Tuition is paid at the first lesson of each month for the entire month.

September 2016 through August 2018 Tuition:


If you must miss a scheduled lesson, you still pay the tuition, just as you would for any tuition-based education.

  • If you can’t make it to your scheduled lesson during a week but would still like to take the lesson, I will make my best effort to schedule an alternate time for you during that week. I cannot guarantee that an alternate lesson can be scheduled, but I will do my best.

In the case of holidays, inclement weather, illness on my part, or other unforeseen circumstances where I am not available for your scheduled lesson, we will reschedule the postponed lesson for another time.

  • If circumstances allow, we may do the lesson via Skype/FaceTime/Hangouts/Facebook Video, etc.

  • If no suitable time is found, a double lesson (60 minutes/90 minutes) will be offered at a mutually agreed-upon date and time.

  • In a worse-case scenario where no make-up is possible for a lesson needing to be reschduled by the instructor, a full refund of 25% of the monthly tuition will be given.

Students are expected to continue with lessons through the summer months. 

Students requesting to take time off from lessons risk losing their enrollment status to students on the waiting list.

Students who choose to stop taking lessons must give a minimum 30-days notice.

The following forms of payment are accepted: cash, personal checks, major credit cards and all forms of electronic payment. Credit/debit cards may be swiped at the lesson or taken over the phone. Other electronic payments may be made from your bank or other service (such as PayPal).

  • I cannot accept payments through my website at this time.

Modest tuition increases may occur annually in September.
