Private Lessons

We do not require long term contracts, but we do require a 30 day written or email notice prior to cancellation. We charge a flat rate on a monthly basis.

We charge for the entire month, and do not pro-rate months for any reason. Major Holidays are accounted into our fees and are not made up.   Our studio is closed on the last week of each year which is accounted into this flat rate.   No make ups or credits are offered for these holidays.

If you are going to be on an extended vacation or have to reschedule an extended period, you may hold your spot by putting a one month deposit down – which will hold your spot until you come back.   That deposit will then be applied towards that first month.   This deposit is non refundable.

Late Fees: all payments are due by the 10th of each month, otherwise a flat rate of $10.00 will be automatically applied to your invoice.

The monthly tuition includes private lessons and voluntary participation in two recitals per year.
