Lesson Policies For Sandy's Studio

CRANE MUSIC STUDIOS
Sandy Crane—Piano/Voice Lessons

PAYMENT

Lessons are charged at a flat monthly rate of $50.00 for piano and $80.00 for voice (unless voice students provide their own accompanist...then $60.00/month.) Payments are due on the first lesson of the month. If you are going to miss your first lesson during the month, please mail your payment. If payment is not received by the first week of the month, and no arrangements have been made with me, a $10 late fee will be charged, and no further lessons will be offered until payment is made.

Your payment entitles you to the equivalent of four weekly lessons during the month. In the event that there are five weeks in a month, the instructor can choose to use it as a make-up for another missed lesson, or to use it as a free day/cancellation. (Please see the section on attendance for my make up lesson policy.)

For One Time/"Pay As You Go" lessons, payment must be brought with you to the lesson.
Credits will only be given when I am unable to provide the equivalent of 4 lessons in a given month.

DISCOUNTS

If you refer a student to the studio, you will receive a $10 credit toward your tuition. This is given 60 days after the new student begins. There is no limit and you receive it for every student you refer (i.e., if you refer a family of two students, you receive two referral credits).

ATTENDANCE & MAKE-UP LESSONS

You will be charged for the whole month whether or not you attend each lesson. However, I do schedule make-up lessons if I am called at least 24 hours in advance of your regular lesson time. It is your responsibility to call me and schedule your make-up lesson before the end of the month. Make-up lessons will not be carried into the next month, nor will you receive credit for lessons that you did not reschedule. You will be charged for any lessons that are missed without notice!
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 and I will hold your time spot for up to two months.

PRACTICING

Each student is asked to practice 5-6 days per week for at least 30 minutes a day minimum.

Lack of practice is NOT considered a reason for missing lessons.

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

MISCELLANEOUS

Recitals will be held periodically as determined by the instructors of Crane Music Studios.

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.
Parking is available on the street in front of the "Olympus Vista Condominiums" sign in front of our townhomes. Please do not park in the emergency lane or in other parking spots directly in front of our housing area. If you are towed for parking somewhere other than on the street, Crane Music Studios is not liable for the charges.
