RULES IN THE SCHOOL
While in the school, In order to have a clean and nice  environment, please check the following recommendations:

The materials available in the waiting area are  for you and your child's  enjoyment but please leave them in order rather than all over the place.
Place the shoes at the entrance ( don't go downstairs with your street shoes)
Use the hangers at the entrance and waiting room for your coat.

Please clean any spills made during  your stay.
You can use the microwave and table but please clean it after you use them.

The  TV and DVD controls and movies are just for parents and adults to handle, please help your child to choose a movie, and place it  back to its case when done. 
Before you go, check that your child  has taken all  his/her  belongings (clothing, books and instrument)

PRACTICE
Practice at home is very important !

Please, talk with your child about a practice schedule of at least 5 - 10 minutes every day if he a  is beginner
or 20 - 30 minutes ( or more ) if  he has been learning the instrument  for more than 2 years or when preparing for the Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM) exams.
Divide the time of practice during the day and week, rather than practice everything in one day.
The benefits of music  in the brain and body come with daily practice.

Besides the practice of the instrument, there are more exercises and theory requirements to achieve; therefore, your child will need your help to go online and practice. The support of the parents is very important.

If your child wants a special song, let me know ahead of time ( at least 2 months ), so I can have the music ready for his   level  in the instrument of choice.

A good  quality musical instrument is necessary for your child to advance and sometimes he will need extra things like:
theory books, other instrument books,  metronome, music stand, tuner, extra strings,  instrument bag, a touch sensitive piano with 88 keys and pedal,  etc... please, start planning ahead to get those things, when you notice that your child is serious about learning to play an instrument.


Thank you for your support and help in keeping the music school in Harmony
