Music Studio Policy

Please read this music studio policy page carefully before signing up for lessons. Be sure you understand and agree to each of these policies.

Music Lessons

You may schedule flute and piano lessons online at Lessons last for 30 minutes. Afternoon and evening lesson times are available.

All lessons are remote or virtual, using Zoom as the lesson platform, and Google Classroom for assignments and communications.

Attendance at each lesson matters. Please be ready with all materials and all necessary equipment in place before your assigned lesson time.


Prepayment for all music lessons is required at the time of scheduling. Credit card payments through the site are both safe and secure.

Failure to pay for lessons results in one warning; further lessons are canceled until payment is received.


All students need regular access to an instrument for daily practice. Please have an instrument available for your student.

I expect all students to practice. While I understand that life doesn’t always go according to plan, missing practice times should be the exception, not the rule. Practice time will be based on age and ability levels.

It is important that each student practices regularly. Practice enables a student to learn and make progress. Please, do not schedule lessons for a student who will not practice.

Missed Lessons

If you must miss a lesson, please provide as much advance notice as possible.

I do not do makeup lessons, but I will prepare and upload an individualized lesson for you/your student with advance notice of a missed lesson. Without advance notice of a lesson cancellation, you will not receive a recorded lesson, nor will your account be credited in any way.

If the teacher must miss a lesson, we will work with you to reschedule that lesson at your convenience or refund or credit the cost of that lesson.

Discontinuation of Lessons

I understand that, for different reasons, a student may wish to discontinue lessons with me. Please give at least two weeks advance notice of your decision. No refunds will be given for discontinuing lessons before the end of your prepaid lessons.

You may give notice via email, at or by text or phone call to 847-404-7025.

I have the right to discontinue lessons at any time, if necessary, because of blatant disrespect, bad language, or inappropriate/inexcusable misbehavior.

Contact Me
