Tuition is due by the first of each month from September 2023 to June 2024.
Monthly Tuition Payments are based on a FULL SCHOOL YEAR and divided by 10 months. Consequently, some months might have three lessons and other months might have five lessons – but the monthly tuition payment remains the same.
Payments may be made by Interac e-Transfer, Visa/MasterCard, or Pre-Authorized Debit. Credit card payments will be charged an extra 3%.
There are no lessons on statutory holidays or during Christmas Break & Spring Break. These days have not been included in the monthly tuition.
Students are required to complete their practice assignments each week.
A regular time should be set aside each day for practice in order to establish a practice routine. Daily practice is essential for reinforcement of concepts and to avoid cramming just before the lesson, which is never successful.
Students who do not practice between lessons will progress very slowly, or possibly not at all.
Karla’s guidelines for how long to practice:
Ages 4 to 6: 5 minutes each day
Ages 6 to 8: 10 minutes each day
Ages 9 to 11: 15 minutes each day
Ages 12 and older: 20 minutes each day
Students preparing for RCM exams need to double or triple the above recommended minutes. .
Missing a Lesson
Lessons missed by the student (for any reason) will not be made up or refunded.
Any lessons cancelled by Karla will be rescheduled for the soonest available time. If a makeup lesson is not possible, a refund will be provided.
While most families understand the missed lesson policy, sometimes they are looking for more information on why I have the policies I do. The following article hopes to make sense of this issue in the private music lesson world: https://keymobilemusic.com/makeuplessons -Makeup Lessons from an Economist’s Point of View- Article Copyright 2001 Vicky Barham
During lessons, recitals, and other performances Karla might take photographs or videos of students for use on Key Mobile Music social media, advertising materials, lesson demonstrations, etc. Please know that photos and videos of your child will not be used without your prior permission. Piano Time Music is the in-studio option for Key Mobile Music.
Recitals are held twice each year in auditoriums around St. Albert and in seniors' residences.
Recitals are free of charge for students and for guests.
Participating in recitals is optional.
Lessons may be discontinued by the student at any time, with no penalties, provided that the office is notified in writing at least 15 days prior to your last lesson.
We reserve the right to withdraw a student from lessons based on poor attitude, disruptive behaviour, or difficult parents.
