Once a new student has registered with me I will contact them to arrange a lesson time. All lessons will be done on Zoom, Face Time or, Skype until it is safe again to do in person lessons. Payment must be made prior to our scheduled lessons as well. The student must make a goal to find practice time as we discuss individual goals for each week's lesson. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
