Lesson Regulation

1, Lessons are billed monthly and the fee is due in advance (by cash, cheque or online payment).

2, Audition: Non-beginner students are required to take an audition (one scale, one piece) with parents in order to be accepted to the studio.

3, Absent: If you are absent, you will still be charged unless you give me a notice. This is to give me time to rearrange my timetable and give notice to other students. (Make up lesson or refund will be made only if any absents cause by school activities or bad weather.)

4, Makeup lesson: If you provide sufficient notice, I will make up the lesson at a different time. If I am unable to teach a lesson for any reason, I will make up the lesson (or issue a refund).
