Workshop Conclusion

 

Workshop 4th hr option~ 4th hour option is the final Practical of the workshop. First opt to break for lunch or dinner and come back for the fourth session. This segment is especially helpful for Bands or Worship Teams but can be effective for classical choirs as well. It includes getting the vocalists on the stage/platform and behind mics with the musician/musicians assembled and putting it all together, (providing your musician/musicians are willing to make an appearance and put in an hour behind their instruments.) Often this hour is spent developing good stage/platform protocol, etiquette and presence, mic technique, and addressing group dynamics while putting to practice what was learned in sessions I, II and III.

Cancellation Policy:

Lesson dates and times are scheduled with both the teacher and student in mind. Time is valuable. With that in mind it is important to be conscientious about cancellations.
If a cancellation is necessary then a phone call or text message, 24hrs in advance if possible, is the best way to inform one another. Make-up lessons can be arranged but a missed or cancelled make-up lesson will not be rescheduled or refunded.
Emergencies happen and I am willing to work with a student if such is the case. If a student does not show up for a lesson and has neglected to make a cancellation it is my option to schedule a make-up lesson if it is convenient.
Cancellations that may be refunded are at my discretion. These lessons may be cancelled as a result of illness or injury or, an unforeseen unexpected event, that prevents either student or teacher from being able to fulfill their commitment.
