Studio Policies



Payment is due at the beginning of each month for the amount of lessons to be held that month. Half hour lessons are $25.

Pay by cash, check, Venmo, or PayPal. For more details about those options visit my Payment Page.


Lessons began on the half hour. Arrive a couple minutes before your scheduled lesson time, so that lessons can start promptly. If you arrive late, the lesson will still finish at the appointed time.

Missed Lessons

I aim to be flexible, and I understand that life keeps us busy! I allow families one “no show” or missed lesson with no notice, at no expense. And then I require payment for the second or third missed lesson. I keep track of these in my records.

Missed lessons due to forgetfulness, illness or holidays are not refundable. Exceptions will be made for prolonged sicknesses and extenuating circumstances on an individual basis.

Please let me know if you have any questions about this policy.

Rescheduling Lessons

If you need to reschedule a lesson, please provide at least 24 hours notice. I do not follow the school closings / snow day calendar. If you do not reschedule at least 24 hours before your lesson time, I will consider it a Missed Lesson.

Summer 2019 Schedule

I will continue to teach in June, July and August and we can schedule one month at a time, or for all three months in advance. I am happy to be flexible with the days/times during this time. I do prefer a set schedule, however. This summer I’ll be away from the studio July 3rd - July 15th.
