Please read the Studio 09 Policy. No registration will be processed until Policy is read and tuition has been paid. You will be contacted within 2 business days to schedule your lessons. Your tuition reserves your time. If you are late or miss a lesson you are still responsible for paying your tuition. If you are late for a lesson you will be given instruction for the remainder of your lesson. In order to get a lesson made up, you must give a 24 hour notice. Makeup lessons are given on a designated day at the end of each month. Lessons are at the same time each week. Please do not show up early or stay late for someone else’s lesson time. I have had many problems with this in the past and lost students. It is not fair for someone who also pays for their lessons to feel rushed out the door or feel uncomfortable for time they are paying for. Thanks in advance for understanding.
Tuition is due in advance. Paypal takes debit and most major credit for those who prefer to use this option. You do not have to have a Paypal account to use this service. Absolutely no instruction will be given to unpaid accounts. Students will not be able to come into the studio and Skype lessons will not be available if your tuition is not paid. If you are paying with a check, please make sure to put the students name on the check to ensure proper credit to your account.
Tuition is based on a 48 week year. I am closed Christmas break, spring break and one week for personal vacation. Studio 09 local schedule runs concurrent with the local Cabot school district. Holiday and vacation closings will not be made up as they are already prorated into the tuition. Local students will be using the same inclement weather policy as Cabot school district. In the event the weather does not cooperate, these lessons will be made up. This does not apply to Skype students unless there is a total power outage in my area. Otherwise Skype lessons will continue as scheduled.
Sick students will not be permitted into the studio at any time! we all perform and compete on a regular basis so if you are sick just let me know and I will gladly make up the lesson with notice. Local parents are asked to run errands or wait outside during lessons. I do understand that if you don’t know me you may want to hang out and get a feel for me and the environment the first time. After that please understand that a parent standing over me makes it difficult for me to do my job. When the parent is hanging around the child spends more time trying to please them and not focusing on learning. I will ask you to leave and give your money back. I have a lot to offer if you will just trust me to do my job! I do have parent child packages for parents who want to study with their kids. If you choose this option, please let me do my job! We always make sure every kid gets in the car with their parent. No kid will walk outside of our studio unsupervised at any time.
Please keep a folder with you at every lesson with plenty of paper for taking notes and making charts. Rewriting charts for each lesson is a complete waste of time and money so organization is extremely important. I will show you how to utilize the internet for a wealth of resources playing music. This will help keep costs down and learning fun! You will be contacted within 2 business days to set up your schedule. Thank you for choosing Studio 09!
