  • Students must be at least 14 years old to sign up.
  • Recurring weekly lessons are recommended to all students.

  • Students are expected to come prepared to lessons with their instrument in good working order, any relevant music/handouts, music stand, pencil, and a notebook.
  • A metronome, tuner, recording device, and staff paper are also recommended materials.
