Lessons will be tailored to each student's needs. Younger students looking to improve playing while in school orchestra will be guided through etude books and play a variety of solo music. High school students can continue this path, or focus on preparation for college and auditions. These students will learn basic orchestral excerpts expected on auditions, as well as some standard solo music.
Lessons are given at 715 5th Ave Pl in Coralville. Ashley is willing to travel to locations within the Iowa City/Cedar Rapids area for an adjusted rate.
The cost is $25 per half hour, with available sessions of 30 minutes, 45 minutes or one hour. Sessions longer than one hour may be specially requested.
Payment for the month is expected at the first lesson of each month. Ashley accepts cash, check and credit card. A three percent processing fee will be added for credit card transactions.
The student is expected to give 24 hours' notice via email or phone if he/she needs to miss a lesson. A makeup lesson will be scheduled, or the student will receive credit for the missed lesson. Less than 24 hours' notice will result in a cancelled lesson without credit. The same notice will apply for the teacher. Emergencies will be considered.
The student (and parent, for students under 18) will be expected to sign a contract detailing the expectations of them, the studio and the teacher.
