Policy


$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.  Make up lessons are encouraged and readily available.

As I perform for a living, I credit for any times I cannot be there. Credit is $20 per lesson missed. The same applies to Holidays and scheduled weeks off.

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





If you'd like to Pay by PAYPAL 

go to PAYPAL and pay steve@trumpethead.com

PLEASE SELECT "PAY FRIENDS AND FAMILY" to avoid additional fees

Otherwise a monthly check at the beginning of each month payable to Steve Strand is great.
