Policies and Procedures
Covid-19 Safety Precautions
My safety precautions include using a medical grade air-purifier, open windows on warm days, wearing a mask during lessons, cleaning piano keys with alcohol, allowing 15 min between each student, and there is always hand sanitizer available for the students.
Parent Lesson Attendance
Parents are welcome to attend lessons or may drop the student off. Parents may observe the lessons in the house, wait in the car in my driveway, or leave and return promptly at the end of the lesson.
Online lessons are conducted using Zoom. Each student will have an individual meeting link which will be re-used each week. We use online lessons interchangeably with regular lessons, so that students do not miss lessons due to a minor illness or if other transportation issues arise.
Attendance and Flex Lessons
The monthly payment plan and schedule includes two "Flex Lessons" which replace the traditional make-up lessons. This removes the hassle of re-scheduling lessons. The Flex Lessons are built into the year and become FREE BONUS LESSONS when students attend all 41 lessons; however if more than 2 lessons are missed, those lessons are forfeited. I will offer to send a video lesson to be recorded during your missed lesson time. Notification of inability to attend lesson does not excuse the full monthly payment for the reserved lesson slot. Please understand this policy exists because your spot is a time reserved with me each week which I cannot make-up for if you miss the lesson.
