2019-2020 Policy and Payment information
tO BEGIN WITH....WHEN A STUDENT SIGNS UP FOR PRIVATE LESSONS, HE (OR SHE) WILL CHOOSE
EITHER A 1/2 HR. OR A 1 HR. weekly LESSON. The next step is to arrange for a day and time to start.
THAT TIME SLOT WILL BE SAVED and will belong to that student.
The piano student usually sits on the bench at the piano while the teacher sits in a chair beside him.
A voice student will probably be standing near the microphone and sometimes at the piano
IF THE STUDENT IS YOUNG, A PARENT MAY WANT TO "SIT IN" ON THE FIRST LESSON. That's understandable.
i will provide all of the books and supplies NEEDED for new students.
Piano students will be expected to own a keyboard....if not right away...then SOON.
Practice time should be a priority and should be set up for the same time, and for 30 minutes every day.
Once that time is set, there should be no flexibility. Stick to it every day!
I teach piano on a year round basis
No lessons on July 4th, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New YEAr's Day
No lessons on Saturday or Sunday.
Business, as usual, ON Monday Holidays, School vacations and school cancellations.
no makeups or deduCTIONS for ANY OF THE ABove.
During the 8 or 9 weeks of the summer, I would advise you to take no more than 2 weeks away from your music lessons. too much may be forgotten. It's discouraging for the student (and, for me) to have to go back over past lessons, instead of venturing into exciting new musical challenges.
If, for any reason, a student is absent for more than 2 consecutive weeks, i WELCOME THEIR RETURN, BUT their time slot may be lost..... unless other payment arrangements have been made with me.
i offer 3 makeups per year, per family.
A makeup lesson is used when you missed your regularly scheduled lesson, and it could not be re-scheduled for another day in the same week.
24 hrs. cancellation notice is required for all missed lessons
If you are absent and if I am not notified (no show), there will be no makeup lesson... you will be charged for that missed lesson.
Do not deduct FOR missed lessonS from your monthly bill.
Monthly payments are due on the first lesson day of every month.
pLEASE PAY BY CHECK OR BY CASH.
YOUR BILL WILL BE FOR EITHER 4 OR 5 WEEKS ON A MONTHLY BASIS.
Please do not deduct missed lesson amounts from you regular monthly payment (see Make ups)
