Studio Policy

All students and parents agree to adhere to my studio policies. Below is my revised studio policy; these policies will be in place in Fall 2017.


Your payment serves as a reservation of your selected time slot in the teacher’s schedule.

Payment is due in advance and you are given the option to schedule by session or month. If you choose the session option, you receive a discount.

Payment is available by check, cash, or credit card. Check and cash payment receives a discount.

Refunds, Credits & Prorating

No refunds or credits are given.

Lesson packages may not be prorated after the first month.

Trial Lessons

I do not offer free trial lessons.


The schedule for piano lessons is based upon the majority of students’ availability in each of my service areas.

Due to teaching across multiple cities, I am unable to guarantee the same lesson spot year round.

Students enrolled by session are required to keep the same time slot the entire session. Monthly students have the option of changing their timeslot with 30 days of notice.

Discontinuing Lessons

Monthly students must give 30 day notice to change their lesson or discontinue lessons. If you do not give 30 day notice, you are expected to pay for the following month.

Students enrolled by session will forfeit their payment if they choose to discontinue lessons mid-session.


Parents agree to be “silent observers” in order to facilitate a functional learning environment.

The teacher reserves the right to end the lesson early if a student is acting inappropriately or disrespectfully.


A piano or teacher-approved keyboard is required to participate in piano lessons.

Please keep your piano clean at all times. Miss Christina is allergic to dust!

Please keep animals and other family members out of the room during your piano lesson in order to keep the lesson distraction free! I will happily pet your doggies (but not your cats or guinea pigs – ACHOO!), and chat with siblings, but not during your piano lesson!

Missed Lessons

If your teacher is sick or has a conflict with your lesson time, you will be offered a make-up lesson.

Makeup lessons are no longer be available for any cancellations by the student, except in extreme emergencies at the discretion of the teacher.

Holidays & Vacations

Piano lessons are not available on major holidays: New Years Eve/Day, Easter, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve Day and Christmas Day.

If you have enrolled by session, these holidays have been factored into your payment, and will not be provided makeup lessons. If you are monthly student, it will be necessary to make up these lessons (or you may forfeit them, if you so choose).

I’m sick!

If your child is too sick to attend school, your child is too sick for a piano lesson.

Out of respect for your teacher and the other families who take piano lessons, please cancel your lesson if you or anyone in your home is ill.

Miss Christina reserves the right to cancel the lesson upon arrival if it is discovered that there is illness (fever, vomiting/digestive issues, communicable skin rashes, and excessive coughing) at your home.
