Parents in Lessons
If a parent feels that they need to be present during their son/daughter's lesson, they are welcome to sit in on a lesson as silent observers only. Parents who do sit in on lessons will be asked to refrain from answering for their child, unless there are special circumstances. Any parents who do sit in on lessons will be asked to take notes and/or record the lesson, so that they can reinforce (at home) the information taught during that lesson. Due to limited space, only one parent in the lesson please.
Prompt Pick-up after Lessons
Parents, please be on time to pick up your son/daughter at the end of their lesson. This is especially important if your son/daughter’s lesson is at the end of the teaching day.
The Teacher will ask that each student purchase at least 1 book to work out of per year (unless they already have a strong vocal music library). Sheet music and/or books that are "Property of Monitz Vocal Studio" are on loan only. Students are expected to take good care of these items until they are returned. If a student does not take care of the sheet music/book or loses it, they will no longer be loaned music. Additionally, there may be times when a student wants to learn a specific song that Rebekkah might not have in her library. If this is the case, the Student will be required to purchase that piece of music. www.musicnotes.com is a fantastic sheet music resource.
Occasionally, a student will need an additional lesson or an extended lesson, to prepare for an upcoming audition or performance. Please communicate with Rebekkah about this as soon as possible, so that she can make time in the schedule.
