Lessons will be held weekly for the fall semester (September through December) and the spring semester (January through May). Summer lessons are available depending on travel and concert schedule.
Tuition reserves the student's weekly time slot in the teacher's schedule throughout the year and is required regardless of attendance.
30 min. lesson = $35
45 min. lesson = $50
60 min. lesson = $70
Tuition is paid monthly at the first lessons of the month and is calculated by multiplying the lesson rate by 4 weeks (3 or 5 weeks for certain months). Additional lessons are allowed based on the teacher's availability.
The student will contact the teacher by phone if they expect to be late for a scheduled lesson.
If a student arrives after their scheduled lesson time has begun, the teacher will complete the lesson in the remaining portion of the time slot. Additional time for student tardiness is not guaranteed.
Students must cancel lessons by phone or email with at least 24 hours notice. Cancellations are considered excused for illness, family emergency, or severe weather ( school closures). Excused cancellations with sufficient notification will be given a make-up lesson within the month or lesson credit towards the following month. No-shows, or cancellations without sufficient notification will not be given make-up lessons or lesson credits.
The teacher may need to reschedule or cancel a lesson due to illness, family emergency, or performance engagements. In this case, the teacher will provide a make-up lesson within the month or lesson credit towards the following month.
Make-Up Lessons/Lesson Credits
Only 3 excused cancellations will be allowed per academic year. Excused cancellations will be given make-up lessons within the month or lesson credits towards the following month. If a student cannot attend a scheduled make-up lesson, the lesson will be considered forfeited. Make-up lessons are not guaranteed and are subject to availability. If a make-up lesson is not possible, a lesson credit will be applied toward the following month. After 3 excused cancellations, further cancelled lessons will be considered forfeited and will not be given make-up lessons, or lesson credits.
