Studio policy for September -May  (important please read)

 

We will no longer be able to offer make-up lessons, which have become increasingly difficult to schedule. We are now offering multiple free classes throughout the school year. (see calendar) These will be available not only for students who have missed lessons but for anyone who wants to take advantage of them.

All snow cancellations and teacher absences, that we don’t have a sub for, will be made up in a timely manner. We will either extend lesson times, add an extra day during a time the studio is closed or do a Skype lesson. 

Our tuition is based on 35 lessons between September and the end of May. (Check calendar for last day of lessons) Closings for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter break are not counted in the 35 lessons. Tuition for those 35 classes has been equally divided so that the monthly payments are all the same. For those students starting mid-year, the monthly tuition will still be the same except for the first month. For instance, if there are only 3 weeks in the month you start, you will only be charged for 3 weeks and then the monthly flat rate each following month. Tuition is due the first lesson of each month, no exceptions. We prefer auto pay but will also accept online credit payment, check or cash.  

To discontinue lessons you must give the studio a 30 day notice, in writing. No exceptions.  We request a credit card on file to be billed only if lessons are discontinued or paused within the 30-day notice. 

​***Please note that if you choose to stop lessons during the summer the teacher will not be able to hold your lesson time and you will be charged a $35 registration when you return. ​

 

Monthly tuition is a flat rate based on 35 weeks of lessons from September through the end of May. The 12 lessons from June through August are billed separately. ​Tuition is due the first lesson of each month. A late fee of $25 will be added after the 15th of the month.

Tuition September-May $990 or $110 monthly

Tuition June-August $330 or $110 monthly​

All new and returning students will be charged a one-time $35 registration fee. ​

 

 

Summer Policies for June -August (important please read)

 

Our summer schedule is a little more flexible than our school year lessons. That being said for the sake of our teachers we do ask the following.

 

1. Please let us know the weeks you will not be attending lessons by the beginning of each month.

 

2. If you commit to come to lessons a certain week then you will be expected to be there or forfeit your lesson for that week. There will not be any make up lessons in the summer, unless advanced notice is given and the schedule is worked out to be agreeable to the teacher. 

 

3. If you would like to add weeks on please notify the studio via email and that can be worked out.

 

4. If the teacher needs to miss a week due to sickness or vacation, they will have a sub covering their lessons that week

 

 

Students attending Meredith Middle and Appoquinimink High can take the 4:15 or

4:30 pm afterschool bus to S Music Studio at the Barn, 121 W. Cochran St. Middletown starting in September 2019. Call studio for class schedule.
