As a matter of policy and everyone’s safety, Forbes Music requires that an adult be present (18+ yrs old) for any in-home lessons that involve children 17 years of age and younger. The adult is not required to be a parent or guardian, but can include nannies, house managers, neighbors, extended family, etc.
If a teacher shows up to a home where no adult is present, teachers are asked to politely decline an invitation to enter into the house, and patiently wait outside or in their car until an adult shows up. The recommended waiting period is similar to that suggested when no one is home.
It is suggested that teachers send a message to the parent, guardian, or primary contact person, to alert them that no adult is home, and unfortunately no lesson can take place without the required supervision.
