STUDIO POLICY

POLICY FOR MUSIC LESSONS


Payments are to be made monthly, no later than the first week of lessons per month. A late of $10 will be implemented and added to the original fee if payments are made later than the tenth of each month.

If you are someone who has made personal payment plans with me, you will be excluded from the $10 late fee.


If payments are missed for two or more months, your lesson times will be given to someone else, and you will need to contact me for a new time.


Cancellations will still require full payment at the beginning of the month. A makeup lesson may be scheduled at my discretion. If common cancellations occur, no makeup lessons will be offered.

If I, (Sarah Hinman) miss a lesson due to sickness, medical reasons, or an emergency, I will allow the missed lesson day count as credited payment for the following month, or for a makeup lesson to be scheduled.


If a lesson is missed because of forgetfulness, noncommunication, or negligence, a makeup lesson will not be offered, and the time will not count towards the following month.


If you plan on taking a family vacation or missing a lesson, please inform me at least 7 days before, or at the earliest opportunity so I can plan my schedule accordingly.

A makeup lesson may be scheduled at my discretion, and payment is still expected for the full month.


If a student’s instrument breaks while in lessons, it will be the duty of their parent or guardian to repair it, and I will not be held accountable for strings broken, music lost, broken instruments, or any other supplies with them.


If music is lost, the student or parent/guardian will be expected to replace it with a new copy.


If you, as a student, or parent/guardian of student, struggle financially, payment plans can be put in place at my discretion.

EVENT MUSIC POLICY

A non-refundable deposit of $50 is required to secure the date and time for my services. The payment for my services is expected at the end of the event. If you choose to cancel the time scheduled and my services, the deposit of $50 will not be returned.


I ask that the administrator or event planner hiring me, set a time to meet in person, or speak together on phone call to discuss music options.


If you want to employ me as the musician for an event or service, please do so at least a month in advance so I have the appropriate amount of time to prepare.

If you reach out to me, asking for my services for an event in less than a month, options can be negotiated, and payment is still expected in full.


I reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. Please understand I will not be able to include everyone in my schedule. If timing and scheduling are a conflict, I will do my best to recommend others who may be able to take your business if I am unable to do so.


If an instrument of mine is damaged due to your negligence or persons in your event, I will ask for either full or partial compensation to the costs of repair due to the extent of the damage.
