The Atlanta’s Parisian School of Music, LLC

STUDIO POLICY 2019-20

 

 

General Expectations

 

The Student is to arrive at each lesson punctually, well prepared, and with all necessary materials (a list will be provided to each student according to the level) and must schedule daily practice, at least 4 days a week, 20 minutes until 3rd grade, at least 30 minutes after 3rd grade.

 

The parent, or legal guardian, is to provide an instrument in the best possible condition (pianos must be tuned at least once a year, flutes serviced once a year), chair or bench at correct height, metronome, music stands and adequate lighting in a location allowing uninterrupted practice.

 

The student or his/her parent(s) or legal guardian(s) must commit to flute or piano lessons as an activity of equal importance as others, such as sports, homework, dance or other similar activities.

 

Tuition

 

Tuition reserves the student's weekly time slot in the teacher's schedule throughout the year and is required regardless of attendance.

 

Rates

 

60 min. lesson = $76

45 min. lesson = $57

30 min. lesson = $38

 

Payment

 

Tuition is to be paid at the last lesson of each month.  Tuition is payable by cash or check. Checks are to be made out to " The Atlanta’s Parisian School of Music, LLC". Late payments will incur a $10 fee, which will be waived once a semester.  There will be a $30 fee for returned checks.   

 

 

Tardiness

 

The student will contact the teacher by phone if they expect to be late for a scheduled lesson. 

If a student arrives after their scheduled lesson time has begun, the teacher will complete the lesson in the remaining portion of the time slot.  Additional time for student tardiness is not guaranteed.

If the teacher arrives after a scheduled lesson has begun, the teacher will give additional time past the time slot to compensate for their tardiness with mutual acceptance of the student's schedule.    

 

Rescheduling

 

Students needing to reschedule a lesson should let the teacher know at least a week in advance to ensure a time slot.   

 

Cancellations

 

Students must cancel lessons by phone or email with at least 48 hours notice.  Cancellations are considered excused for illness, family emergency, or severe weather (public school closures). 

 

Excused cancellations with sufficient notification will be given a make-up lesson within the month or lesson credit towards the following month. No-shows, or cancellations without sufficient notification will not be given make-up lessons or lesson credits.   

 

The teacher may need to reschedule or cancel a lesson due to illness, family emergency, or performance engagements.  In this case, the teacher will provide a make-up lesson within the month or lesson credit towards the following month.

 

Make-Up Lessons/Lesson Credits

 

Only 3 excused cancellations will be allowed per academic year.  Excused cancellations will be given make-up lessons within the month. If a student cannot attend a scheduled make-up lesson, the lesson will be considered forfeited. Make-up lessons are not guaranteed and are subject to availability. After 3 excused cancellations, further cancelled lessons will be considered forfeited and will not be given make-up lessons, or lesson credits.
