So you want to take music lessons....

Studio Orientation

I hope to better acquaint you with my program as you consider a commitment to providing this education for your child.
 
Prior to full-fledged enrollment in the program, interested families complete an Orientation Period, which helps you to determine if this program is the right fit for your child and family. There is no charge for the Orientation Period, nor is there any obligation for participants in the orientation period to commit to full-fledged enrollment afterward. A complete Orientation Period must include all of the following activities:
 
1. Read through studio policies:
Studio Policies

2. Learn about the Suzuki Method:
About the Suzuki Method

3. Observation (with your child) of group classes

4. Observation (with your child) of private lessons

5. Studio orientation meeting with April Losey to discuss any additional questions you may have.

6. At studio orientation meeting April will size your child for an instrument and discuss lesson times.

Please note, observations and orientation meeting must be done by the parent who will be the practice partner, attending lessons and practicing with the child.

For information on where and when to observe the program,
you may call April Losey for information at 909-213-2699 or e-mail at aprillosey@hotmail.com. 

I look forward to meeting you and answering any remaining questions.


Getting an Instrument

Please wait to get an instrument until I have sized your child! It is essential for success that the instrument be the correct size and of good quality. I can advise you on where to buy or rent an appropriate instrument.
