Lesson Policies for David's Studio

Payment
1. Lessons are charged at a flat monthly rate as outlined on the Pricing/Services page.

2. Payments are due no later than the 7th day of the month. Lessons will be discontinued after th 14th day of the month if payment is not received. Payment of the full months tuition will be required to start lessons again. Lessons cancelled due to non-payment cannot be made up.

2. The tuition entitles you to the equivalent of 4 weekly lessons during the month. (Please see the section on attendance for my make up lesson policy.)

Discounts
1. A prompt pay discount of $10 will be deducted from your payment if it received by the 7th of each month. If you will miss your first lesson of the month, you can mail your payment so it is received, not postmarked, by the 7th.

2. If you refer a student to the studio, you will receive a $30 credit toward your tuition. This is given as a $10 credit each month for the first 3 months the new student is with the studio. There is no limit and you receive it for every student you refer (i.e., if you refer a family of 2 students, you receive 2 referral credits).

3. Temporary discounts are periodically offered for new students and families as outlined in adds. It is the responsibility of the prospective student to make sure the discounts are given and brought to my attention.

Attendance
1. You will be charged for the whole month whether or not you attend each lesson.

2. A Leave of Absence may be requested ahead of time if you are going to miss a month or more of lessons. You are not charged during this time. I no longer will hold your time during the leave of absence. You will need to schedule a new time when you return. You are charged for any missed lessons prior to requesting a Leave of Absence.

3. Make-up lessons are not guaranteed, but offered based on availability. No make-up lesson will be given for “day of” cancellations. Make-up lessons will not be carried into the next month, nor will you receive credit for lessons that are not made up.

4. Credits will only be given when I am unable to provide the equivalent of 4 lessons in a given month.

Practicing
1. Each student is asked to practice 5-6 days per week for at least 30 minutes a day minimum. Adult students should strive to practice at least a few minutes everyday, even if limited on time.

2. Lack of practice is not considered a reason for missing lessons.

3. Many families like to take a break in the summer. However, taking the entire summer off is detrimental to a student’s progress.

Miscellaneous
1. Recitals will be held approximately once a year.

2. Each student is to practice all the material that he or she is assigned for the week. If a parent feels that the assignment needs to be modified, please call me first. I may have a pedagogical reason for what I have given them.
