SUMMER LESSONS IN THE MONTHS OF JULY AND AUGUST 2019:
In the summer months of July and August we have flexibility to accommodate as many or as few lessons as you choose. Lessons are scheduled ahead of time, on specific weeks and days. After detailed consultation with the teacher’s availability you can choose your weeks and length of your lessons. You may consider more frequent or longer lessons on the weeks you can make it, to gain time for missing some weeks you cannot come in. Billing will follow accordingly, based on pre-booked lessons. Lessons are paid for in advance. During summer months we ask for minimum 2-weeks cancellation notice, or the lesson is considered missed and paid for. No make up lesson will be allowed for the missed lesson without 2-week notice. We limit the make up lessons to 2 in the summer.
Besides instrumental one on one lessons during the summer, we offer intense theory courses this summer, with the goal of taking exam in August. Levels 5, 6, 7, 8 and beyond. Those of you interested, please indicate it to Ms. Sue and we will send you more details. The theory teachers can work out the individual or group plan to make it happen. As of level 5 instrumental playing on any instrument, it is mandatory that in order to receive the RCM certificate the student needs to pass the theoretical exam. You may skip level 5 and take level 6 exam, or skip all levels exams and take only level 9 exam, however, you cannot skip learning all the material in the lower levels. The material accummulates and proper foundations are crucial. The sooner you start the better. Of course, it is good to take theory lessons weekly throughout the year! We will ALWAYS encourage it. But this could be an option for those with time constrains, those who are too busy during the year, etc. Please ask us about your individiual situation if you are comnsidering summer theory lessons.
