Covid Policies

Due to Covid, I am available to teach online. I will also be teaching in person at Boomer Music Company in Fort Collins. In person lessons will be socially distanced by at least 6 ft. Masks are mandatory for anyone entering Boomer Music. Additionally, stands and chairs will be disinfected before each student arrives. The room will be ventilated for 30 min before each lesson. 

If you are sick, or believe you might have been exposed to someone with Covid, please cancel your lesson! The lesson you missed will be rescheduled.

Calendar

Payment

Option 1: Pay per lesson

Payments per lesson are due at the end of each lesson. 

Option 2: Pay per semester (16 lessons total)

Payments per semester must be received before the start of the semester. 

I accept payments in cash, check, Zelle, and Venmo. Contact me for more information on pricing and to set up your first lesson.

Student Cancellation

Schedules permitting, each student will be allowed a maximum of two make-up lessons per semester. Make-up lessons will be scheduled during regular teaching hours as openings become available. Please give me a 24 hour notice before cancellations; this will help you and others receive a make-up lesson. Lessons missed without prior notice will still be charged. Scheduled make-up lessons will not be rescheduled for any reason (i.e. no make-ups for make-up lessons).

Teacher Cancellation

Any lesson that I cancel is guaranteed to be rescheduled. 

Required Materials

Students are expected to have their own instruments, cases, rosin, shoulder rest, cleaning cloth, binder, and music to bring to each lesson. If the student has never taken a lesson before, I recommend setting up an appointment at Boomer Music Company and have them advise you on what violin to rent or purchase

Parental Involvement

Parents are expected to attend lessons for children under 10 years old. Once a student is 10 or older, I start having students take more ownership of their own playing and practicing, so lesson attendance is less crucial. However, parents are always welcome to attend the lesson regardless of age.
