Studio Policies

  1. Lessons are held at the student's home or at my home studio. For at home lessons, ideally, the piano should be in a quiet spot of the house, free from distractions. 
  2. Weekly lessons are scheduled in 30, 45 minute or 60 minute time slots. Students should be ready to begin their lesson upon my arrival. 
  3. Lesson payment is expected at the beginning of each month. For rates, email contactdbpmusic@gmail.com or call 443-794-8571.
  4. 24 hour cancellation notice is required or the lesson is forfeited. This policy is strictly enforced. Make up lessons will be scheduled if possible. If I cancel the lesson, a make up will be scheduled and if that's not possible, a credit will be carried over to the following month. 
  5. One month notice is required if the student wishes to discontinue lessons. 
  6. Participation in student recitals is not required but it is strongly encouraged.
  7. Students must have a suitable instrument, either a piano or keyboard, at home for daily practice.
  8. I will provide teaching materals, such as books, flashcards etc, with reimbursement at cost. 
  9. Regarding holidays and summer break, I teach year round and expect students to continue lessons over the summer break. Obviously, it is also expected that students will take time off for family vacations, summer camps etc., but I ask that there is an effort made for some consistency in lessons over the summer months.

Thank you for taking the time to read over the studio policies!
