The Initial Interview

As a serious educator,  I always like to meet with the new parents student to get acquainted with new prospective students. I ask that we set up a 45 minute interview at the studio to have the parents and student see the facility and have a chance to ask questions. It is at this point that I also test the student for their readiness in music and listen to repertoire that transfer students are currently playing.

There is a charge of my standard 45 minute fee that is to be paid in full at the end of the interview. After our meeting, you are welcome to take some time to consider joining my studio. Please call at least one week in advance to set up an appointment to schedule this interview. Contact me with any questions.

After the initial interview, I will express my opinion regarding the child’s musical ability and readiness to join me. Please remember that time slots will be accommodated as best as possible, but that the first choices go to the students who are already with my studio.

Many times,  I do have a waiting list, but I try to accommodate new students as best as possible. If my schedule does not have any openings at that time, I try to refer you to other teachers or you may opt to stay on the list in case a slot becomes available.
