Studio Policy


STUDIO POLICY 2021-2022



TUITION

  • Tuition is $65 a month, for weekly 30 minute lessons

  • Tuition covers time with students, preparation time, recitals, materials (other than books), and holds your place in the schedule for the year. 

  • Books are $12 each and I will let you know when a new book is needed, once or twice a year. 

  • Invoices will be sent out each month and can be paid securely and free online or by cash/check.  


SCHEDULING

  • You can access the lesson schedule by logging in to your student portal at hmmusicstudio.com where you can choose your lesson slot, cancel your lesson, or schedule a make-up lesson. 

  • Our schedule includes 35 lessons from Sept-June, flexible lessons are offered in July and August

  • Lessons will not be held during school vacation days (MSAD 53) 

  • On snow days, in-person lessons are optional and can be moved online. 


SICKNESS

  • Students will not be able to take in-person lessons if they are showing any symptoms of COVID, or other illness. 

  • Online lessons are a good option for students feeling unwell and we can switch to an online lesson up to the last minute before the scheduled lesson. 


MISSED LESSONS

  • No refunds will be given for lessons missed by the student.

  • In case of sickness or a need to quarantine, lessons can be done remotely, or a make-up lesson may be offered if the schedule allows. 

  • If I, the teacher, have to cancel a lesson due to illness or emergency, I will give a credit for that lesson on the next month’s invoice. 

DISCONTINUATION

  • Refunds of monthly tuition will not be given, even if you decide not to finish the lessons for that month. 

  • Two weeks notice is appreciated so that I can offer your spot to someone else.  

  • Lessons may be discontinued for any student who displays inappropriate conduct or who fails to respect the studio policy.
