Enrollment is for the 32 week Academic year. Remember you are paying for the direction and structure of music education, not for a specific amount of time. Makeup lessons will always be offered for teacher absence, but student absences are not generally eligible for makeup. Skype or recorded comments are often available for student absence.
Monthly payments are due on the first of each month, August through May.
Payment by the month is not enrollment by the month.
Late payment fee, after the 3rd of the month is $15 per occurrence, per student. Returned check fee is $30 per occurrence. If payment is more than 7 days late, lessons will stop.
Tardy -- lesson is forfeited if the student has not arrived by 1/3 of the lesson time. (Ten minutes late for 30 minute lesson; Fifteen minutes for 45 minute lesson, etc.)
Automatic electronic payment (PayPal) is available for semester or summer only.
Withdrawal requires 30 days notice. Tuition is non-refundable.
Because I am in the high-risk category for corona virus, (well over 60 and lifelong asthma) I'm asking you to help me be super careful. The following things will help.
I you have a way to do virtual interaction (Skype, Zoom, etc.) Please send me your information. At some point we may want to have distance (virtual) lessons.
Group classes are suspended through March. So no groups March 13, or 27th. We will reevaluate after spring break.
We will all use hand sanitizer before every lesson. Make sure hands are totally dry before touching a violin. The alcohol will destroy the violin finish.
Please, please keep sick students/family home.
