CONTRACTED STUDENTS (flute or piano)

  1. Payment for each is due in full at the first lesson of the month.
  2. For each week that payment is late, there will be a $10 fee.
  3. Students who begin after the first week of the month will receive a pro-rated rate for the first month.
  4. If the teacher teaches the lesson outside of her studio, it is understood that travel times are estimated and approximate, but that upon arrival the lesson will have the intended duration (i.e., if the teach is late due to traveling, the start and end time of the lesson will be adjusted).
  5. If a student needs to miss a lesson for any reason, the lesson will only be made up at the teacher's discretion. Under no circumstances will the rate for that or the following month be lowered or any payment be refunded.
  6. Should the teacher have a schedule conflict with a lesson, notice will be given as soon as possible and the lesson will be rescheduled. Again, no rate reduction or refund will be issued.
  7. Method books, work books, exercises, etc that are original to the teacher will be provided to contracted students free of charge. These materials are © Cari Kramer. It is, however, the responsibility of the student to print or reproduce these materials. The teacher will charge only for the cost of printing if necessary.
  8. Any required materials (instrument, music NOT written by the teacher, etc) are the responsibility of the student to purchase or obtain.
  9. Required notice for terminating lessons is 30 days. This term applies whether the student is able to attend the final lessons or not. 
  10. The teacher may terminate lessons at any time, for any reason. If not all of the paid-for lessons have been given at time of termination, the teacher will issue a refund of the remaining lessons. 

FLEX STUDENTS (flute only)

  1. Payment must be issued at each lesson and must be paid in cash. If payment is not available at the time of the lesson, no lesson will be given.

  3. Flex lessons will only be held at the teacher's studio.
  4. All required materials (including materials written by the teacher) must be purchased by the student to be used in a lesson. 
  5. There is no required notice for cancellation or termination.
