Fees & Studio Policies 2020-21

Semester Payments:

  • There are four semesters each year: September – mid-November, mid-November to January, February – mid-April and mid-April- June
  • Payments will be made at or before the first lesson of the semester.
  • Payment can be made by bank transfer, cash, or cheque. Cash payments must include the correct change and placed in an envelope labelled with the student’s name.
  • There is a €50 registration fee payable when registering. This holds your spot in the studio and goes towards the cost of books and materials throughout the year.
  • Fees cover the cost of tuition, all materials, copies of the most up-to-date method and supplementary books (except for exam books), access to the best and most up-to-date resources and a library of manipulative games. Each student receives their own copy of any method/supplementary books. Optional events (exams) will be paid for by the parent/student.

Monthly Payments:

  • Payments will be made at or before the first lesson of each month.
  • The monthly payment is divided evenly between the 10 months from September to June inclusive.
  • There is a €50 registration fee payable when registering. This holds your spot in the studio and goes towards the cost of books and materials throughout the year.
  • Fees cover the cost of tuition, all materials, studio licences for the most up-to-date method and supplementary books (except for exam books) that students need , access to the best and most up-to-date resources and a library of manipulative games. Each student receives their own copy or copies of any method/supplementary books. Optional events (exams) will be paid for by the parent/student.

Schedule:

  • Lessons are scheduled at a mutually agreed day and time when the student has completed registration.
  • If a student/parent wishes to change their lesson time during the year this can be discussed on a case-by-case basis. A different time slot is subject to availability cannot be guaranteed.
  • Tuition also includes student workshops arranged by me during the year and a recital opportunity.

Missed Lessons:

  • If a student will be missing their lesson for any reason, please inform me via text or email with as much notice as possible so we can organise a video or online lesson.
  • If for any reason the teacher has to cancel a lesson, she will offer a make-up lesson at a suitable time.
  • In the case of mild illness (cough, cold, etc) or inclement weather lessons will be done online via Zoom, Whatsapp, Messenger video call or other video messaging service.

Punctuality:

  • If a student is late this simply takes time out of the lesson, i.e. the lesson will start when the student arrives and will still finish at the same time.

Flexiblity: Online, In-Person or a Hybrid of the two!

  • For families with time constraints or difficulties arriving on time due to heavy traffic, inclement weather, family scheduling conflicts, etc the option of online tuition is available. I have been exclusively teaching online since March 2020 and if you wish to see how this works I’d be more than happy to schedule a video call. I’m more than happy to accommodate your requirements.
