Miss Emily Violin Studio Policies

All students are expected to maintain a routine of practicing and listening 6-7 days per week with the support of an at-home practice partner.

The practice partner, usually a parent, silently takes notes during private lessons and participates fully in the learning process. As a student matures toward independence, the role of the parent shifts while remaining fully supportive in new ways.
