...and education is an art.

Policies & Procedures


Admittance Policies

Students are not screened before being admitted to the studio and admittance is not discriminatory. Students will not be granted nor denied admittance in regard to race, religion, color, creed, national or ethnic origin.


A student may withdraw from lessons at the end of any quarter, which may or may not fall at the end of the month. A two week written notice is required if a student plans to withdraw from lessons before the end of the school year, including, but not limited to withdrawal at the end of a quarter. Failure to give two weeks written notice will result in a bill for a regular partial quarter payment, and student must re-apply should they desire to begin lessons again at any point in time. Any monies paid toward lessons will not be refunded.

Payments and fees

Payment due dates

Private lessons

Lesson payments are always due on the 20th of each month. Lesson payments are broken into three monthly payments per quarter and are due as follows: Fall quarter: August 20, September 20, October 20; Winter quarter: November 20, December 20, January 20; Spring quarter: February 20, March 20, April 20; Summer quarter: May 20, June 20, July 20.

Group classes

Group class payments will be due on noted dates based on the individual class.

Late / returned check fees

Late fees will be assessed on the 21st of any given month a payment has not been made. The late fee is $25.

Returned check fees will be assessed for NSF or any other non-payment of a check. The returned check fee is $35 plus any additional charges incurred from my bank.

Payment methods

Lesson or group fees may be paid with cash or check only. Credits cards are not accepted at this time.

Materials fee

The first payment of the year will now have a $10 materials fee per student (note: not per family). This will only scratch the surface of the amount of money spent throughout each year on new music and plays to keep my library up to date. In the event that a student does not begin in the September, the fee will be added to their first lesson payment.

Recital and competition fees

The recital fee for private students is $20/student. If a group class is scheduled to perform at a recital, their recital fee is built into the class fee (and is non-refundable should that student be unavailable to perform). Competition fees are on an individual basis.

Lesson termination

Please note that if you decide to terminate lessons, your last lesson may not be the last week of the month, but rather the last day of the quarter (e.g. if your last payment will be made on October 20, your last lesson will be November 18).

Any monies paid are non-refundable.
