Music lessons & Policies

Tuition
Monthly tuition is due at the first of every month. Tuition can be paid via an invoice you are emailed prior to the first of every month. All replies should be directed to tuition@bluefrogschoolofmusic.com. Tuition pays for 4 weekly lessons per month. In the event of a 5th day in a month, your teacher will use that time for make up lessons rather than the usual weekly lessons. There is a $35 fee for any late payments. If payment is not received, lessons will be placed on hold until payment, including the late fee, is received.

Monthly Rates
30 minute lesson slot: $135/month
45 minute lesson slot: $202.50/month
60 minute lesson slot: $270/month
(NOTE: There is 4% fee for credit card payments)

Practice Protocols
Students are expected to practice their lesson materials daily. Since a student only sees their teacher once a week, it is imperative for their musical growth that they practice regularly. Parental involvement is extremely important for a young student's success. Parents of any students under the age of 8 will be asked to be present for their child's lesson to be able to help with lesson materials at home. If a student is frequently attending lessons without being prepared, it is the teacher's obligation to speak with the student and parents about proper practice habits. If lack of lesson preparation persists, the student will be subject to a lesson dismissal and/or termination from lessons.

Recitals
Recitals are held twice per year in December and in May. We do not charge an additional fee for recitals. They are included in the cost of tuition as a 4th lesson for the relevant month. There are 3 private lessons and one recital in the months of December and May.


Cancellations
Please allow at least 48 hours notice for lesson cancellations. This provides enough time for your teacher to fill that time slot. Students are allowed one make up per semester for a canceled lesson. Last minute cancellations or missed lessons will not be made up. In the event of a family emergency, make up lessons will be subject to your teacher's availability. Should your teacher need to miss a lesson, a make up lesson will be scheduled.

Termination
Permanent lesson cancellation requires a one month/30 day notice. This includes needing to cancel lessons during the summer months. If notification is given mid- month, a prorated amount of tuition will be due for the following month. The student is welcome to attend their regular weekly time until the cancellation period is finished. Lesson termination also forfeits the time slot to other prospective students. Please know that we are a year round school. Our summer months continue as per the rest of the year. Should you desire to take the summer off or even a portion of it and would like to resume upon your return, you might want to consider paying for lessons at your preferred time. Try to attend as many as you can. Otherwise, once you terminate, the student will be removed from the school's roster.

Contact
Due to the number of students on your teacher's calendar, email is the preferred method of contact. Text messages can be more difficult to keep track of and archive. Unless you are notifying your teacher that you are running late, etc., please use email for questions regarding lessons and schedules rather than texting.
