Miss Shannon's Music Studio strives to achieve the highest standards in music education by providing the community with experienced and educated teachers. We provide a comfortable environment ideal for nurturing creativity, family bonding, self-esteem, focus, confidence, and emotional development. We hope to provide a love and foundation of music from babies to adults.
STUDENT & FAMILY RESPONSIBILITIES
Students agree to arrive at each lesson punctually, well-prepared, and with their assignment books and music. To make good progress, daily quality practice is necessary. I want you to completely understand every assignment. Please ask questions. Practicing guidelines are as follows: Practice 4 - 7 days a week for 15 to 30 minutes a session or as instructed by your teacher.
If something is happening at home or school that is affecting your child, please let us know. Please err on the side of letting us know more so we can be sensitive to the needs of your child. A quick text on the way to lesson can make the difference between a great lesson and a difficult one. (Did Max just find out that he didn't get the part in the play? Give me a heads up. Was Jane hospitalized on your recent trip to Thailand? Let us know!)
Students are to be respectful of all the Studio’s instruments and property; including restrooms, lobby area, and parking lot.
All students are expected to continue lessons during the Summer to hold their time for the Fall semester. Three lessons in the Summer are required. If you cannot attend the lessons and prefer to hold your place for the Fall semester, a fee of $60 will be invoiced and due by June 1st.
Tuition covers not only the actual lesson time spent with the student, but time preparing for each student as well. This includes:
• An individualized plan for each student's course of study
• Development of teaching materials, often including pieces composed specifically for your child
• Training and experience
• Recital preparation and repertoire planning
• Professional organization memberships
• Continuing education
• Music lending library
Tuition is due monthly. Seven days before the 1st of the first of the month, you will receive an invoice via email for your monthly tuition. Full tuition is due by the 1st of the month. A late notice will be issued on the 10th of the month. If your invoice is not paid in full by the 21st of the month, a late fee of $25 will be assessed. If special arrangements need to be for the month, please contact the Studio. This does not apply to Musikgarten students.

MUSIC & MATERIALS FEE
Each student pays a Music and Materials fee. Book and material fees are "as needed". This covers all music and materials used during the entire course of the semester. The music and materials fee will be paid with tuition for the month when books and materials are received.
• Literature Books
• Sheet Music and Method Books
• Theory Materials • Printing Costs
• Accompanist Fees
Each student pays a yearly registration fee of $25. This fee is due annually each August and will be included in tuition. This is automatically added to your first payment. And then each August as you continue. This pays for the cost of running the music studio as well as the time spent doing things in addition to actual teaching.
CANCELLATION POLICY - Important – Please read closely as this policy will be strictly enforced.
Lessons must be cancelled 24 hours in advance of your lesson. We will try to reschedule your lesson if you provide a 24 hour notice. If your lesson cannot be rescheduled, your payment may be transferred to the next month. If you do not call or do not show up for a lesson, payment is still expected. Inclement weather days will be determined by Noon on day of lesson. If we deem it is not safe for your lesson, we will email, put out message on social media, and send a text alert. We understand that sometimes emergencies happen. Please call as soon as possible if an emergency arises so that we can work with you on rescheduling.
Please review the policy below. You will be asked to accepted or decline the policy on the registration form. All photos may be used on social media and website unless you decline.
