The student is
expected to have a cooperative attitude. Please remember that the
teacher will never expect you to do something that you are really
not capable of doing. Give anything the teacher asks you to do a
fair try. If you are not able to do it the teacher will adjust the
task or try a different approach. “It is far better to try and fail
than not try at all!” Your teacher is not judging you- she has only
your best interests in mind.
It is important to
speak and act respectfully to the teacher. If you do not feel this
is possible, then you probably need a different teacher.
If your parent is
observing your lesson, do not speak to her/him; keep your focus on
the teacher. (They are also expected not to speak to you.)
Please do not chew
gum during the lesson.
Make sure your hands
are clean and your fingernails are clipped prior to the lesson
(keeping a clippers in the case is a good idea). It is not possible
to play a stringed instrument with nails that extend beyond the
fingertips and should optimally be shorter than that. Longer nails
than this will need to be clipped at the lesson.
(necklaces, dangling earrings, jangling bracelets, etc.) should be
removed for the lesson.
Despite all of the
rules remember to Have Fun!
