POLICIES

Lesson Schedule

Weekly private lessons are offered in 45 or 60-minute sessions. There will be no lessons on the 5th week of the month. Please visit my website calendar regularly for scheduling updates.


Tuition

Tuition is due the 1st of each month. Please set up automatic payments through your bank. Monthly tuition is ALWAYS the same regardless of holidays, student vacations, or cancellations. You will receive a make-up lesson or a credit if I need to cancel.


Holidays

My studio will be closed on the following dates. Tuition remains the same during these months. You can view this schedule on my website calendar.

  • Labor Day
  • Halloween
  • Thanksgiving
  • Winter Break (the last week of December)
  • Easter
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day


Cancellations

I post available make-up slots on my website calendar. Make-up lessons are for sickness and emergencies ONLY.


Trading Lessons

You will receive my lesson schedule and student contact info so that you can trade lesson times with other families. Trading lessons is a good option for scheduling conflicts and vacations.


Summer Lessons

You can choose to stop lessons in the summer, but I will need to fill your time slot and put you on my waiting list. Students who pay for their time slot through the summer are guaranteed a spot in the fall.


Practice Requirements

A minimum of 4 days a week is required of all students. Students who are consistently unprepared may be dropped from study.
BEGINNING LEVEL: 20 minute daily minimum
ELEMENTARY LEVEL: 30 minute daily minimum
INTERMEDIATE LEVEL: 45 minute daily minimum
ADVANCED LEVEL: 60 minute daily minimum


Parent Involvement

Parents are welcome to attend lessons, but should reserve questions and comments for the first five minutes. Parents and families may quietly use the waiting area or drop off students. Students under age 7 need to have a parent present at lessons and help with practice at home.
