Students are expected to come to lessons prepared and with a positive attitude. Lessons are merely a guide; the real improvement happens every day at home in between instruction. Again, each student differs, but daily practice is necessary. Daily practice is mandatory.
Parents or guardians are required to attend lessons of all students under the age of 18. Their commitment and involvement are just as important as the students. Sound and video recording devices are strongly encouraged to use as a reference for home practice.
