Studio Policy

All students and parents agree to adhere to the studio policy.

These policies are strictly enforced in order to give the best lesson experience possible.

Payment

Our studio operates on a tuition basis.

Tuition payment reserves a recurring appointment on our studio calendar. Tuition is due in full and in advance in order to reserve your appointment.

Tuition is due by the 25th of each month, for the following month, except for special packages and workshops.  If your payment is late, there is a late fee of $30/student.

We accept check, cash, or credit card. Credit card payment must be made via our secure online billing system. We do not accept Venmo or e-checks through PayPal.

Student Attendance

Students are expected to attend lessons consistently on their  scheduled lesson day and time, except when they are not feeling well.

Illness

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, DO NOT BRING SICK CHILDREN TO OUR STUDIO.

We reserve the right to cancel the lesson upon your arrival if you or your child is visibly ill, or if the child has stayed home from school (fever, vomiting/digestive issues, communicable skin rashes, and excessive coughing are all reasons to cancel).

Makeup credits are offered in the case of illness and extreme emergency. Makeup credits allow you to reschedule that lesson.

Makeup Lessons/Rescheduling

Rescheduling is not available for lessons missed due to vacations, sports, open house, or other activities.

Missed Lessons by the Teacher

If your teacher is unable to attend a scheduled lesson, you will be offered an online lesson or appropriate options to make up for the missed lesson.

Holidays

Piano lessons are not available on major holidays. All holidays have been factored into tuition and will not receive makeup lessons. View our calendar here.

Piano is not Childcare

Piano lessons are not childcare. I agree to pick my child up promptly at the end of the lesson. Repeated late pickups will incur an extra charge on my account.

Piano Lessons and classes are not eligible for tax deductions. We do not give students W-9 forms, and do not accept payment as a 1099 contractor.

Discontinuing Lessons

30 day notice of discontinuation is required in order to not be charged for the following month. If you choose to discontinue class, no refunds will be given.

Conduct

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

The teacher reserves the right to end the lesson (with no makeup lesson or refund) if a student or parent is acting inappropriately or disrespectfully.

No Refunds, Credits, or Prorating

We do not offer refunds or credits on missed lessons.

Current Safety & Health Policies

Coming to your lesson knowingly infected or having been exposed to COVID-19 is grounds for immediate and permanent expulsion from the studio with no refund.
