Lessons-Studio Policies


for lessons call 954-270-5061 or email estesjw@gmail.com

Registration and Tuition Fees: Annual registration  is $40.00 per student, $50.00 per family.

Lessons are normally 1/2 hour per week, but hour lessons can be arranged.  1/2 hour lessons are $38 or $130 per month for 10 months. 

 Tuition payments are to be made in  10 or 12  monthly installments (beginning at the first lesson in the annual  lesson series, and due the first lesson of each month). This is a payment plan and you are paying for the total number of lessons in the year, not the total number of lessons in a month. (12 month plan includes summer lessons). Lessons which begin after August will be pro-rated.

Practice: Successful musical study requires a three-way partnership between teacher, student and parents.  It is important for parents to monitor practice times and to support your children’s music studies by listening to their lessons at least several times each week . beginners should practice 15 minutes per day, 6 days a week; intermediate level 30minutes a day; advanced 1 hour plus each day.

Missed Lessons: Missed lessons will be made up at the teacher’s discretion depending on time available (no more than two per year, 24 hour notice required). If student is sick please do not come to lessons to avoid the spreading of any colds, viruses, etc. Lessons cancelled by teacher will be rescheduled. With regards to hurricane closings, we will allow for only one make-up per season.

Student Conduct: Students are expected to come to their lesson prepared and ready to learn. The student’s assignment book and all books currently in use should be brought to the lesson.
