Lesson frequency and duration
All lessons are private, one-on-one, lasting 30 or 60 minutes each once a week. We have availability 7 days a week.
All lesson scheduling and payments are done at the front desk. Once we find an available time that works with your schedule, that time is yours until you tell us to change or stop. Instructors are NOT responsible for lesson schedule changes. Please notify the front desk if you have a scheduling conflict and would like to reschedule or cancel a lesson.
A lesson may be rescheduled or cancelled with at least 12 hours notice before the scheduled time. One lesson each month may be cancelled without rescheduling and credit given toward the following month's lessons. All lessons must be rescheduled or cancelled with the front desk. To reschedule or cancel a lesson, call us at 425-836-2263 or send us an email.
Exception: If you are sick and contagious, we would appreciate you not come to your lesson. Please let us know before your lesson time. We will not charge you for the missed lesson but we will require a make up to be scheduled at the time of the cancellation. Our instructors work in very close quarters with their students and they don't get paid for sick days. Please take this into consideration when coming to class while ill.
Occasionally, an instructor will be unable to teach due to illness, travel, etc. In order to keep the learning process consistent, we typically supply a substitute instructor just as you would find in a public school. The substitute will review with you your assignments from the previous week and teach you the next step in your progression. They may add something unique that you may not hear from your regular instructor so take advantage of it. They will give you a new assignment for you to work on during the next week.
We do perform a background check on each instructor and have peep-holes through each door to insure student's safety.
In the event of a power outage, we do continue to teach. We have portable lanterns in each room.
We will make an announcement on our voicemail and we will send out an email broadcast when we are closed due to snow. We DO NOT follow the public school district's closure schedule. We do have many instructors who live on the plateau and can make it in easily to teach.
If you need to cancel a lesson due to snow, please call us at 425-836-2263 or send an email as early as possible so that we may adjust our schedules appropriately.
Parents sitting in lessons
Parents who wish to observe a lesson are encouraged to make arrangements with the instructor, in advance, to audit either the first five minutes or the last five minutes of a lesson. Please keep in mind, when visitors are present during a lesson it can be a distraction as well as create performance anxiety and preclude the learning process. So, if arrangements are made in advance the teacher can prepare the student properly.
If the student has any medical issues, learning challenges, or behavioral issues, it is important to bring these issues to the attention of Moore Brothers Music staff. This is so we can properly match the student with the appropriate instructor as well as advise you in other related matters in an effort to better tailor the lesson plan to the student's needs.
