Lesson Policies - 2015


  • Payments are made in person or through PayPal online. Checks are not accepted.

  • Monthly payments are due on the first scheduled lesson of each month, whether there is a lesson or not. Payments made after the 15th of the month will be assessed a late fee of $10.00.

  • From September 1st through May 31st, the charge for monthly lessons is a flat rate that will not change, regardless whether there are 5 lessons in the month or less due to holidays. The result is an average of 4 lessons per month. There will be no deductions from the flat fee for any missed lessons.

  • Any private/semi-private lesson missed by a student may be made up at a later time, but ONLY if the teacher is notified 24 hours in advance.

  • If a private/semi-private lesson is missed FOR ANY REASON without the 24-hour notification it will be considered a forfeited lesson and will not be made up or refunded. Same day notifications are appreciated for politeness.

  • Any private/semi-private lesson missed by the teacher will be made up at a later time.

  • During the summer months (June, July and August) students will be charged each month for however many lessons occur on the calendar. A total of 3 lessons may be deducted from summer lesson fees to accommodate for vacation schedules.

  • Students missing 4 or more lessons throughout the summer without payment run the risk of losing their appointment time when they return to their lessons.
