IMPORTANT REVISIONS DUE TO COVID-19:
2020-2021 is going to be a year of flexibility as this Pandemic continues. As of 9/1/20 I will remain online. Depending on Humboldt COVID numbers, and what the school situation is, I may offer hybrid lessons at my studio with full health guards in place beginning in October 2020. This can be extended or rescinded at any time due to public health issues.
Because of uncertainty and the possible need to modify schedules quickly, I can and will be flexible with make-up lessons, extra time and additional help.
Obviously, group classes, recitals and parties are cancelled until further notice.
Humboldt Piano Studio provides an exceptional standard of teaching, including artistic example, dedication, customization, cheerfulness, patience, energy and over 35 years of teaching experience. To make the studio experience the best possible, the following policies and procedures will be implemented 9/1/19
Regular attendance is expected and encouraged to gain maximum benefit from music instruction. Commitment to this activity should be given priority during your scheduled time. Please provide as much notice as possible if you know you will miss a lesson.
Students pay a simple, flat-rate annual tuition split into 10 monthly payments. Your tuition fee reserves an exclusive weekly lesson time on the teacher’s schedule and includes the following:
· 35 weekly Lessons plus flex week plus 3 extra/makeup group classes
· All Music and Materials
· Subscription to Piano Maestro and Supersonics
. Studio license fees for exciting new music from leading pedagogy composers

TUITION FEES (September through June)

Tuition will be billed by the 25th of the preceding month and is due on the 1st. We now accept electronic payments as well as check or cash. Please note: The studio operates with a full roster. If a student wishes to take a break from lessons, they do so with the understanding that I cannot hold their spot in the studio schedule.
REGARDING MISSED LESSONS
Tuition is based on 35 private lessons. . When students miss a scheduled lesson, they simply miss the benefit of that lesson. If your child is running a fever or contagious, you can either choose a facetime or Skype lesson, or video their progress and I will respond with suggestions and guidance. There is also a small chance I can reschedule.
Students are encouraged to include frequent trips to the piano as part of the rhythm of life. 1 hour a week is the minimum amount of time needed to show any progress.
Adult students are charged by the lesson instead of being required to attend the full 10 month term. Lesson prices for adults if $25 - 1/2 hour and $50 for 1 hour. Adults also meet for wine and cheese and share their performance progress regularly.
