Here are some of my expectations for parents of suzuki flute students. Please keep these in mind so that your child obtains the best learning experience possible.
To provide your child with their own listening device on which they can listen to recordings of music.
To liaise with me prior to hiring or purchasing a flute.
To purchase the necessary equipment: music stand, music books, apps or devices.
Whenever possible, to attend lessons with their child.
During lessons, please remain focused on the teaching. I ask you to refrain from using your phone unless it is directly related to the teaching, for example, you are encouraged to video segments of the teaching that you may like to replay at home.
It is your responsibility to ensure your child is listening to their recordings most days. At times I will request you get additional recordings to listen to.
Invoices are sent once each term and prompt payment is appreciated.
For families who decide to learn the Suzuki way please see the separate section on Suzuki Learning.
