The nitty gritty details...
Students beginning lessons in August 2017 are required to make a commitment to attend 32 lessons between Labour Day and the last week of June 2015. No refunds will be given for lessons not taken by the end of June 2015. The goal is to finish by the end of May. Students may miss lessons for any reason, however; I require 24 hours notice except for the following reasons: sudden illness, inclement weather, or family emergency.
I DO NOT CHARGE FOR LESSONS WHEN SOMEONE IS SICK. (provided that there are not so many misses that the year is not completed by the end of June.) I need each 30 minute reserved time slot to pay $1060 per season. If no phone call is received, giving me 24 hours notice, the missed class is to be paid for. NO CREDIT. Payments should be made monthly at the beginning of each month. Post-dated cheques must be dated for the 1ST DAY OF EACH MONTH. Please call me for tuition details. There are discounts for families that take 4 or more lessons per week. If paying on-line please make your payments 7 days in advance so that your tuition arrives by the 1st of the month.
Please keep in mind that I must cancel from time to time due to illness, meetings, the music festival, exams, etc.. I will give as much notice as possible if I must cancel a lesson. Please do not ask Andrew to rearrange his schedule to accommodate extra curricular activities. If given a choice, please choose your lesson time very carefully. Students who wish to participate in one of the exam sessions must have their pieces memorized, and their technical requirements learned before submitting an application. (You cannot cram for a piano exam!)
