Studio Policies

Effective 1/1/2017
  1. Tuition is billed monthly.

  2. Tuition is due by the first class of each month (no later than the 7th) regardless of cancelations, no-shows, or rescheduled classes. Tuition holds the scheduled time slot for the month.

  3. Cancelled classes must be rescheduled within the month they are cancelled.

  4. It is the Student/Parent’s responsibility to reschedule classes, not the instructor’s. Cancelling and rescheduling classes can be streamlined by registering and using the student portal.

  5. Classes cancelled with less than a 24 hour notice cannot be rescheduled.

  6. Students who schedule less than 3 lessons in a month will be charged the drop-in rate.

  7. Students who wish to take extended time off and retain their regular time slot must pay a holding fee of $40 per month.

  8. Classes will not be adjusted for late arrival.

  9. If a student is more than 15 minutes late for class the lesson will be considered cancelled.

  10. Parents of minors must remain in the vicinity of the studio during their child’s lesson.

  11. Parents are welcome to sit in on all lessons but should remember to maintain a quiet and respectful learning environment.

  12. Fees: Returned checks $35, Late Tuition $15, Holding Fee $40

  13. Each parent or guardian should become familiar with these class policies regardless of whether or not they are responsible for bringing students to their lessons.

  14. Exceptions to the class policies are granted on a limited, case by case, basis. Please speak with your instructor if you have concerns regarding class policies.


  • In addition to maintaining my private studio I work professionally with local theatre groups and high schools. As a working professional I am able to bring my experience back to the studio and share new ideas and inspiration with my students. Occasionally it may be necessary for me to rearrange my studio schedule to accommodate my non-studio work. These disruptions are generally temporary and of a short duration, usually lasting no more than a week.
  • Class policies are subject to change without prior notice; however, students and parents will be afforded the opportunity to review new policies before they are implemented.
