Kate's Music Studio

Violin & Fiddle Lessons

Studio Policy + Tuition

Please see the Studio Calendar page for complete listing of Workshop Classes and Concerts. 

LESSON POLICY
Parents are required to attend all lessons and to take notes during lessons. It is encouraged that the same parent attend each week (the practice parent), although I understand there are exceptions!

WORKSHOPS!
Workshops offer an opportunity for students to explore different styles of music together in unique arrangements while forming bonds with each other musically and socially.   Workshops are selected according to the student’s experience and playing ability.  A student may sign up for more than one Workshop.  Attendance at the same monthly Workshop(s) is required. Workshops happen the first full week of each month.

TUITION
Tuition includes weekly semi-private & private lessons, all Workshop classes and concerts as well as community activities.

Tuition is paid forward and is due the last week of each month. (i.e. April tuition is due last week of March) It is non-refundable. Late payments will be assessed a $25 late fee.  Please make checks payable to Kate’s Music Studio.  I am happy to accept auto-payments from your bank and can also accept credit cards with an additional charge.  Thank you!

MAKE-UP LESSON POLICY
It is bittersweet, but due to a completely full studio, I am not able to offer make up lessons.  I encourage families to swap a Pod date with each other to make up for days they know they will miss. This system also works well for a family looking to make up lesson time.  Please notify me of any changes.

SICK POLICY
Despite my best efforts, I rarely get through a year completely cold-free.  Therefore, I reserve 3 sick days/ year for myself. There are no make ups nor refunds for these sick days.
