Studio Policies

Registration

  • Students must submit a signed registration form 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. We will do our 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 options must be discussed in advance.
  • The studio accepts Zelle electronic transfers, personal checks, cash, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. 
  • Returned checks are subject to a $25 fee.
  • When a student leaves the studio for any reason, outstanding balances are due immediately.

Attendance

  • Each student is entitled to two rescheduled lessons per semester. 48-hr notice is required. 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 be taught via FaceTime.

Showcases

  • Our virtual showcases are shared on YouTube.
  • We offer two a year for prepared students, one in the fall and one in the spring. Participation is optional.
  • Our annual awards program is part of the spring showcase. Honor students are announced and trophies given.
