Mission Statement and Studio Policies


In fulfillment of one of my fundamental passions, my students make permanent gains neurologically and in terms of focus, confidence, and self-expression that enhance every area of their lives. In the process, they develop musical capabilities and have performance experiences that they and their families will never forget. :)


Consistency is critical to the achievement of musical goals. Toward these ends, regular lessons are scheduled for each student at agreed upon times. This is my commitment to reserve that time for each student’s exclusive use and to make efficient use of it. In return, students commit to consistent attendance. When issues arise, please request to re-schedule rather than cancelling when at all possible. Requests should be made with at least 24 hours notice, more when possible, and should be limited to emergencies, sudden illnesses, family vacations, and other important events. With less than 24 hours notice, payment is expected for cancellations and for requests to re-schedule that can’t be accommodated, except in cases of emergency or sudden illness.


Students should arrive on time to take full advantage of the time allotted to them.


Students make extraordinary progress when families institute regular practice times and monitor them. The most effective approaches are customized per student and family.


Payment choices include cash, checks, and credit cards. Payments may be made monthly, bi-monthly, or weekly, and are due prior to or at each lesson.

Thus we’ll jam successfully on the exciting project of musical skill-building, music making, and all the marvelous inherent growth therein!

Musically yours,
