Hallie's Studio Policies

**Update for July and August, 2021

Hallie's Studio will be using an online substitute teacher while Hallie Chandola is on Maternity Leave. Current students are required to pay their normal monthly fee before the 25th of June and July, and all scheduling will be handled with the substitute. No carry-over lessons are allowed for July or August. Students who do not wish to utilize the substitute may have the option to rejoin if the wait-list allows in September, 2021 at the current rate.

Hallie's Studio welcomes all families with young aspiring musicians ages 2.5-18 years of age. Please read the following policies effective September 1st, 2021.

Students who miss more than 3 consecutive weeks will have to restart through the wait-list for a time slot at the current rate. Emergency cases will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis, and will usually require make-up lessons to be scheduled.


Lesson times are exact. Please be punctual. Make-up lessons might be offered on a case by case basis with 24 hours or more cancellation notice at teacher's discretion. Paid group classes or masterclasses cannot be made up or refunded.


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 at least twice yearly and all students are encouraged to participate. Recital notices will be given at least a month in advance and usually take place in May and December in different public places.

Daily practice and listening is required by all students and length of practice depends on skill level. Practice requirements should be written for each private lesson in their notebook. Don't forget your notebook, and practice every day that you eat!


Payment is accepted via Cash, Check, PayPal, Apple Pay, Zelle, or credit card through the invoice portal, and is due by the 25th of each month prior. After the 1st of the month a 10% late fee will be added to the invoice.


Thank you for complying with my studio policies and I look forward to inspiring your family with beautiful music!
