Thank you for reading my studio policies listed below! All of my policies regarding the organization of fees, payment and missed lessons are structured with care to provide a simpler and transparent relationship between the student and teacher. My goal in making fees and payment more seamless is to enable focusing on what matters most, the student's musical journey.
Private 30 minute lessons – $120 per month ($30 per lesson)
Private 45 minute lessons – $180 per month ($45 per lesson)
Private one hour lessons – $240 per month ($60 per lesson)
There are 40 lessons per school year (September till end of June) at a rate of $30, $45 or $60 per lesson (depending upon your desired class length). The “per lesson” fee is multiplied by 40 and then divided by 10 months of the school year. The fees are organized in this way so that payment is the same every month whether you begin lessons in September or midway through the year. This also helps to alleviate any difficulty for the parents or teacher in determining how many lessons the student will have each month. All studio holidays are not included into the total of 40 lessons per year. Lessons are scheduled to occur once a week.
Lesson fees are paid with monthly post-dated checks for the entire school year (September-June). However, if the student has not started lessons right in September, the monthly cost will be calculated based on the number of remaining lessons in the year. If for any reason, the student or teacher feels it is in the best interest of the student to discontinue lessons, the remaining post-dated cheques will be returned.
Reductions are not made for missed lessons but are recorded as a "make-up" lesson which will scheduled for the next available time for the student and Mrs. Abramoff.
**All lessons cancelled due to bad weather or other emergency circumstances by the student or the teacher will be rescheduled at a later date as a "make-up" lesson. There are no refunds for bad weather or emergency cancellations.**
The studio will be closed on these days and students are not expected at their lessons.
