In order to maintain the highest standards in teaching, as well as to secure your students spot on the schedule we charge a monthly tuition regardless of missed lessons. If lessons are missed for any reason, you have 2 months to come in for a make-up lesson. You are also allowed to give that missed lesson to a friend or family member as a gift. Please note, if you know you will be gone a certain week, you are still responsible for monthly tuition.
