Tuition is billed per month. On the first scheduled lesson for that month, the monthly tuition is due.
If a student cannot make one of the lessons in that month he/she may make up that lesson at another time or have a lesson credit.
A $10 late fee applies to late payments and a $20 fee for returned checks.
An additional traveling fee (per lesson) may be assessed (depending on location) if lessons are conducted outside of our studio.
If student(s) wish to participate in recitals, exams, music festivals or competitions, additional fees for registration may apply. Please note: extra lessons may be necessary to prepare students for such events.
Lesson fees are adjusted annually on January 1.
Students will be notified two months in advance for any tuition changes.
Cancellations and Make-up policy:
We all know that being consistent is very important in music learning.
Therefore, except for illnesses, vacations or major holidays, students should have lessons once a week. This ensures the progress is monitored, which is especially important for beginners.
Canceled lessons due to sickness/ school activities/other emergencies can be made up in the future as the teacher’s schedule permit.
If you cancel a lesson, your monthly lesson fee remains the same.
Lessons cancel by Catherine will be rescheduled.
When this is not possible, you may carry any credits forward to the following month.
30 days notice is required if student decides to discontinue lessons.
Those who discontinue prior to the end of the month with no previous notice will not receive a refund for the month.
