Lessons will take place at my home studio at 6000 Laird. Because the studio is in my home, students should only enter after knocking and being allowed inside. If you happen to arrive early for your lesson, please wait until your scheduled lesson time before knocking on the door. The waiting room is for parents to use while their children are learning. Students must provide their own instrument. If you are dropping your child off for a lesson, please arrive promptly at the end of their lesson to pick them up. The free introductory hour lesson applies to one lesson regardless of how long a session you book (so if you book a half-hour session, you may not book a second free half-hour session).
Tuition is due at the final lesson of each calendar month for the upcoming month. If at that time, you know you will not be able to attend a lesson in the next month, inform me and its cost will be deducted from the tuition. Payment can be made via cash, check, credit card, or PayPal. Credit card and PayPal carry a 3% fee. All Payments are non-refundable except in the case of a cancellation on behalf of the teacher.
In the event that the student cannot make a lesson, the student/parent must book a make-up lesson online six hours previous to their currently scheduled lesson. If a student does not/cannot book a make-up lesson, cancels outright or fails to book the make-up lesson six hours in advance, the fee for the missed lesson will be forfeited. A lesson may only be re-scheduled once and must be scheduled for a slot within two weeks of the missed lesson. If a student cannot make their make-up lesson for any reason, the lesson will be forfeited. Lesson fees can not be “pushed back” to the following the month and a regularly scheduled lesson may not be skipped in favor of a make-up.
PLEASE DO NOT TO CALL, E-MAIL OR TEXT ME TO RESCHEDULE YOUR LESSON, as I do not personally handle rescheduling. All rescheduling should be done online through the “Book A Lesson” page. If you need to outright cancel a lesson for any reason, please e-mail or text me notification, but please understand that I may not respond as I am busy teaching or working on other things. Simply assume I received the message. Finally, DO NOT No-Call, No-Show. That’s a huge bummer.
If you refer a new student to me, and they who sign up for at least a month worth of lessons, I will deduct half of their first month’s tuition from your next month’s tuition. To be clear, if they sign up for a month of hour long lesson, you’ll get $100 dollars deducted from your tuition. If they sign up for a month’s worth of half-hour lessons, you’ll get a $50 deduction.
