Key Facts & Policies

ZOOM RULES| Each student will be provided with a copy of Yellow Dog’s ZOOM RULES.  We ask that parents of young children review these rules with their child/children prior to their starting lessons.

CONNECTING TO ZOOM STUDIOS|
Upon registration, students will be provided with their teachers ZOOM link, zoom password and a direct email address to use for communicating with their teacher re: homework, or to alert them of zoom connection troubles.   We encourage students to connect to their teacher’s ZOOM waiting room 5 minutes prior to their lessons start time.

HOME PRACTISE AND PARENT SUPPORT | All students are encouraged to develop a solid practice rhythm as part of their weekly ‘homework’ routine, so they can progress at a satisfying pace.  Parents of young children can participate in their child’s musical growth in as many ways as possible, ie: make sure instruments are within reach/plain site on a regular basis; have music playing in the home/car as much as possible; watch live music videos with your child on youtube or Netflix; set up an itunes account and/or playlists and make both easily accessible to their children if possible. We invite parents to arrange with their child’s teacher, a day where they can attend and quietly observe a lesson, or, use part of the lesson for a private discussion with their child’s instructor to discuss ways to make the lessons more effective, efficient, or enjoyable.

MISSED LESSONS:  We ask that you kindly give Yellow Dog’s office as much notice as possible when needing to cancel lessons.
