All students will be expected to purchase music as assigned. Once music is assigned and rehearsed, the student is encouraged to have lyrics and music memorized within two to three weeks, depending on the difficulty of the music. Focusing on vocal technique is difficult when students are struggling with the words and music. Coming to a lesson unprepared is not acceptable. The instructor reserves the right to cancel a lesson should a student come unprepared. In such a case, the lesson fee is forfeited by the student.
