Studio Policy Statement 12/2015
Student - Centered Music is a year-round program of music study. When you commit to our program, you are committing to the program for one year. Your word is considered a contract to us. The expectation is that you will honor your commitment. Our year starts August 1st and ends July 31st of the following year. We study approximately 48 weeks per year. We offer an open enrollment, so a new student may begin anytime during the yearly commitment.
Tuition is due on or before the 1st of each month. Tuition only covers instruction. If absent that day, or if the first lesson falls on a holiday or vacation period, please stop by the studio to deliver payment during the same week that tuition is due. Please do NOT mail your checks.
RECITAL PRODUCTION FEE:
$25-$40 per student covers all fees associated with the end of the year recital.
Disciplined attendance together with disciplined practice makes for optimum progress. Please make every effort to keep your appointment. If a lesson must be missed, twenty-four hours notice is appreciated whenever possible. Grace is given for sudden illness, family and work emergency; grace is extended for inclement weather and conflicting school events. Any missed lesson covered by grace may be rescheduled at the convenience of both student and teacher. There are NO refunds or credits for missed lessons. A cancelled make-up lesson will not be re-scheduled.
Student - Centered Music Programs is a year-round program of music study. Special and very flexible schedules make for a relaxed - but not lost - summer. Breaks in routine are created by vacations in and out of town or camps. Missed lessons may be made up at a leisurely pace, but subject to instructor availability.
