Studio Policy


School-Year Schedule     2017-18

  • The school year is divided into quarters: Fall, Winter I, Winter II, and Spring. 
    • Each session runs nine weeks and includes eight (8) individual lessons and two (2) group lessons.
  • I hold two studio recitals each year: December & June — TBA.
  • Additional summer lessons are offered during July and August at my home studio:
    60 Towpath Lane, Rochester, NY 14618

Lesson Scheduling    

  • Locations & Times — Monday & Tuesdays 
    • Seton Catholic Elementary School — during the school day or during the extended day program
    • Home music studio in Brighton: 60 Towpath Lane, Rochester, NY 146183:30pm-8pm.
  • Group Lessons are held once per month — I will notify you throughout the year when these are scheduled.
  • Rescheduling Lessons — With advance notice of a conflict, we may reschedule a lesson within the same week;
    this avoids having to schedule a make-up lesson.
  • Make-up Lessons — I allow one make-up lesson per session.
    These will be scheduled during the ninth week of each quarter.
  • Discontinuing Lessons — A month’s notice is required, should you wish to terminate your lessons.
    Students are expected to complete the quarter.
