Students will need to buy music for study at home. The teacher will purchase the music and the student will reimburse them for this. Generally, students use $40-45 worth of music in a year. The Lab Program has a lending library that is used for sight-reading only.


If a student is withdrawn from the program before the first lesson, all tuition will be refunded. For students who drop during the semester, refunds are available for unused lessons through the 6th week. After the 6th week, tuition is forfeited.

Missed Lessons Policy

It is the expectation that the teacher and student will schedule lessons on the same day and time for the whole semester.  Teachers can occasionally reschedule a lesson if a 24-hour notice has been given and their schedule allows it.  Lessons missed due to illness, forgetfulness, or school or family conflicts cannot be made up.

If your teacher misses a lesson for any reason, they will reschedule the lesson.
