PIANO: PACKAGES & POLICIES
SEPTEMBER 11 to DECEMBER 23
Includes 12 lessons over 15 weeks
(No lessons: Fall Break, Thanksgiving, Final Week Makeups)
$640 ($160 pro-rate for 4months)
Drop-in lesson fees
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.
To be eligible for a make-up lesson, a student must provide a minimum of 24 hours notice. If feeling unwell and possibly contagious, a virtual lesson is a great option to take the place of an in-person lesson.
Tuition is a semester agreement and secures a weekly appointment.
"Drop-in" lessons are an option but do not secure a weekly appointment and are only available based on Danielle's weekly calendar. "Drop-ins" are designed for adult musicians who want to book single lessons at their convenience.
Refunds will not be issued. The Make-Up Policy offers two make-ups during the semester.
Additional expenses include the purchasing of necessary musical materials and books.
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
STUDENTS: The responsibility for success lies heavily with you. In order to achieve success, you must be committed to learning. These are my expectations for each lesson:
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.
Bring all required materials: assigned music, notebook, and a pencil.
Approach each lesson with a positive, attentive attitude and a desire to learn.
PARENTS: Your main responsibility is providing support for your child’s music education. Which includes
Providing supplies and music books
Practice area equipped with piano or keyboard (required) and metronome
Practice area free from distractions
Interest in your child’s progress
