Lesson Policies

  • Lessons are scheduled for the same time each week.
  • Payment is due the first lesson of the month for the entire month. If payment is consistently late, the student may be removed from the schedule.
  • Lessons missed by the student are non-refundable. Lessons missed by the instructor will be credited.
  • If you know in advance that you can’t make a lesson, provided at least 48 hours notice is given, an alternative lesson time can sometimes be offered, although this may be at an alternative venue. If this lesson is missed there will be no additional times offered. There are no make up lessons at Northern Pine during fall/winter/spring  semesters, (you will receive a separate lesson policy sheet when scheduling at this venue).
  • Regular, preferably daily, practice is essential to progress and in the case of Suzuki students, this should be combined with daily listening. 
  • For Suzuki students, regular attendance at the scheduled group lessons is strongly encouraged.
  • Finally, remember that learning an instrument is a lifelong pursuit and that as musicians, we never stop learning, so enjoy each step!
