The Suzuki School of the Woodlands holds quarterly recitals. Students are also encouraged to participate in the many events available through STXSA such as Musicales, Workshops, Holiday and Summer Community concerts. Parents can also provide frequent opportunities for their violinist to hold a concert for family and friends. Parents and students alike are encouraged to attend as many professional recitals and concerts as possible. These are wonderful ways to build enthusiasm for music!
Lessons missed by the teacher at any time for any reason will be made up at a mutually convenient time for the student and the teacher. Lessons missed by the student for any reason will not be made up nor tuition refunded. However, students who must miss a lesson may switch lesson times with another student and then BOTH families must notify the teacher of the change.
Please do not bring a sick child to their violin lessons or to Group Class. Please attempt to change lessons with a well child on a different day. If you are unable to accomplish this, please inform the instructor by telephone. If the child arrives at the studio ill, the parent and child will be sent home.
Please make every effort to be at each lesson on time with all lesson materials (violin, music, notebook, etc.). Participate in lessons with your beginning violin student by taking notes and video recording portions of the lesson. Help your child organize their schedule to include practicing each day, preferably at the same time each day. Students may break up their practice times into smaller increments and practice multiple times a day if necessary. The student should have a relatively quiet, well-lit place to practice with a music stand and a metronome. Parents are responsible to play the Suzuki CD(s) for their child to hear each day.
During the lesson, students are expected to demonstrate they have practiced sufficiently to pass off assignments each week. This requires that the student practice the lesson material and listen, listen, listen to the Suzuki CD recordings each day. If the student is consistently missing lessons or not practicing sufficiently to progress, the student may be dropped.
