Studio Policies


  • Students must submit a signed registration form for each session.
  • Any student who wishes to cease private study must give at least two weeks’ notice.
  • Students with a regularly scheduled lesson time are committing to that time for the duration of a semester. I will do my best to accommodate major schedule changes at the beginning of each session.


  • Private lessons may be billed monthly, or tuition can be paid in full before the session begins.
  • Monthly payments are due on the first of every month. Other payment arrangements must be discussed in advance.
  • The studio accepts Zelle electronic transfers, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover.
  • When a student leaves the studio for any reason, outstanding balances are due immediately.


  • Each student is entitled to up to two rescheduled lessons per semester. 48-hr notice is required, but exceptions are made for sudden illness.
  • When no notice is provided prior to missing a lesson, the student will be charged for the time, and rescheduling is not possible.
  • All lessons missed due to instructor illness will be rescheduled.
  • When inclement weather is forecast, lessons will still be taught via FaceTime unless power outages deem that impossible.


  • Our virtual showcases are shared on YouTube.
  • We offer one each spring for prepared students. Participation is optional.
  • Our Annual awards program is part of the spring showcase.
