The Studio Policy outlines responsibilities, tuition, lesson scheduling and required equipment. Rewarding lessons originate with a firm commitment from the Student, Parent and Teacher.
Tuition, Attendance & Lesson Times
Lessons are scheduled for 45-minutes or 1-hour. Tuition is due at the first lesson of each quarter for the three month period. Mutually agreed upon lesson times and dates for the quarter will be set up prior to this first lesson.
Missing lessons: you can miss one lesson per quarter for any reason (illness, vacation, etc.) The tuition for this lesson is forwarded to the next quarter, if you notify me at least 24 hours in advance, or you will be charged for the lesson. After the first missed lesson, tuition is charged for the remaining missed lessons as the time is reserved for your child.
Emergencies: If there is an emergency, I will understand. Communicate the situation with me as soon as possible. Emergencies include: hospital, death in family, etc.
Policy on illness: if you are well enough to attend school, you are well enough to attend your clarinet lesson.
Because I am both a teacher and performer, my schedule occasionally changes and I may have to cancel a lesson. If this happens, I will let you know with as much advance notice as possible. The tuition will be refunded or credited to the next quarter.
