At least one lesson per week is required. Fees are due at the 1st lesson of the month in cash, check or pay online. If it’s more convenient for you to pay tuition several months or a semester at a time, please let me know.
Please plan to arrive a few minutes before your scheduled lesson. Late students cannot be guaranteed a full lesson.
Your lesson time is reserved exclusively for you. I will promise do offer one make-up lesson each semester. Regardless of a lesson is canceled 24-hours in advance or with weeks notification, ONLY ONE make-ups can be offered. All of the make-up lesson schedules will be arranged during the first week after the studio recital. We won’t have lessons during the Spring and Fall break.
A lesson canceled by the teacher for any reason will be rescheduled or credit will be given towards the next month’s tuition. Exogenous reasons such as weather may lead to cancellation of a lesson, and the credit will be given towards the next month’s tuition, too.
Group lessons will happen once a month during the academic school year. These group lessons are not extra-curricular and are mandatory to attend. Group lessons have many benefits that private lessons do not offer, thus please make every effort to be available for them. In addition, we will usually have time after groups for students to socialize with each other and families.
There will be at least one studio recital per year, and all students are highly encouraged to perform. Each student will be charged a small amount of fee to cover rental space and piano accompanist. Specifies will be provided approaching the recital date.
A parent or a guardian is expected to attend every lesson and write the notes of the lesson concepts if the student is under 10 yo. Parents function as an assistant teacher at home who is very important for every child. In addition, everyone is welcome to the observation lesson.
