  Tuition, Fees, and Payment    

Payments may be made:

  • By cash, post-dated cheque or e-transfer

  • Either as full semester payment upon signing contract or in monthly installments before the first lesson of the month

There is an annual administrative fee of $20 to be included with the first payment. The student is responsible for all costs related to educational material, however, Carmelia is available to recommend and source materials (to be reimbursed afterwards).

For full tuition details, please contact me directly.

  Absences and Cancellations   

Lessons can be rescheduled or made up in the following cases only:

  • At least 24-hour notice is given

  • Sudden illness, injury, or other emergency

Make-up lessons

  • Make-up lessons cannot be rescheduled

  • Any lessons that have not been rescheduled by the end of the contract will be forfeited and non-refundable

 

The teacher may also cancel lessons with appropriate notice or due to illness. The student can choose either to reschedule the missed lesson or be credited the amount on the following contract.

  Terminating Lessons    

Students are expected to participate in all lessons as laid out in the contract. If a student becomes disinterested or discouraged, please bring it to the teacher's attention immediately so we can try to resolve it together for everyone's benefit!

While music-making can be incredibly fun and rewarding, it does take discipline and a solid commitment. In the case that a student wishes to terminate a contract before the specified term is completed, at least one month's written notice is required. One month's tuition will be due if a student wishes to terminate the contract immediately.

The studio also reserves the right to reject applications or terminate a contract for reasons including poor practice habits, lack of interest, poor attitude or behaviour. The studio may or may not refer the student to a different teacher, instrument, or activity.
