Payment Policies

Pay Per Lesson

• Fees will be collected at each lesson, for that lesson.

• Any lessons missed without a 48-hour notice must be paid at the next attended lesson.

• Any outstanding fees that have NOT been paid BEFORE the first lesson of the following month will result in a CANCELLATION OF LESSONS until the outstanding balance has been paid in full.

Monthly Payment

• Fees are paid on a monthly basis, by beginning of each month.

• Fees will be calculated according to how many lessons you will have in a given month. Each month may vary, due to the number of weeks, holidays, etc. I will inform you at the time of payment how many lessons you will have for that month.

• Fees that have NOT been paid by the FIRST LESSON of the month will result in a CANCELLATION OF LESSONS until all outstanding balances have been paid in full.

Quarterly (discounted rate)

• Fees are paid on a quarterly basis, at the begging of each quarter.

• Fees will be calculated according to how many lessons you will have in a given three month time. Each quarter may vary, due to the number of weeks, holidays, etc. I will inform you at the time of payment how many lessons you will have for that quarter.

• Fees that have NOT been paid by the FIRST LESSON of the quarter will result in a CANCELLATION OF LESSONS until all outstanding balances have been paid in full.

Missed Lessons, Cancellations & Illness

Missed Lessons & Cancellations

• If you must cancel a lesson, then it is a lesson missed - it will not be rescheduled. Payment will not be refunded, and those choosing Option #2, to “Pay Per Lesson”, will still be responsible for the payment of the missed lesson at their next attended lesson.


However... please note the following exceptions:


* Extra consideration and care will be given to those who cancel at least 48 hours before the scheduled lesson time. If adequate notice has been given, then I may either re-schedule the student’s lesson, or forward the payment for the missed lesson to the following month. Those who choose Option #2, to “Pay Per Lesson”, will still be responsible for the payment of the missed lesson if I have not received the appropriate 48-hour notice.


* If the reason that you are canceling is because you (the student) are ill, then I will

forward the amount of your missed lesson(s) to the following month.

CANCELLATION QUOTA:

You may only miss up to 50% of lessons per month without penalty, regardless of the reason. If you must cancel more than 50% of the lessons, you will still be responsible for paying for 50% of that month’s total lessons. If a student has two consecutive months of 50% or less attendance, then there is a possibility that the lesson time will be changed or given away to the next student on the waiting list.


Please Note: If I must cancel a lesson, I will forward the paid fee of the missed lesson to the following month if I cannot reschedule.

Illness

If your child is exhibiting any flu-like symptoms, or is ill with any other type of infection and/or fever, please call to cancel your child’s lesson until he/she is fully recovered. If I or my children become ill, then I must cancel ALL of my lessons as a result, so your careful consideration is appreciated.


In addition, if I am exhibiting any symptoms I will inform all of my students for that day via SMS, so that you may decide for yourselves whether or not you would like to have your lesson for the day. 


Please Note: If I feel that your child arrives at his/her lesson and is ill enough for concern, then I reserve the right to send your child home without a lesson for that day.
