We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Luther College Community Music School. We are looking forward to an exciting and successful year! Luther College takes pride in being able to offer private lessons and classes to members of the community. Although we consider participation in this program a right of all students, we do expect certain standards of each student enrolled:
It is our goal to make lesson and class offerings through the Luther College Community Music School valuable and insightful to musicians of all ages and experiences. We hope that all LCCMS students are eager to enroll and participate fully in their lessons and classes.
By enrolling in the Luther College Community Music School, you become an important member of our Luther music community. Your participation and dedication is vital to the success and value of your education with us. Therefore, we ask our LCCMS students to abide by the following:
LCCMS teachers will be given parent contact information for students under the age of 18. Should there be any problems or concerns we will call as soon as possible to discuss the matter.
Tuition for private lessons must be paid in full prior to the first class or lesson of the session. Students may not begin until payment is received. Should weather or sickness cause a lesson to be cancelled, every effort will be made by the teacher to make up the lesson should advanced notice be given. "No shows" will not be rescheduled.
At home practice is an essential part of a students' musical development. Students are expected to practice at home. Students will set a goal for each practice session with their LCCMS teacher.
