For those who have a weekly lesson, lessons will be scheduled at a pre-agreed time every week. This can be altered if needed by mutual agreement. Please give at least 24 hours notice if you need to cancel.
Starting the Session:
I will use the email address I have on file for you to send the invitation which will arrive just before the start of each session. I will make notes during the session and email these as a PDF afterwards, along with any additional material needed for practice.
During the Session:
Try to position your yourself 1-2m away from the camera. It is fine to sit or stand for the lesson, but if sitting you may need to stand up from time-to-time so I can see your hands and posture.
Other useful equipment:
A pencil and a music stand are a must. Think about how you set your stand up
For students under 16 years of age:
Calls should be initiated by a parent or carer, who should remain in the vicinity for the duration of the lesson.
