Family & Multi-Instrument Discount:

Attendance:

Your lesson time, teacher and studio space are reserved for you each week and you are responsible for attendance at all lessons. Tuition is not credited for missed lessons but MAKEUPS ARE ENCOURAGED. Make sure to schedule other activities around your music lessons! I continue lessons even in the summer months. The studio is closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years day and July 4th. All other holidays the studio is open. If for any reason the instructor has to miss a lesson, you will not be charged for that time.

 

Illness:

We regret that sometimes a student may become ill and will not be able to attend a lesson but unfortunately that leaves the time slot/studio vacant and the lesson cannot be credited, however you may schedule a makeup lesson. Please be considerate of yourself and others and do not come to your lesson seriously ill.


Lesson Practice:

Consistant practice may be challenging at times, but is an important part in the success of learning to play an instrument. Our students are required to practice at least 60 minutes per week. Additional practice time is always encouraged! A practice sheet "calendar" is provided to help keep track of your time.

 

Terminating Lessons:

30 days notice must be given if you are terminating lessons. There are no refunds after tuition and enrollment fee have been paid.

 

The instructor reserves the right to change policy & rates at any time.
