Sharing a requirement-based success story. I had a family recently whose two children never practiced consistently since they started. I told parents and children consistently the past week before spring break and week following that it wasn’t a problem, but that it wasn’t going to work for me. The dad talked over me repeatedly, told me he “didn’t have time to be a babysitter,” and lied about the amount of practice time that had been happening. I opened my inbox this morning to find a very polite email that they were no longer going to take lessons. No tension or bad reviews exchanged, nothing! It took a lot of energy but it was worth it.

So good for your studio in the long run. You will have a reputation of sticking to your guns, and because of that you will produce very successful students who will unintentionally do your marketing for you!
