Music & Material

Each guardian or student is responsible for paying for the cost of any music and supplementary materials (e.g. metronome, flash cards, theory workbook, etc.). This cost is in addition to the fixed session fee. The student will either be given a list of materials needed or the option—if agreed upon by instructor—to have the materials purchased on behalf of the student, and an itemized list including the total amount due will be provided to the student or guardian.

Practice

In order to receive the maximum benefit possible from scheduled sessions, it is essential each student spends fully devoted time outside the scheduled sessions practicing. It is the student’s responsibility to regularly create time for personal study and practice at home.

Recitals, Performances & Services

Periodically throughout the year, students will have an opportunity to perform in front of their peers during scheduled recitals and other public settings. Students are not required to attend these events; however, students are strongly encouraged to participate in these opportunities.

WORSHIP STUDENT CHECKPOINTS

Goals for Students who are Learning Worship Music

What are Worship Student Checkpoints?

At Lakewood Music Institute, we want to make sure that students who desire to play their instrument in a modern worship setting will be fully prepared. To accomplish this, we have created a set of checkpoints that we expect our worship students to achieve through their lessons at LMI. The knowledge acquired after completing these checkpoints will enable students to play music on their focus instruments within any modern music environment. An example of a modern music environment is the Lakewood Worship ministry.
