Semester Commitment

If you sign up for lessons, it is expected that you will commit for the entire semester. If you choose to discontinue lessons mid-semester, I must have 30 days advance notice in writing.  If I am not notified in time, you will be responsible to pay the next month’s tuition.

  • Fall Semester: September – December
  • Winter/Spring Semester: January – May
  • Summer Semester: June – August (Summer tuition will be adjusted in advance to accommodate vacations.)

Attendance

  • Tuition remains the same regardless of how many lessons you are able to attend.
  • Lessons are given 4x/month, except for December and May which will have 3 lessons.

Makeup Lessons

Makeup lessons are offered ONLY IF I am notified at least 24 hours in advance.   If I am not notified in time, you will forfeit your lesson.  If I have a conflict, I will always offer a makeup lesson.  

Health Policy

After the current COVID-19 pandemic has subsided, if you or anyone in your household are sick in any way, please DO NOT come to your lesson in person.  Contact me as soon as possible and we will do a video lesson via Google Duo or ZOOM instead.

Studio Performance Calendar

I will provide masterclasses, recitals, and festivals. You will be notified by September each year of specific performance details and dates.

Student Referral Reward

If you refer a student to me and they start flute lessons, you will receive one month of FREE tuition.

The more you practice, the more you will progress.  It is that simple. You should practice at least 5 days a week. Recommendations are listed below:

  • Early beginner students: 20 minutes a day
  • Elementary School:  30 minutes a day
  • Junior High: 45 minutes a day
  • High School: 1-2 hours a day
