PIANO: PACKAGES & POLICIES
Summer 2020 SESSION
June 2 - August 6
Package 1: 6 lessons
Package 2: 9 lessons
Lessons are on a session basis: Spring/Summer/Fall. To maintain a spot in my studio, you must register for lessons year round.
Scheduling is renewed each session.
Contact Danielle at least 24 hours in advance if the student will be absent.
If a student does not show or cancels later than 24 hours in advance, the lesson fee is still applicable. (Emergencies will be understood.)
Refunds will not be issued. Please read the Make-Up Policy below carefully.
Additional expenses include the purchasing of necessary musical materials and books.
Make-Up Policy: Students can make up only two lessons during the semester. Make-ups will not occur during the regular session but will be announced on two specific dates. An email will be sent to you with information, and it is your responsibility to sign-up for a make-up.
Danielle reserves the right to dismiss a student if any of the following situations persist after Danielle has notified the student and provided time to correct the problem:
Lack of dependability and commitment exhibited in persistent absences.
The student consistently demonstrates a lack of willingness to participate during lesson time.
The student consistently fails to show diligence and determination in home practice.
Repeated failure to prepare assigned material.
GOALS AND EXPECTATIONS

Be prepared. Have your completed assignment from the prior week accomplished and your practice time sheet. I encourage daily practice of your materials. Remember, you are in charge of your progress. I can coach, encourage, and provide, but it is your responsibility to retain the information and put it into practice.
