TIME: Lessons will be either thirty minutes, forty-five minutes, or one hour in length.
COST: The default pricing is Thirty-Five dollars ($35.00 plus tax) per half-hour lesson; Fifty-Two dollars and Fifty cents ($52.50 plus tax) per 45-minute lesson; Seventy dollars ($70.00 plus tax) per full-hour lesson.
PAYMENT: Payment can be made online from the Student Portal or by clicking the link in the monthly invoice. We also receive payments by debit/credit card face to face. Checks and cash are also an option for payment. Please make checks payable to AARON SHAKAL. Lessons will be billed on a monthly basis on the first of each month, or due at the beginning of each lesson. Monthly bills will be considered late on the 10th day of each month and will incur a late fee of Ten dollars ($10.00). Monthly bills are sent out by email and available immediately on the Student Portal. Checks should be remitted at the first lesson each month and will total the cost of the number of lessons to be taken during the month. If other payment arrangements are needed, we can discuss it during the next time we meet.
ATTENDANCE: As an added protection for the student and the teacher, all minors should be accompanied by an adult. If an adult cannot be in attendance, the lesson can and will be recorded with a link to the video sent to the guardian, and we will add an additional Five dollars ($5.00) video charge to the next bill for each lesson that the parent/guardian/adult cannot attend. It is strongly encouraged that a parent or guardian attend all lessons. This will help to encourage the piano student and enable the parent/guardian to better help the piano student during practice times throughout the week. In addition, any lessons to be scheduled with an adult lady alone will also be recorded with a link sent to the student. However, since it is not a minor, no additional charge will be added. This is simply for added protection for the student and the teacher. There is always a private camera feed active as a security precaution to the studio.
CANCELLATIONS: Lessons cancelled with twenty-four (24) hours advanced notice will be rescheduled, schedule permitting, or a credit lesson will be applied towards the next month. Students are responsible to pay for lessons cancelled without twenty-four hours’ notice. No refund will be given for no-shows or tardiness. We do allow 1 sick day credit per summer or semester. If you think you will be delayed, please call to let me know if you will be coming.
STUDIO PHONE: The Studio phone number is (702) 848-4855. Please feel free to call or text between the hours of 8AM and 8 PM if you have any cancellations, questions, or need to arrange a conference. If I am teaching or unavailable, my voicemail will take your message.
It is my sincerest hope that you understand the necessity of establishing a STUDIO POLICY. If you have questions regarding this policy, don’t hesitate to call.
