Each session includes a certain number of lesson weeks, however, the session RATE includes ONE FREE lesson. Therefore if a lesson is missed due to illness or vacation, there is no charge for that lesson. If you do not miss any lessons during the session, you score a bonus with one FREE lesson. However, if MORE THAN one lesson is missed during a session, there are no make-up lessons and NO refunds and NO credits.

Tuition is not merely an hourly fee for services rendered. Each student is paying not only for music instruction at the piano, but also for a guaranteed place in my studio and preparatory planning for each lesson. This includes hunting for repertoire, organizing recitals, planning summer music camps, researching and staying current with the latest technology, writing recommendations, attending conferences and practicing. The commitment to your child's musical advancement is a full-time effort, and goes above and beyond an hourly fee.
