What is Your Cancellation Policy?
If you will not be attending a scheduled lesson, you need to give at least 24 hours notice. With notice, we can arrange for a lesson later in the week.
If I need to postpone a lesson I will inform you at least a week in advance and credit that lesson to your next month’s lessons.
Holidays When Classes Are Not Offered
December 31- January 1st
What Are Your Payment Options and Policies?
Tuition payments are due at the first lesson of the month, for the whole month. A 5% per week late fee is charged for late payments.
Payments can be made by cash, PayPal, Apple Pay, or credit card. Paypal, Apple Pay, and credit card payments are subject to an additional fee for the service charge (2.9%). The fee will be charged to you on the following month’s statement.
Parents or younger children are encouraged to attend their child’s lesson and listen in. Parents can then help their children while they are practicing during the week with what was taught during the lessons.
Practice sessions should ideally last for 30 minutes a day for younger students and upwards of an hour for older advanced students. For younger children who have trouble focusing, a few 10-minute sessions per day are helpful. Practice should start with a warm-up of exercises/scales and then progress to working on pieces. It is helpful for guitar students to practice hands separately and to break songs into small sections which can be repeated until mastered.
Guitar students need to purchase a set of guitar books when they begin classes. New sets will need to be purchased as the student progresses and completes their current book set. There may be additional required materials such as supplemental exercise, theory or song books which will be assigned as needed.
Students can be dismissed from the studio for any of the following reasons: inadequate practice, frequent cancellation or missed lessons, incomplete written homework, inappropriate behavior or failure to pay tuition.
Termination of Lessons
Situations arise in which students decide to discontinue their lessons, Please inform me before the next payment period. Improper cancellation will result in continued lesson billing for the next month.
How Can I Earn a Free Lesson?
You can earn free lessons. When you refer someone to me for lessons, after they pay for their first month, you’ll receive a free lesson.
