TUITION

Tuition reserves the student's weekly time slot in the teacher's schedule throughout the semester and is required regardless of attendance. This provides financial ease and clarity for for everyone. It should be clearly understood that although the tuition is paid monthly, it is not pro-rated if a lesson is missed.

ATTENDANCE POLICY

This policy is in place to protect the student, the parent, and the teacher, and serves to ensure that lessons run smoothly and without conflict. Remember that, while taken seriously, music lessons are meant to be enjoyable as well as educational.  Your lesson time is your weekly reservation. My schedule is extremely demanding, and expenses are incurred to maintain the schedules I have set.

 

Lessons will be held weekly during the school year  (September -May). Summer private lessons are scheduled a la carte while both the student and teacher are in town.

WHAT WILL BE MADE UP

 

If you or I cannot attend because of illness or emergency in the family.

 

No work/no school = no lesson.

If you /I have a conflict with a seldom occurring event i.e. school concert, audition /try-out, wedding, graduation, funeral 

 

In the event of inclement weather, lessons can be cancelled and made up at a mutually agreeable time.  Please use your discretion to determine your travelling safety.

 

Group classes cancelled by the teacher

 

 

 

WHAT WILL NOT MADE UP

 

The missed portion of your late arrival.

 

Lessons cancelled with fewer than 24 hours notice.

 

Lessons missed due to:

  • Doctor appointments

  • Birthday parties

  • Organized sports/groups

  • Other social functions

  • Individual absences from group classes

WITHDRAWAL

Students should consult with the teacher if they are considering discontinuing lessons to make sure there are not areas that can be resolved.  If the student still decides to discontinue lessons, one month's notice is required.  The lessons remaining in that month will be finished out.  There are no refunds for withdrawals.
