Policy and Fees

Introductory Interview
Please feel free to contact me to arrange for a free, informal introductory interview. This first meeting will allow me to assess your needs and expectations as a student. It will also allow you to evaluate my services as a piano instructor, including comfort level, personalities, lesson expectations,  schedule accommodations and specific concerns teaching various age groups. I look forward to learning about your musical background (if any) and level. This gives us the opportunity to talk in depth about the lesson structure, practice time, fees, policies and any other questions or concerns you may have before starting lessons.

$45 / half hour
$90 / hour

Tuition Remittance Schedule
All lessons meet by appointment, usually once a week or once every other week as agreed upon during the introductory interview, payable on the first lesson for the first month. Thereafter, monthly tuition is due at the first lesson of each month and subsequently applied to lessons for the entire month.

Cancellation/Makeup Lesson Policy
Students must notify Soong Piano Studio of a lesson cancellation a minimum of 24 hours prior to lesson time. If at least 24 hours’ notice is given, then a makeup lesson will be scheduled at the earliest possible date. If less than 24 hours’ notice is given, students will be charged for the scheduled lesson and no makeup lesson will be given. Students are given the opportunity for 4 makeup lessons/year. However, should students exceed the allotted 4 makeup lessons, full charges will be applied for subsequent missed lessons with the additional penalty of not being allowed to schedule makeup lessons. If the instructor cancels a lesson due to unforeseen/special circumstances, students will be reimbursed fully and rescheduled at both parties’ earliest convenience.

All federal and state holidays will be observed.
