Enrollment Forms & Studio Policy
The fee for the introductory lesson (30 minutes) is $35. This is a time for us to determine if I am a good teacher for your child. Payment for this lesson is due 48 hours prior to the initial lesson. If your student decides to enroll as an on-going student, the remaining monthly balance will be due before the next week's lesson (Ex: If the student's monthly rate is $144, then a balance of $109 will be due prior to the next lesson). Subsequent monthly lesson payments will be due on the 1st of the month for the month's total number of lessons. If you are sick or absent during the first lesson day of the month, payment must still be received on time. Please make arrangements accordingly.
Late Payments: In the event of late payments ( 3 days or more), a $25 late fee will be assessed and the remaining lessons for the month may be cancelled. Payment must be received in full before resuming lessons. In the event of more than two late payments in the calendar year, a monthly auto-payment will be necessary in order to continue lessons.
The following payment methods are accepted (I do not accept cash or personal checks):
- Online transfer: For those who bank with WSECU and wish to transfer payments electronically, please contact me for my account information. Please schedule the payments to transfer the first of the month, September June only (your summer lessons are included in the price of school year tuition).
- Bill Pay(For Continuing Students Only, Not an option for Intro Lesson Payment) : If you wish add me as a payee in your online banking and have your bank issue me a check via snail mail each month, please contact me for address information.
(Please set the date for no later than the 26th of each month so that it will arrive by the 1st.)
- Venmo: (@olyfiddle). This is an app that allows users to send payments from a smart phone without fees. If you are not a current Venmo user, you must set up an account and be verified. This can take between 1-3 days, depending on your bank. It can be downloaded in the App Store. Info here: https://venmo.com
- PayPal (firstname.lastname@example.org) If using this app, please add an additional 3.5 % to the total tuition each month to cover the fee deduction
CANCELLATIONS / MAKE-UP LESSONS
I require 24 hours notice in order for a make-up lesson to be considered. Priority for make-up lessons will be given for absences due to illness or family emergency. Absences due to vacations or other reasons will be granted make-ups pending teacher availability. Cancellations of less than 24 hours or no-shows will be charged at the full lesson rate. You are responsible for keeping track of your missed lessons and for scheduling your make-up lessons. Make-up's must be redeemed within two months of the absence, and cannot be accrued or redeemed outside of this time period. I will do my best to make up every missed lesson due to illness (mine or yours), with the understanding that this may not always be possible. There will be no reduction in monthly tuition or refunds granted for missed lessons.
If you intend to discontinue lessons at any point, please give one month notice to allow for your spot to be offered to an incoming student. In the event of departure from the studio with less than one month’s notice, you will be billed and responsible for the tuition for one full month after your departure date.
