At The Studio
Arriving early: If a student arrives early and enters the studio, it can impede the privacy of the previous student’s lesson. Please let yourself in and wait in the enclosed porch until you are called in to the studio. Departing late: Parents, please pick your child up on time. If a parent is late picking up a student, there may be a conflict with the privacy of the following student and the convenience of the household.
Sitting in on lessons: Parents are welcome to sit in on the first lesson to get a feel for teaching style, or if you feel your child is nervous and needs the support. However, in subsequent lessons, students tend to respond more effectively to instruction when parents are not present. In order to build the relationship between teacher and student, to keep the student focused, and to nurture the student’s initiative, parents are encouraged to drop children off rather than sit in.
