         Cell phones, ipods, mp3 players, laptops, pda’s or other electronic devices must be turned off in the studio.

Practice = Progress

 To ensure each child’s progress, parents should schedule a daily practice time to be completed in [1] 30 minute session or [2] 15 minute intervals using the correct practice methods that are taught in the lesson.

A weekly practice schedule and assignment book will be given to each student and should be checked and signed by the parent before each session.

These guidelines are suggested in order to avoid distractions and to maximize your child’s time for learning. A student’s rate of progress is accelerated when he or she applies the proper practice methods. This year should be an enjoyable musical experience for everyone!
