Studio Policies 2019/2020

Cancellation Policy

Notice within 24 hours

If I am notified within 24 hours of the lesson that the student cannot attend, I cannot make-up or refund the lesson.

Notice greater than 24 hours

If I am notified with more than 24 hours’ notice, I will try my best to re-schedule the lesson for the same week it is missed (most likely at the end of my teaching day – 7:00 pm or later). If the lesson is unable to be re-scheduled for the same week it is missed, the lesson cannot be refunded or made-up.


Lessons take place in my home at 2948 Oriole St. Please park your car in the driveway, not the road (don’t worry about blocking in the silver Yaris).


I prefer to teach without parents sitting in on the lesson, so learning can be more organic. There is Hillside Coffee and Tea and parks nearby. Students are to use the entrance behind the black gate. They can quietly let themselves in if I am already in a lesson.

Please drop off and pick up your child on time as I have back-to-back lessons.

I encourage students to wash their hands with soap before their lesson to prevent the spread of germs and keep colds at bay. There is a bathroom right beside my music room which students are welcome to use as needed.
