2016-17 Private Lesson Policies
In order to make our time together more productive, I have established the following policies:
SEPT-JUNE TUITION: $1060.00. Tuition covers preparation and lesson time for weekly lessons (35 lessons total). Four weeks throughout the year will be devoted to Group Lessons; the rest will be private lessons (see GROUP LESSONS below). Tuition for duet lessons (2 students at a time) is $795/student. Families should expect a tuition increase every two years appropriate to cost of living increases and services offered.
Year: One payment of $1060 due on September 1.
Semester: Two payments of $530 due on September 1 and February 1.
Bi-Monthly: Five payments of $212 due on September 1, November 1, January 1, March 1, and May 1.
Month: Ten payments of $106 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
Two Discretionary Weeks (To be cancelled at the teacher’s discretion due to illness, travel, family matters, or unexpected conflicts. 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 July. There will be no lessons 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 either schedule a make-up lesson within 30 days, or I will refund the cost of that lesson.
