HOW OFTEN DO STUDENTS TAKE LESSONS?
To get the most out of your lessons, we recommend that you take one lesson per week. However, we do give you the flexibility of learning at your own pace, so it is completely up to you how many lessons you would like to take each month. Most students take 4 lessons per month, but some take only 2 and others up to 8 lessons per month. The more you take the better and sooner you’ll become proficient. You always have the option to change the frequency of lessons as you go along
WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?
At Markee, you are not bound by any long-term commitments and with proper notification, you can cancel your lesson at any time. We ask students to buy 4 lessons at a clip. If you can’t make a lesson, just let us know and we’ll roll that money over to your next scheduled lesson.
You can also take advantage of a discount for multiple lessons.
We do not offer refunds on lessons paid for but not used. If you are physically unable to take the remaining lessons, you may save them for a later date (you have up to 12 weeks) or give them away.
HOW DO I KNOW MY COACH/INSTRUCTOR IS SAFE AND QUALIFIED?
At Markee, we only hire music teachers that have a passion for music and a passion for teaching. At Markee, we believe that making music is a gift that lasts a lifetime, and that’s the standard all of our coach/instructors have. We have a rigorous certification process that combines tactical skill with an inspiring attitude. Our coach/instructors are all seasoned musicians and teachers. At Markee we target coaches with a minimum of 5 years teaching experience
We are extremely selective. All Markee teachers go through a certification process including:
A job application with educational history, experience, and references
A thorough interview with the owner of Markee
Personal and professional reference checks
Criminal background checks
Consistent training and auditing of coach/instructor performance
Customer feedback surveys
Student teacher satisfaction and progress reports monthly.
Each coach/instructor is matched to his or her student based on musical style, genre and of course, instrument. Chemistry is the key. If for any reason the student and the coach don’t get along, we’ll gladly make a change to a personality that makes for a world-class experience.
HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE FOR A LESSON?
Lesson rates vary depending on the length of the lesson. We offer private ½ hour and one-hour lessons. We pride ourselves on having the most competitive rates in town.
DO YOU OFFER FREE TRIAL LESSONS?
We do not offer a free trial lesson, however, we are sure that you’ll love your experience at Markee!
MAY I SPEAK WITH THE TEACHER BEFORE I BOOK THE LESSONS?
Your teacher will contact you once a lesson or lessons have been scheduled and paid for. During that first call, your coach will discuss what you are looking to accomplish through your lessons and will answer any questions about the lesson plan that you may have.
CAN I PAY WHEN I GET TO THE LESSON?
Yes, but we do need a charge card on file. You can pay for your 4 lesson block when you arrive
CAN I PAY WITH CREDIT OR DEBIT?
If you wish to come in and pay cash, you certainly may. That said, we take Visa, MasterCard, Amex or a debit card for your convenience.
DO I NEED TO HAVE MY OWN INSTRUMENT IN ORDER TO TAKE A LESSON?
Yes, as you will need to practice your lessons at home. We will accommodate you on your first lesson, but then you will need your own.
WHAT IS YOUR RESCHEDULING POLICY?
If you need to miss a lesson, we require that you give us 24 hours notice. If you cancel the day of the lesson, you will be charged and receive a written or video lesson in its place (in person makeup lessons are subject to the instructors availability).
WHAT AGES STUDENTS CAN ENROLL IN LESSONS?
Markee accepts students ages 6 and up for most lessons. Voice students typically start at a slightly later age (8 or 9) since their vocal cords are more mature.
CAN I CHANGE THE DATE, TIME, OR DURATION OF MY LESSON?
Absolutely! Just contact Markee 24 hours in advance and let them know what you want to do.
AM I REQUIRED TO TAKE A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF LESSONS EACH MONTH?
We recommend you take one lesson per week. However, we do give you the flexibility of learning at your own pace, so it is completely up to you how many lessons you would like to take each month.
WHAT WILL I LEARN IN MY LESSON?
At Markee, every lesson is customized to your needs. You will work with your coach to develop a lesson plan suited to meet your specific goals. As long as you take lessons, you will learn exactly what you set out to learn.
HOW LONG WILL I HAVE TO TAKE LESSONS?
The number of lessons you take will depend on your specific goals, how often you are able to practice, and how often you take lessons. Some students take lessons for months and others for years. You ultimately make that decision based on what you want to accomplish.
HOW LONG UNTIL I SEE SOME RESULTS?
The cool part is that you control your own results! If you put effort into your lessons, you will definitely see improvement. After each lesson, your coach/instructor will send you a lesson success recap. This document or discussion will show you exactly what you covered in the prior lesson, what you did well with, and what you should practice for the next lesson.
