For example, October lesson payments are due by September 28th; November lesson payments are due October 28th, etc. The number of lessons billed is based solely on the number of lessons for your given day in the next month. (e.g., if your lesson day is Monday and there are four Mondays in a month, you will be billed for four lessons; if there are five Mondays in the month, you will be billed for five.) Lessons are pro-rated for new students according to their start date.

SUMMER (JUNE, JULY, & AUGUST) LESSONS

Markle Music Studio’s lesson schedule continues as normal all year round. There will be no change to the ongoing schedule during the lesson. If you have summer conflicts (i.e. family vacation, summer camps, etc.), please provide the required one (1) week notice before each lesson that will be missed.

If for some reason you have to withdraw for all or part of the summer, a $50 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve your day/time in the fall. This is due by June 1st. You are reserving an exact day and time. If come the fall you cannot keep this day/time, it is not guaranteed that there will be an alternative spot for the fall. The $50 deposit will be credited towards September’s tuition. You do not need to pay this deposit if you are continuing lessons as normal through June, July, and August.

Consistency and commitment are the keys to developing and mastering any pursuit, including music. Therefore, students are encouraged to attend every lesson in order to advance their skills. If your student must miss a lesson, we ask that you please contact the studio a minimum of 24 hours before the scheduled lesson time to cancel or to reschedule.
