Glenn Weiser, Instructor
The Banjo & Guitar Studio
Here is an explanation of
my lesson policy and other information about my lessons.
- Payment. My rates are $100 for four private
half-hour lessons in both Southwick MA and Newington CT. Fees are due
on the first lesson of each four-week period and are nonrefundable.
All lessons must be paid for whether attended or not, with the
exception of two weeks allowed off or summer vacations. Makeup lessons
are possible under certain conditions (see part 3).
- Scheduling. Most students prefer a fixed time
every week, but if your work/school hours vary I can usually
accommodate that. If you need to change your regular lesson time I
will try to accommodate that as well.
- Cancellations and makeup lessons. In the case of
cancellations with at least 24 hours advance notice (call me at
413-455-9215) to cancel, not the store in which you take lessons),
makeup lessons are possible. If I have an opening in my schedule at a
time you can make, then you may have a makeup lesson. If you canít
make any of the times I have open or if my schedule is full, then I
still have to charge. My schedule is online here:
- Materials-bring your guitar and all books/lesson
sheets to your lessons. If you have an electric guitar, you do not
need to bring an amp. I also advise bringing a book of blank music
paper in which I can write. I have a sound recorder on my laptop so I
can record the songs/exercises you will be practicing. Having audio
examples will help your progress.
- Direction. Lessons can go in many directions, so
please make sure I understand what your musical goals are. Some
students want to learn their favorite songs, while others want a
progressively graded course covering music reading, theory,
improvisational skills, etc. I try to tailor my approach to the
individual as much as possible.
- Practice. Thereís no way around it-to learn an
instrument, you have to practice it. 30 minutes daily is the minimum
you will need to progress; more is better.
If you have questions
about any of the above, feel free to ask me. - Glenn Weiser
