Lesson Guidelines & Cancellation Policy
Make up lessons will only be provided as the schedule permits, and only if deemed necessary by Ms.Blair. Students may exchange lessons with another student if a conflict arises or they may take advantage of a vacancy created by another student. Please inform Ms. Blair prior to the affected lessons.

If cancelling a lesson, please leave a message or contact Ms. Blair at least 24 hours in advance and before 3:00 p.m. in order to avoid payment for and forfeit of a lesson time. Also, frequent absences will result in dismissal.

DevonportLATE IS LOSS. If the student arrives at the lesson late, only the remainder of the lesson will be taught and the time will be forfeited. It is impossible to ask other students to alter their schedules to allow one student to be tardy.

As a professional musician and clinician, occasions may arise which will require that the schedule be altered. The cooperation and support of both the student and the parent are respectfully requested in these matters. If the instructor finds it necessary to cancel scheduled lessons, those lessons will not be rescheduled by the instructor unless a mutually convenient time is possible.

 

Materials
All students must have the proper lesson materials at each lesson. These materials include: a three ring, 1″ notebook with pockets; any assigned supplementary materials, recordings, and music; other materials related to vocal study which are pertinent to the situation (i.e. audition pieces, solos, scholarship information, etc.)

Recitals
There will be at least two recitals scheduled during the year, as well as workshops and performances, and informal master classes offered. Parents, family and friends are encouraged to attend each event.
