The following guidelines have been based on the research and experience of the instructors at Panharmonic Music Studio. You have the right to expect quality teaching including responsibility, punctuality, cheerfulness, and patience. Setting these guidelines allows us to do our job as educators and to maintain regularity in our schedule.
We reserve the right to revise this policy at any time to better serve you and our families. Any revision of the policy will be communicated to you before the changes take effect.
I. Music Foundations Class
Weekly classes are approximately 60 minutes. Scholars will learn scales, intervals, and much more that will provide a musical foundation to learn any instrument including the Steel Drums.
Scholars will need a notebook and pencil for this class. A keyboard or piano is needed at home to practice.
II. Price of Lessons
Our annual tuition is broken down into monthly payments of $120 per student per 60 minutes at Star Pointe Academy. The teachers spend a lot of time preparing for each lesson.
Monthly tuition is due the 1st of each month. We use Teacher Zone for automated monthly payments. There is a $20 late fee.
The student is responsible for purchasing any books and supplies that the teacher feels the student needs in order to develop properly.
All tuition and fees are non-refundable.
A. Missed Lessons
A student who does not attend a lesson will simply miss the benefit of that lesson. There are no refunds, discounts or makeups given.
B. Teacher Cancellations
The teacher reserves the right to cancel lessons at any time (e.g., holidays, illness, etc.). There are no refunds, discounts or makeups given.
Students who are ill should not come to lessons. We reserve the right to send a student home if they arrive sick. If students will miss their lesson, please call/text their teacher.
At each lesson, the teacher will clearly explain the student’s practicing assignment for that week. The student is expected to complete the assignments by the next lesson.
The duration of the practice depends on the student’s age and progress. Start out with short, focused practices at the same time(s) every day. Consistency is key and a daily routine provides great progress. Set your child up for success by helping them make their music practice a daily habit.
Remember: Practice does NOT make perfect; Practice makes PERMANENT!
V. Discontinued Lessons
Occasionally, a student will want to quit, but it is a decision that should be made thoughtfully and discussed by the parent/guardian, teacher, and student so that lessons can end on a positive note. For discontinued lessons before the year is over, the student/parent will be charged a Cancellation Fee of $120.00 to be paid before the student's last lesson.
