Lessons are paid in advance for each month.
The tuition is due by the first lesson of each month.Students will receive an invoice by e-mail. Cash, checks, and credit cards are accepted methods of payment. .
All the studying materials will be purchased separately and are not included in the tuition.
Students are committed to taking lessons throughout the school term (August-June). 30 days notice must be given prior to termination of lessons.
Any lesson that I have to cancel will be made up or a credit will be given.
No payment credit or makeup lessons will be provided for students who miss lessons for any reason.
·If a student is unable to come to the lesson, there are a few options:
A video lesson can be set up via Facetime or Skype at a regular lesson time
The teacher will record a short educational video for the student for viewing that week
A phone call with a parent about student's progress during the lesson time
Try to choose a lesson time in which you feel confident. Please understand that the tuition you pay reserves an exclusive weekly time in my schedule. Unlike a doctor or a hairdresser, I cannot resell that time nor can I create extra teaching time in which to give lessons.
ASSIGNMENTS AND PRACTICE TIME
It is expected that students will practice regularly and be prepared for lessons as assigned. Piano study involves the art of developing self-discipline as well as developing the skills for performance
Students should always bring their piano books and other studying materials to each lesson.
Parents should help the student arrange a regular practice time free from interruptions and distractions.
The instrument a student practices on should be tuned regularly.
Regrettably, I will have to dismiss a student if any of these circumstances occur:
Failure to pay tuition on time
Failure to follow practice as instructed
Lack of progress due to insufficient practice or unfulfilled requirements
There will be two student recitals every year, one at the end of each semester.All students are encouraged to perform. This is a non-competitive event and it offers a great opportunity for everybody to hear other students of different ages play pieces of different styles, character, and levels. It also encourages the students to work towards a goal. For students, who are preparing for exams or music festivals, the recitals will provide an excellent opportunity to perform their repertoire.
