FAQ's about Lessons:
Where are lessons offered?
** Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, lessons are ONLY being offered online at this time.
If the student lives near Irondale, AL and is able/willing to drive to the BBeck percussion studio lessons are held in person. If the student is not local, lessons can be held online via Skype. This allows students from all across the country to take lessons and work toward their percussion goals.
When is the payment due?
Payment is due prior to or during the scheduled lesson time. All lessons can be paid via PayPal, Venmo or Cash. If the payment is not received before the lesson begins, the instructor reserves the right to cancel the lesson.
Where are lessons located?
Lessons are held in our percussion studio, located in Irondale, AL. If the student is not local, lessons can be held via Skype or Zoom.
If I need to cancel a lesson, will I still be charged?
We understand that things do come up and sometimes schedules need to be adjusted. While we will make every effort to reschedule with you, the student will be charged for lessons that are cancelled within 24 hours of the scheduled lesson time. It is the responsibility of the student to contact their private instructor and reschedule their lesson prior to this 24-hour time frame.
Are students required to buy anything for their lessons?
Students are asked to purchase specific items needed for their lessons but will not be told to buy anything not required to fulfill their specific needs. For example, students may need to buy sticks, mallets, method books, sheet music, etc.
BBeck Percussion does provide the instruments necessary to fulfill the lesson. This saves students money by not requiring them to purchase expensive instruments.
*Students who are taking lessons are encouraged to purchase a practice pad to assist with at home practice. BBeck Percussion endorses ProLogix Percussion practice pads due to the high quality of the product being sold and the durability. Ask your instructor which pad best fits your specific needs!
