He studied classical music extensively for four years under the prestigious direction of Scott Taylor, the President of the American Bandmaster’s Association He holds an Associate’s Degree in Commercial Music, focusing in Audio Engineering from Collin College.

Cancelation & Rescheduling Policy

 

  • My make-up policy is for extenuating circumstances like the occasional illness or unexpected family emergencies. I am a year-round business and do not close for summer vacation. I am happy to make the occasional rescheduled make-up if notice is given and we schedule the make-up in advance; however, I expect that you respect my time and scheduling. As such, taking months of vacation time or scheduling other activities during your scheduled lesson time is not a valid excuse for a rescheduled make-up. I do not carry over make-up dates. If you do not make your rescheduled lesson within one week of scheduling a make-up, it is void, and you will not be entitled to a refund of the cost of your missed lessons.
  • ●  In the event that you have to cancel a lesson, 24 hours’ notice is required. We will reschedule your lesson at that time. If you cancel a lesson within 24 hours or fail to attend your scheduled lesson, you will not be entitled to a rescheduled lesson or a refund for the lesson’s cost.
  • ●  If at any time during the month you should decide to cancel your lessons, I will refund your remaining lessons in that month, less a 20% inconvenience fee.
