The first  tuition payment  is due  by August 1st as a non-refundable deposit to hold a place on the class schedule.

Payments are due in advance on or before the 1st lesson of each month.  Payments may be mailed or given to the teacher at a lesson.  Late payments will incur a late fee of $15 if not received by the 15th of the month.  The teacher reserves the right to raise fees at the beginning of each new academic year. The cost of books, materials, and recital or activity fees are billed separately.

MISSED LESSONS : Missed lessons may be re-scheduled for another time during the same week, if time is available. No refund of credit will be given for missed lessons that have not been re-scheduled. A week is set aside at the end of each semester so that those students who have missed a class that was not re-scheduled during the same week may make-up the lesson.  If for some reason the instructor needs to cancel a lesson, it will either re-scheduled or a credit will be given.
