Studio Policies

Tuition and Billing

  • Tuition is billed monthly and is due at the 1st lesson of the month.  I will bill a late fee of $5 for each week that payment is late.  

  • I will send an invoice with the amount due and the dates of lessons for the month.  Cash, checks and online bank transfers such as Venmo, Paypal or Zelle are all accepted.

  • 24-hour notice is required for lesson cancellation unless for illness, family emergency, or inclement weather.  Make-ups will be given at my discretion.  Any lessons that I need to change will be given a make-up time.  Any no shows or less than 24 hour notice will be billed as normal.  

Schedule

  • Weekly lessons are required mid-August through the end of May.  We will discuss each families schedule with school breaks, family vacations and other conflicts and find a schedule that works for you.

  • Year-round study is very important for continued progress.  I require families to continue their studies during the summer.  It is much more relaxed during the summer and I will work around family vacations, conflicts, summer camps, etc.  I also travel quite a bit during the summer playing and teaching at different music festivals around the country.  I will send out a summer poll and each week will have a slightly different schedule depending on who is in town.  Expect between 2-3 lessons a month during the months of June-August. 

 

Recitals

  • There will be opportunities for recitals in the form of house concerts, Marvelous Musicales performances through the Broomfield Music Teachers Association at the Broomfield Auditorium, and rented venues for Studio Recitals.

  • Pianist fees will be split amongst the performers for both required rehearsal and concert.

Tickets for Colorado Symphony Concerts

  • Going to concerts is a wonderful way for students to learn from the masters in our field.  I have access to a few discounted tickets for most concerts that the Colorado Symphony does at Boettcher Concert Hall.  There are also student and teacher discounted tickets to most concerts as well.  If you are interested in hearing a particular concert, please be in touch with me in advance to see if I can arrange tickets for you.  These are available on a first come, first served basis, and a maximum of 4 tickets per concert weekend will be given.
