Policy

1. Payment––Payment for each lesson must be received before or at the beginning of each scheduled lesson. Lessons which are given without payment will incur a late charge of $5 during the first week following the lesson, and an additional $5 for each subsequent week. No exceptions will be made to this policy.

Students may choose one of the following options:
Option A––Full month’s payment is due by the first lesson of each month. Payments may be submitted by mail or may be brought to the first lesson of each month.

Option B––Payments are made on a lesson by lesson basis. Note: Students who neglect to bring payment to each lesson will automatically be put on a monthly payment plan.

2. Cancellations––Upcoming lessons must be cancelled or rescheduled no later than 24 hours ahead of time. A lesson that is cancelled without sufficient notice will be designated as "missed" and will be charged as a full lesson. A make-up lesson may be offered in some circumstances, at the teacher's discretion. No exceptions will be made to this policy.

3. Teacher cancellations––The teacher may cancel a lesson with 24 hours’ notice. The student may opt to receive a make-up lesson or cancel altogether. Lessons cancelled with sufficient notice will be credited to the following month. On the rare occasion that the teacher must cancel a lesson with less than 24 hours’ notice, the student will receive an additional lesson’s credit for the following month.

4. Billing rate––Student billing rates may be adjusted at any time. All rate adjustments will be published in writing for reference.

5. Starting time––Lessons will begin and end on time. The teacher will wait 10 minutes if the student is late. Lessons that begin late will still end at the scheduled ending time.
