June went by super fast!! I hope you are all enjoying your Summer!!!
There are just a few- but important- announcements for July.
· I’m MOVING! I’m pretty sure that I have talked to everyone about this. I will be moving to California on August 1. This doesn’t affect online students. You will all have your lessons as scheduled. Utah students are welcome to make the transition to online lessons, if you would like. Please let me know ASAP if you would like to. I am hoping to compile a list and send instructions to you. Also, please don’t feel like you have to commit to a certain amount of lessons. If you want to try it for a month and see how it goes, that is just fine!
· There are NO LESSONS the week of July 27-31. This is a 5th week and will not need a make-up. Students with lesson times on Monday and Tuesday will be using June 29 and 30th as “July lessons” instead of June.
· When arriving to lessons, please make sure you arrive as close to your assigned time as possible. You are welcome to come in 5 minutes before your lesson time. Any earlier can make the student before you a little uncomfortable. The same should be applied to staying after your lesson time as well.
· Finally, I know that you want to have as much time as possible to sing during your lesson. However, please do not wait until the END of your lesson to inform me of scheduling changes that need to happen. This takes time away from the lesson after you. Also, please be considerate of my personal time. I often receive texts or phone calls early in the morning, or late in the evening or night. I thought it might help if I set OFFICE HOURS. Therefore, you may contact me from 12:30-2:00 daily, and from 5:30-6:30 on weekdays. Outside of those hours and on weekends, I will be spending time with my family and will not respond until my earliest convenience. HOWEVER, the BEST time to work out scheduling conflicts is DURING YOUR LESSON TIME! If it will only take a few minutes, I suggest taking care of things at this time. Otherwise, please try to contact me during the early afternoon or evening.
Thanks so much! Again, let me know if you are planning on online lessons. I have been teaching online for 5 years and find it to be successful. I do believe that it takes a certain personality though. If you choose not to do online lessons, I am contacting other teachers in the area and requesting their help in placing you.
Please let me know if you have any questions!!
