Students must be age 14 or older to begin private lessons, with some exceptions. There will be opportunities for younger student workshops in the future, to be announced. Lesson Cancellations, Make-ups, & Refund policy:
If you need to cancel a lesson, you must contact me via email or phone at least 24 hours before the scheduled lesson in order to receive a make-up lesson. Payments for lessons are monthly and for 4-5 at a time (depending on how many weeks are in the given month) but do not constitute a ‘punch-pass.' This means that if lessons were not used during the month and are eligible for a make-up, we will schedule the make-up lessons separately from the following month’s payment schedule. Unused lessons do not 'roll over' into the next month.
Severe Weather: If severe weather prevents you from making a lesson, you are due a make-up lesson.
Changing your regular lesson time to a new regular time: You may find it necessary to change your regular time at some point during the year. However, please try to choose a lesson time that you can commit to. A full class can make it a challenge to arrange for this. Students are permitted up to 2 make-up lessons per term.
Teacher Cancellation: If for any reason I have to cancel a lesson I will make every effort to make it up. If that is not possible, you will receive a refund.
Students leaving the studio are responsible for payment through their most recent lesson only. Any lessons paid for but not used, will be refunded.
There will be a $20 late fee charged for lesson payments over 7 days late. Please mail your check or deliver check or cash by hand at your lesson.
If you are 15 minutes late for your lesson and I have not heard from you, this counts as a no-show.
