POLICIES/TUITION
TUITION
Tuition includes a monthly rate plus the annual registration fee ($50) for new & returning
students.
Tuition reserves student's lesson time and is
non-refundable. Occasionally, extra lessons
serve to make
up for an occasional student's absence or holiday. All payments must be made by cash or
check
at the beginning of the first lesson of each month.
For tuition rates, please
contact the studio.

LATE/MISSED PAYMENTS
Tuition is non-refundable and student's lessons will be interrupted if accounts fall behind in
payment.

If you have any questions regarding these policies, please e-mail me at  
porchkhidzem@yahoo.com  
do not ask before the lesson, as this is valuable time to concentrate on the student
and the teaching process.
..........................................................................................................................................
ATTENDANCE
Good attendance is imperative to a musician's progress, as we operate on a time schedule.
Please arrive on time, which means arriving a few minutes before the scheduled lesson. To
rearrange the schedule and
accommodate changes are difficult and not guaranteed. Clean hands and trimmed fingernails
are the etiquette of a pianist.

We only allow
2 make-ups per semester - in case of illness or family emergency only.
Students must notify the studio ahead of time. Please keep in mind that even when schools are
on a break,
the studio is still open and running on current attendace/policies.
Please follow the studio's policies - there are
no exceptions.

..............................................................................................................................................
PERFORMANCE OPPORTUNITIES
Our students take advantage of playing their programs in front of an audience to showcase
their skills and talents.
Many of the students, especially the youngsters, enjoy playing their own compositions as well.
Our annual recital is held at
Faust Harrison Pianos  in Midtown Manhattan. Other concerts
may be scheduled during the Academic year.
