Policies and Fees

School age students: Enrollment is for the entire school year-- September through May.  You will have an assigned weekly lesson time.  All lessons are 40 minutes.

School Year Tuition:
Lessons are paid for in advance, either by the month or by the semester. 

2019-2020: Tuition during the school year will be 9 equal payments of $155.00 per month ($145.00 for sibling), due on the first lesson of each month. (With 34 lessons per year, this amounts to around $41.00 per lesson.) My studio will be closed for Thanksgiving, Xmas/New Year’s and Spring Break. 

 If you prefer to pay by the semester, the price is $697.50 for first child,  $652.50 for sibling. Payments are due on the first lesson, and in mid January.

Missed lessons

  • The lesson must be paid for whether or not you attend, because you are paying to reserve my time, which I have set aside for your lesson.

  • Missed lessons may sometimes be made up if I have a cancellation from another student at a time that works for you. If you know in advance that you are going to miss a lesson, please let me know as soon as possible. That makes it easier to “swap”.

  • I schedule one “make up day” towards the end of the winter semester, and a make up week, at the end of May--for anyone who has missed lessons.

  • If I miss a lesson, it will always be made up at a mutually agreeable time.

  • There are no make ups for missed make up lessons!

Adults:  Morning & early afternoon lessons are available on a flexible schedule. $40 per lesson. Discount available for advance purchase of ten or more lessons.

Summer lessons:
During the summer, I offer flexible lessons times for all ages.  Discount available for advance purchase of four or more lessons.

I will purchase piano music as needed for each student, depending on their needs.  Please reimburse me by the following lesson.  Please 
bring a notebook to each lesson for recording assignments
