It can be difficult to ensure lessons begin and end on time. Please plan to arrive 5 minutes ahead of your lesson. 3-5 minutes before your lesson start time, come quietly into the room! You are free to then find a spot to drop cases and find an empty seat, use the bathroom, get instruments out and listen to the last few minutes of the prior lesson. It is sometimes interesting to see what someone else’s lesson is like and your presence gives the prior students a chance to play for an audience! It will feel weird at first as it may seem like you are interrupting or intruding, but this is the (rather) odd etiquette of music lessons.
