Be on time.
Students must be on time for lessons. Please give the instructor notice if you will not be at a lesson. Angie will only make up two lessons for the music year if she has been given 24 hr. notice.
Please bring to each class:
- binder with loose leaf paper
- music and books
- water bottle
Be actively practicing.
You will only advance to the degree that you spend time nurturing your voice or your piano.
Set aside 4-5 days a week to practice. Being consistent with shorter sessions is more effective than 1 longer session.
Bring ideas of music you want to learn to the lessons.
Be curious, ask questions.
