Tuition & Attendance

  • If the student misses a lesson for any reason or if the instructor cancels unexpectedly, a make-up lesson credit will be issued and can be scheduled within 30 days.  (In the summer months of Jun-Aug, make-ups will be allowed until the end of August.)

  • As I have a full teaching schedule, make-up lesson time slots are NOT guaranteed.

  • When the instructor takes leave that is planned in advance (State & National Music Teacher Conferences, vacation, administrative days, etc.), a make-up lesson will not be scheduled.  

Frequently Asked Questions

Q:  What if I will be missing several consecutive lessons (summer travel, etc.)?

A:  You must still pay for the entire month.  You can schedule make-up lessons for the lessons you miss.

Q:  Why is it the same tuition per month even though some months have more lessons than others?

A:  It is an annual tuition split into 12 monthly payments rather than a per-lesson charge.  There are also other things rolled into tuition, such as performances and special topics workshops.

Q:  Do you offer 30-minute lessons?

A:  I do not because 30-minute lessons are generally not enough time to cover the core material in a weekly lesson!  30-minute lessons are optimal for young beginners under the age of 7, but unfortunately I am not accepting young beginners at this time.
