Rates & Policies

Field Texture

Studio Policies

TUITION


Monthly tuition is due in advance (at the end of each month) for the upcoming month. Payments may be made in cash or by personal check, payable to your instructor, by credit card or PayPal. Some instructors also accept Zelle and/or Venmo. Tuition is non-refundable.




ATTENDANCE


Consistency is very important in the study of music. Regular attendance at your weekly lessons and practicing between lessons is crucial to your development as an artist. We require a minimum of 24-hours' notice to cancel lessons. If less than 24-hours' notice is provided, students will be charged for the missed lesson.




ILLNESS


In consideration for the instructor and others, students should not attend lessons when ill. Please notify your instructor as early as possible if you must miss a lesson due to illness. 24-hours' notice is preferable, but when this is not possible due to sudden onset of illness, please call first thing in the morning on the day of your lesson if you must cancel.




MAKEUP LESSONS


Students and parents are asked to understand that, because all of the instructors continue to be active performers, occasionally scheduling conflicts arise, making it necessary to re-schedule or suspend lessons for a short time. In these cases, ample notice will be provided, and every effort will be made to reschedule the lesson. Students will not be charged for lessons canceled by instructors.

MATERIALS


Voice students should bring a 3-ring binder, a pencil, and either a recording device or some medium to which a recording can be transferred (blank CD, thumb drive, etc.) with them to each lesson. Your instructor will give you music and study materials to keep in your binder, and will make a recording of your vocal exercises and songs during your lesson. These are your best tools to use for practicing between lessons. Instrumental students will be issued books, which are yours to keep. The cost of these books will be added to your tuition. Please bring your music books to each lesson.




DISCONTINUING LESSONS


A minimum of two weeks' written notice is required if students intend to discontinue regular lessons. If less than two weeks' notice is given, the student will be charged a cancellation fee equivalent to two weeks' lesson tuition in order to give the instructor adequate time to fill the student's time slot without interruption. Tuition is non-refundable.




HOLIDAYS


The following holidays are observed. Students will not be scheduled or charged for lessons on these days. New Year's Eve New Year's Day Easter Sunday Memorial Day Independence Day Labor Day Thanksgiving Day Christmas Eve Christmas Day

What Our Clients Say

Robyn Spangler Epstein.jpg

Robyn E., Parent

"The best thing I can say about Richard teaching my son piano is - WOW! My son had taken music lessons in the past and the teacher's lesson plan was so slow that my son quickly got bored and dropped out. Not with Richard. He is intuitive when it comes to how quickly his students can absorb and pushes my son to do achieve his potential."
