Sun, Oct 20: Sat, Dec 14: Fri, June 6: 6/3-6/6:
TUITION is due at the first lesson of the month or by the 7th of the month.
I will put the tuition reminder on the student’s assignment. Please pay the late fee if you pay after the 7th and other arrangements have not been made. Late fee-$10.
Tuition is based upon a 12 month, year round program, running from August through July. All months will be the regular tuition. It doesn’t matter how many lessons are in the month. Each month’s tuition is the same. There are 39 lessons total per year.
60 MIN. GROUP LESSON: $87 per month.
PRIVATE LESSONS: Several times during the year, private students will have a 1-hour group lesson INSTEAD of a private lesson for that week.
30 MIN PRIVATE LESSON + RESOURCE TIME: $109 per month.
45 MIN PRIVATE LESSON + RES. TIME: $154 per month.
SNOW DAY POLICY: Please do not assume because school is canceled due to snow that piano is canceled. Because piano is later in the day, there are many snow days that I still teach. Please call to check the day of the lesson. If lessons do have to be canceled because of snow, I will try very hard to figure out a make up schedule.
PERFORMANCE OPPORTUNITIES FOR ALL STUDENTS:
FALL STUDIO RECITAL is Sun, Oct 20th at the Promise Church. Times are 2:00, 3:00, 4:00. Each family will be assigned to one recital time. There is a $10.00 recital fee per family to cover the rental. The address of the church is 12648 E. 116th Street, Fishers.
ENSEMBLE RECITAL: I am working on a venue for an ensemble concert for us. The concert we have participated in before is during the Music Teachers National Convention this year. Since I am attending the convention in Chicago, I am working on a different Ensemble Recital for us. Details coming soon …
SPRING STUDIO RECITAL is Fri, June 6th at the Promise Church. Times are 6:00, 7:00 or 8:00. Each family will be assigned to one recital time. There is a $10.00 recital fee per family to cover the rental. All students are expected to participate in the spring recital.
NATIONAL PIANO GUILD AUDITIONS: June 3-6, 2014 at Fishers United Methodist Church, 9691 E 116th St, Fishers. The Guild Auditions give the student a chance to play 3-10 memorized pieces for a judge. The student is judged by how well he plays the music and all students can receive a first place rating. There is a entry fee of $24-$44, depending on how many pieces are played. This is quite an accomplishment and a great way to end the school year.
MISSED LESSONS I’m sure you noticed when I sent out the schedule that my schedule Is very full this year. Please, please do not schedule doctor, dentist appointments during your piano time. It will be very hard for me to offer you a make-up time. I’m teaching until 9:00pm every night.
ONCE A WEEK GROUP LESSON STUDENTS: If you cannot come to your regularly scheduled lesson, please let me know IN ADVANCE. Look on your child’s lesson assignment. At the top, there should be a list of other times available at that level. You are welcome to make up the lesson in the week you miss or the week after. To help your child the most, make the class up as soon as you are able. If you cannot come to a group lesson you forfeit the time. Regardless of whether the lesson is made up or not, tuition is still payable for that week. Please do not ask for a refund or credit.
PRIVATE LESSON STUDENTS: I can try to trade your lesson with another private student if you cannot come at your scheduled time. Please give me AT LEAST A WEEK’S NOTICE to work on this! In most instances, when you cancel a lesson I am not able to fill your time. So I sit with an empty time slot.
All students are required to take piano lessons in the summer, if you wish to continue in the fall. In the summer you need to pay the regular monthly tuition fee. The studio is open 3 weeks in June and 3 weeks in July. I will offer the 2 hour camps again in July, so you will only need to come 1 or 2 weeks in July . If you cannot make all summer weeks, you may need to come twice in one week. You may also attend your regular class at a different time, if it is available. Payment is still due at the beginning of the month in June and July.
LET’S HAVE A GREAT YEAR TOGETHER! ! Sally Eppert
