If you have to cancel a lesson, please let me know in advance. 24 hours is ideal if possible, but even a few hours is appreciated. I’m happy to make up missed lessons if you reschedule in advance.
If you don’t show up and don’t let me know in advance, you forfeit your entire lesson fee.
What to Bring
Students should bring music folders and a small notebook to each lesson, and Kathleen encourages parents to read notebooks.
Practice expectations vary depending on your goals. Kathleen is more than happy to discuss expectations for practice with parents and students case by case. As a general rule, Kathleen encourages regular practice and will happily assign listening exercises and interesting research projects, as well as singing exercises.
Sometimes kids don’t mind having their parents in the room during singing lessons, and other times it can be really disruptive. I am happy to give it a try, but if I feel that a parent’s presence in the room is having a negative effect on a child’s learning, I’ll say so.
I prefer teaching in English, but I can also speak fluent German.
Lessons can be paid by cash, Paypal or bank transfer. Receipts available upon request.
