Studio Policies Registration 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. Payments 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. Attendance 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. Showcases 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.
