Hallie's Studio Policies
Hallie's Studio welcomes all families with young aspiring musicians ages 3-18 years of age. Please read the following policies effective May 1st, 2022.
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 to take notes, 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.
Public Performance Participation:
Performance opportunities will be offered at least twice yearly and all students are encouraged to participate. 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. Students using FES-UA funds will have their funds requests made the first of each month or at the start of a semester and have no late payment penalties.
Thank you for complying with my studio policies and I look forward to inspiring your family with beautiful music!
