I charge a monthly tuition for weekly lessons, due the first lesson of the month. Tuition remains the same regardless of attendance. In most months we have 4 lesson times and when we have a 5th lesson it serves as a built in make-up lesson for any absences or holidays. With 24 hours notice of a cancellation I am always happy to schedule a make-up lesson (if you are sick we can reschedule with same day notice). If you are going to be on vacation we can schedule make-up lessons or pro-rate your tuition accordingly with advanced notice. The Percussion Studio is open year round with the exception of the following holidays: Martin Luther King Day, Fat Tuesday, Spring Break week, Memorial Day, July 4th,Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and the week between Christmas and New Years. Please let me know if you have any questions.
