I’ve put these policies and practices in place to ensure the best possible lessons I can offer. I’m always willing to work with students and will accommodate whenever possible, so If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me!
Payments made after the student’s first scheduled lesson of a month will be subject to a late payment fee of $5.00 per week.

Absence and Dismissal Policy
A student may have a make-up lesson or may reschedule for any reason, provided at least 24 hours’ notice is given. A make-up lesson can only be rescheduled once (in other words, you will not be able to reschedule the rescheduled lesson). If a student is rescheduling more than once a month, a more stable lesson time will need to be determined. If less than 24 hours’ notice is given, no make-up lesson or rescheduling will be available. Exceptions can be made for illness, family emergencies, and, for in-person lessons, extreme weather conditions. Please note that if a student is without an instrument or other essential equipment, a lesson can be comprised of music theory, composing, arranging, notation/transcribing, or audio recording and mixing. Any in-person student with a contagious illness is asked to take online lessons while their condition is transmissible. All in-person students are understood to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
If I cancel a lesson with less than 24 hours’ notice or plan on being unavailable during a student’s scheduled lesson time, a full refund or credit for that lesson will be given if the session cannot be rescheduled to the convenience of the student. Absence without any notice will be charged at the full rate. Four consecutive absences without notice will result in the student being dropped from the schedule.
Please make every effort to arrive no sooner than 10 minutes prior to the scheduled lesson time and to leave no later than 10 minutes after the lesson has ended. Anyone needing to stop by my studio outside of a scheduled lesson time is asked to give at least 30 minutes advance notice. Permission must be sought before bringing any non-family guest to a lesson.
A student may also be permanently dropped from the schedule without warning if:
