Lesson Policies

Tuesday, September 12, 2017


  • Enrollment in private lessons is on a monthly subscription basis and requires a minimum of one lesson per week and a commitment of one month at a time.
  • Students are auto-billed on the 3rd of each month, for the full month ahead.
  • If a student begins lessons in the middle of a month, that month will be prorated and then billing will occur again at the beginning of the next month.
  • Lessons are given weekly on the same day and time each week.
  • The monthly fee (listed below) is the same every month even if there are 5 weeks in the month or your lesson falls on a holiday (Thanksgiving, Christmas, NYE, and July 4th).
  • Lessons take place even if regular school is closed except for the 4 holidays mentioned above.
  • Students may request 1 (one) make up lesson due to absence per month. Additional make ups are subject to $15 rescheduling fee.
  • Make-ups must be scheduled to take place within 30 days of absence.
  • A minimum of 4 hours notice is required for a missed lesson to qualify for a make-up.
  • No-shows or last-minute cancellations (less than 4 hours notice) result in a forfeited lesson without refund.
  • A teacher-caused absence will be credited towards the student’s account and will appear on the next month’s bill as a credit.
  • Lessons are 100% transferable to another student if for some reason prepaid lessons cannot be used by the original student.
  • No cash refunds can be given for lessons.
