Please Note: Christy is now offering private online instruction if needing!
Lesson balances are to be paid on the first lesson of each month for the number of weeks in that month. No payments for individual lessons will be accepted. Payments can be made through cash, check (please make payable to Christy's Music Studio), Venmo or Zelle.
There may be times when a student will need to miss a lesson due to illness or family vacation. In this case, a student may schedule a make-up lesson on Christy's calendar. Make-up lessons will only be provided under the following guidelines:
The student has not taken more than two make-up lessons per three months of enrollment.
Make-up lesson credit must be used within 1 month of the missed lesson.
Make-up lessons can only be arranged up to one week in advance and once booked, cannot be altered and will be forfeited if not attended or cancelled.
Your account is up to date and there are no balances owing.
Students are responsible for scheduling their own make up lessons. Make-up Lessons will be given only at times and dates within the teacher's normal teaching schedule or at a mutually agreeable time. The lesson is considered to have been given if the student misses the scheduled make-up lesson for any reason. There is no refund on make-up lessons that are not taken.
As a courtesy to others, if possible, please give at least 24 hour notice of a lesson needing to be missed. This will give Christy time to edit the calendar, and another student the opportunity to use that time.
In the rare occasions when Christy needs to cancel a lesson, students will have their choice of a make-up lesson or a credit for the following month.
Students, in order to ensure maximum lesson time, should arrive a few minutes early and be ready to start their lesson at the designated time with all books and materials needed for the lesson. If the student is not in the studio within the first fifteen minutes of his or her lesson time, he or she is considered a "no show" and the lesson is no longer owed.
There are no refunds for unscheduled/missed lessons.
Parents and Family:
Parents and family members are more than welcome to attend a student's lesson. All attendee's must remain quiet and not disturb the lesson.
I am currently teaching Beginning through intermediate levels.
What can I expect to learn?:
A variety of technique, repertoire and method books will be used to teach note reading, proper playing technique, ear training and theory. If there is a particular style or type of music you or your student enjoys, please let me know and I will do my best to accommodate your requests!
There will be at least two recitals a year for students to perform in!
