2017-18 Private Lesson Policies
In order to make our time together more productive, I have established the following policies:
SEPT-JUNE TUITION: $1100.00. Tuition covers preparation and lesson time for weekly lessons (33 lessons total). Four weeks throughout the year will be devoted to Group Lessons; the rest will be private lessons (see GROUP LESSONS below). Families should expect a tuition increase every two years appropriate to cost of living increases and services offered.
Year: One payment of $1100 due on September 1.
Semester: Two payments of $550 due on September 1 and February 1.
Bi-Monthly: Five payments of $220 due on September 1, November 1, January 1, March 1, and May 1.
Month: Ten payments of $110 due by the first lesson of each month. Some months contain 3 lessons, others 4 or 5. Regardless of how many lessons, the monthly tuition will not change.
NO LESSONS (dates TBA)
There will be no lessons on the following dates. The cost of these missed lessons has already been deducted from the tuition fee:
School Vacation Weeks
Three Discretionary Weeks: The lesson calendar plans for 36 weeks of scheduled lessons. This includes 3 discretionary weeks which I may use at any time during the year. I will guarantee each student 33 lessons during the year, and will make up any lessons (more than these 3 weeks) that I need to cancel. Except in the case of emergency or sudden illness, I will give at least 24 hours cancellation notice.
Students may sign up for optional lessons in the summer. We will have a few weeks off during the month of August.
If the Teacher Cancels a Lesson: The “No Lesson” dates listed above are calculated in to the yearly tuition and you are not charged for those dates. If I need to cancel an additional lesson, I will schedule a make-up lesson.
