Please start by filling out our enrollment form which once completed will lead you to our student contract. Once we receive both completed forms we will email you to see what day and time works best for your schedule. If you have any questions please contact us 747-200-5772 firstname.lastname@example.org
Tuition is billed automatically on the same day of every month to the card we have saved on file. This will secure your time on your teacher’s schedule. Monthly tuition generally covers 4 lessons a month and the tuition rate is the same regardless of the number of weeks in a month. Some holiday months will have 3 weeks of lessons and some will have 5 weeks.
Tuition is not adjusted for missed or canceled lessons.
We have a yearly registration fee of $55 which covers all books, music, ribbons, prizes, trophies, and recital costs. You will be charged a pro-rated fee for the year upon sign up.
Teachers never handle payment or scheduling. This is always handled by the studio.
We recommend lessons once a week for most students. For accelerated students or those preparing for an upcoming performance who may need some extra time, we are happy to add an additional lesson per week.
MISSED OR CANCELED LESSONS?
We encourage our students to stay consistent with lessons each week. This is both beneficial for the student’s progress and guarantees a spot on their teacher’s schedule. If you have a scheduling conflict or get sick, please contact us via phone, email or text and let us know you won’t make your regular scheduled lesson time.
If you aren't able to make it to your scheduled lesson time for any reason you can attend one or both of our group make-up lessons. These are held on the 4th Sat. and Sun of every month. Every student gets 24 group make up classes a year. These classes are a great way to learn something new from a different instructor.
Tuition is not adjusted for missed or canceled lessons. If you are more than 30 minutes late for a hour-long lesson, or 15 minutes late for a 30-minute lesson then you forfeit that lesson. Three consecutive no notices will result in automatic termination of any further lessons.
We do not reschedule lessons. We offer group make up classes.
Private In-Home Lessons
24 hour notice must be given. If your teacher's schedule permits you can reschedule your lesson within 2 weeks. Otherwise you can attend our group make up class.
Group & Rock Band Class
There are no make ups for missed group or rock band class.
A 60 minute lesson may be split into half, i.e. 30 minutes guitar and 30 minutes Voice. A 30 minute lesson is only enough time to go over one instrument.
Every day. We recommend you try and sit down everyday to practice, even if you only have 10 minutes. Consistency is much more important than how long you practice.
Beginners ages 4-6 10 minutes a day
Beginners ages 7-10 15 minutes a day
Intermediate students or beginner adults 20 minutes a day
Advanced students 30-60 minutes a day
Each week you will need to bring: your instrument (except for piano students) your notebook and a pencil. Notebooks are provided to the student at their first lesson and are very important to the lessons. Teachers write down all assignments, practice boxes, and use the notebooks to teach note reading.
Voice students are encouraged to bring an iPod or smartphone for recording practice and warmups. Your teacher can record your lesson for you and email it if you don’t have one.
Feel free to bring any sheet music, books or songs on a smartphone/iPod you would like to work on.
We do not give out our teacher’s personal information for privacy concerns. This policy is in place to protect our teachers from harassment or unwanted contact outside of teaching hours. However, you may always speak with your teacher before or after your lesson if there’s anything you’d like to discuss.
If you are an in-home student, your teacher will have your phone number in case there is an issue or they cannot find your home.
We kindly ask that even though you may have your teacher’s phone number, please do not contact them outside of their teaching hours. For any questions about the schedule or payment, please contact the studio.
