Lesson & Policies
- No Annual Registration Fees
- Scheduling: Lessons are scheduled Weekly basis. (I do not offer fixed time slots for bi-weekly or irregular lessons.) Lessons are scheduled on a first-come, first-served payment system. That means your requested time slot will only be reserved once payment is received.
Tuition: All the lessons must be paid in advance. Tuition is charged per semester (monthly installment is also available. Installment has to made by the FIRST week of the month). Cash, checks or Zelle are acceptable forms of payment and may be made out to Reiko Bailey.
Please make checks payable to: Reiko Bailey
A late fee of $30 will be applied to any tuition not paid by the second lesson of the term. If tuition is not paid after this late fee is applied, lessons will be paused until tuition has been paid.
An early cancellation fee will be applied for students not completing the semester.
Lesson Times: Lesson times are reserved on a weekly basis for each student, so make-ups lessons will only be offered if it is a medical or family emergency. A missed lesson due to an emergency will not be refunded. If your missed lesson falls into this emergency category you will have the opportunity to schedule a make-up lesson during the same session it was missed. Travel bans due to weather will not be made up.
Missed Lessons: Make-up lessons are limited to two in any given semester, 24-hour cancellation policy required. They may not be carried over from one semester to another.
- Student Piano Recitals: We will have three student recitals (in-person & Zoom) every year! :) (Recital fee required per student.)
Sick? If student is sick, please do not take the lessons to avoid spreading to any illnesses. We can switch to Online lessons if you feel okay. Lessons cancelled by Ms. Reiko will be rescheduled.
Lessons will not be canceled even if local schools are canceled. Lessons will be held as normal regardless of weather unless you receive an email. Lessons may be held via Zoom in the case of inclement weather.
A face mask is optional. If you still feel sick, please let me know and we can wear a facemask together during the lessons.
Practice: Please encourage your child to make a piano practice time (before dinner or before bed etc.) at least 5 days every week.
You release Ms. Reiko from any and all liability and responsibility in any case of personal injury, property damage or loss, injury, accident, or misconduct.
