1. Your lesson day and time is reserved for you each week from September to June (lessons are year round but summer policies will change). There will be no lessons on these dates:
Thursday, October 31st
Thursday, November 28th
Tuesday, December 24th
Wednesday, December 25th
Tuesday, December 31th
Wednesday, January 1st
Monday, May 25th
*Additional dates may be added
You are not responsible for payment if: your lesson falls on any of these dates, if I ever need to cancel your lesson or for inclement weather.
2. If you need to miss a lesson for any reason, please whenever possible, try to give me 24 hour notice by email or text. You are required to do a makeup when you miss a lesson. Sometimes makeups are just not possible. Therefore, during the school year, you can miss up to three lessons without doing a makeup. After three missed lessons without a makeup, payment will be required for all additional missed lessons in order to maintain your reserved lesson spot (from September to June).
3. Payment for at least four lessons at a time by cash or check is preferred. You will be notified by email or text when payment is due again.
4. Please arrive promptly to your lesson. If you are late, your lesson time can only be extended by 5 minutes.
Here are some tips to get the most out of your music lessons:
