Trial Session Fee
Trial session includes a 30-min sample lesson and 15-minute Q&A. Parents and students are able to know about teacher’s teaching style, scheduling for the year and details of the studio policy etc. Trial lesson fee is non-refundable.
Cancellation Policy and Makeup Lessons
Please plan ahead if your child has any activities. Lesson time is exclusively reserved for your child. There are no refunds for last-minute canceled or no-notice lessons. I allow rescheduling lesson with 7 days' notice. These lessons must be rescheduled within the current studio year. There are no makeups for ear training classes.
If an emergency occurs or lessons have to be canceled due to inclement weather, please call or text me at least one day before the lesson. Makeup lessons apply the same as above. Scheduled makeup lessons will not be rescheduled. Time for makeup lessons is limited and cannot be guaranteed.
PLEASE do not bring a sick child to the lesson or show up ill yourself. This includes but not limited to: flu, common cold, pink eye, bed bugs, etc.
If I am sick or must miss a lesson, I will be sure to give the promised 40 individual lessons and 20 group classes within the school year (before May.)
I encourage open communication. I will always be happy to hear things that work well for you and your child. On the contrary, I will love to know and talk if something is not going well in lessons, and we can find solutions together that will help. There will be no refunds upon studio withdrawal.
Summer Term Lessons
Lessons are offered during summer vacation. Each student is required to take at least one-month lessons so you can maintain your progress. Lesson time during summer is flexible. Please plan ahead so I can put you in my summer teaching schedule. Ear Training Classes are offered as a special intensive program in summer. More details will be released later this semester.
Summer term payment is based on the amount of lessons/classes and has to be paid in the 1st lesson of the term. Cancellation and makeup lesson policy apply the same as above.
Recital is held at least one per year. Every student is highly encouraged to perform. There are no more than $35 will be collected before the recital in order to pay for recital location rental, reception, pianist etc.
