Studio Policy

The purpose of  the studio policy is to ensure that everyone is treated fairly and that the studio runs smoothly.  

Your lesson time is reserved exclusively for your student. Please plan your calendars in advance and try to keep your child’s lesson times free of appointments and other conflicts. 

Regular practice at home is vital for advancement and proficiency.  On-time attendance at the lesson is important.  Please drop off and pick up on time and make sure your child is safely inside before leaving. 

No gum, food or drinks are allowed in the studio. Silence all cell phones (students' and parents' phones). 

Students are expected to attend lessons for the entire studio year from  August  to June. Lessons are encouraged during the Summer Session.


  • There are NO refunds or credits for ANY missed lessons, unless it is a lesson missed by the teacher.
  • 24 hours notice is required for cancellation of a lesson.
  • Make-up lessons are not guaranteed and are strictly subject to available openings due to another student canceling their lesson. 
  • Available make-up times will be posted on an online signup sheet.  You are responsible to check the signup sheet to reserve a time.  Make-up lessons for 2019-2020 may be taken any time from August 26, 2019  to June 19, 2020 and do not carry over into the 2020 summer session. 
  • If your student is unable to attend a group lesson, please email Carol to arrange to attend a different group. Missed group lessons will not be made up. 


If a student will miss several lessons due to a schedule conflict in order to participate in another on-going activity (vacation, sports events, school/church activity, etc.), their lesson time will be held open provided tuition is paid for the absences. 

Alternatively you can arrange a mutual swap with another currently enrolled student provided Carol knows of and approves the swap in advance of the lessons. Please keep in mind that siblings may swap with siblings.


The studio is open even in the event of inclement weather due to snow/ice/school closure.

If you are unable to make it to your lesson, you may cancel by using the studio website. Click on "Makeup Lessons" fill in the form, then press 'submit.'  

You will be eligible for a makeup lesson provided you cancel BEFORE your lesson time begins.


Email ( and phone (360-882-4678) are the preferred methods of contact. Please do not text my cellphone. It is silenced during lessons.
