How does an "Ongoing" course work?

Meets on a weekly schedule, join any week, no need to catch up on previous material
Live video chats, recorded and monitored for safety and quality
Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher
Automatic payment every Sunday, cancel any time
Great for clubs and for practicing skills

I am a professionally trained flutist with experience performing in various settings such as concert band, orchestra, theater, marching band, and solo performance. I have taught private lessons for over a decade and continue to perform in my community as an active musician. I am a certified K-12 teacher and have taken additional classes on small/one-on-one coaching sessions. 
Students will leave each lesson with a self-made and agreed upon goal to meet before our next lesson. They will be provided with the feedback and resources necessary to aid them in reaching their goal. There will be no penalties for a goal that is not "perfected," but sincere effort (practice time!) must be seen. If it is apparent a student is not practicing or making progress, I will set the weekly goals.  
Additional apps, resources, and supplies will be discussed in lessons and completely free of charge. This might include a specific tuning application, an online archive, etc..
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
We will utilize multiple etudes, books, and literature. This will be provided by the instructor (or discussed for certain advanced players).
