Hallie's Studio Policies
Hallie's Studio welcomes all families with young aspiring musicians ages 2.5-18 years of age. Please read the following policies updated 08.01.2019.
Group lessons cannot be made up or given lesson credit for in case of cancellation.
For private lessons, only one cancellation per month is allowed for a make-up or credit.
24 hours of notice for any cancellation is required, or the lesson is forfeit. Emergency cases will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis, and will usually require a make-up lesson to be scheduled.
Lesson times are exact. Please be punctual. Make-up lessons will be given for canceled private lessons with proper cancellation notice whenever possible. When it is not possible to have a make-up lesson, the lesson cost for 1 canceled lesson will be deducted from the next month's tuition with the exception of group classes. Paid group classes cannot be made up or rolled over to the next month unless cancelled due to low enrollment.
Parents are recommended to remain with the student throughout the lesson and required to stay for private lessons of students under 8. You are welcome to drop off children older than 8 for a lesson should you need to, and I will brief you on the skills and practice points to work on for the week. Visiting children and siblings are also welcome in my home.
Recitals will be offered twice yearly and all students are encouraged to participate. Recital notices will be given at least a month in advance.
Daily practice is required by all students and length of practice depends on skill level. Practice requirement will be written for each private lesson in their notebook, or emailed at the end of each group class. Don't forget your notebook, and practice every day that you eat!
Payment is accepted via Cash, Check, PayPal, or Apple Pay and is due at the time of the first lesson in every month. If it is known ahead of time that less than 4 private lessons will be taught for that month, the rate will be adjusted accordingly.
Thank you for complying with my studio policies and I look forward to enriching your
lives with music!
