A couple months ago I developed a Studio Etiquette. With a large number of students and their family members coming and going every week, I decided that it was time I put something in writing. It has worked very well!
My Studio Etiquette is different from Studio Policy. It does not deal with payment, cancelation, or make-ups, but addresses student and family behavior at the studio. Many of my students are very young, with even younger siblings, and it was becoming more and more frustrating and time consuming to clean the studio at the end of each teaching day, not to mention wipe off ghastly finger marks off my beloved piano! Since implementing the Studio Etiquette, my cleaning time has reduced, and I am much happier at the end of a busy teaching day. I have fine tuned the details, and would like to share my updated list with the MTH community. [···]
