Lesson fees and payment
Private lesson fees may be paid monthly by either cash, check, or Venmo. Please contact me regarding questions about lesson fees.
24 hour notification is required for all missed lessons. In the event of an emergency (if the student wakes up sick or needs to check out) notify me as soon as possible. If you fail to give notification of absence you will still be charged for the lesson.
If notification is given, I will attempt to make up the lesson. If I am unable to make up the lesson, I will issue a credit to your account.
*Group lessons cannot be made up and students in group lessons will forfeit their lesson fee in the event of missed lessons
All students should have an instrument that is in good working order, at least 4 good reeds (Vandoren is preferred), a spiral notebook, pencil, metronome (an app is ok), and assigned lesson materials. You should expect to spend around $25-35 per year on music books. A music stand is highly recommended.
* Recommended materials can be found here
Students are expected to practice outside of their private lesson each week. Practice expectations are:
- 6th Grade 20-30 minutes 5 days a week
- 7th and 8th Grade 30-45 minutes 5 days a week
- High School 45-60 minutes 5 days a week
Inclement Weather Policy
In the event of a school closure due to inclement weather, lessons will be conducted via Skype or Facetime. I will contact students the morning of their regularly scheduled lesson to schedule a lesson time.
