$80 monthly tuition reserves a 1/2 hour time slot for 4 weeks per month and is due at the beginning of each month. It is up to each student to attend as often as possible as payment is due regardless of attendance.

As I perform for a living, I credit for any times I cannot be there. Credit is $20 per lesson missed.

Teaching materials (books, music, recorded examples, accompaniments, etc..) are provided for most situations.
