Studio Guidelines


  • Instructional lessons are 30 minutes each.
  • Please be considerate of other students and arrive on time for your lesson.
  • You must give 24 hours notice if you are going to miss a lesson.  Make-up lessons may be arranged during the week as time slots open up.
    • Phone numbers for giving notice:
      Robert Fumo – 510-410-762
      Mike Braun   – 510-606-5030
  • If you give less than 24 hours notice or if you give no notice, the lesson cost is forfeited.
  • Please make sure you bring your music folder, papers or music book(s) to each lesson.
  • To maximize musical instruction time, tune your instrument before the lesson starts in the Lobby area.
  • In order to get the most benefit from musical instruction, you should practice at least once per day even if for only 20 or 30 minutes.
