Fine Arts Credit from UCA
UCA students enrolled in piano lessons will receive 1.25 fine arts credits for each quarter successfully completed. Grades are based on practice and lesson attendance and participation in lessons and group activities.
In order to simplify the billing process, the lessons are charged at a flat rate each month. Charges are $100 per month for UCA students and $85 per month for elementary school students. A student receives 27 private lessons and 6 group lessons during the year. See the Payments page for complete details.
Past Due Accounts
Lesson charges are due on the first of the month. You account is past due after the fifth. If your account is past due, it will be charged a $15 late fee and your student’s lessons will be suspended until the account is paid. If your account is 30 days past due, your student will be dropped from the class.
Please contact me if you cannot meet your lesson appointment for any reason. There are no refunds for missed lessons. However, if you contact me at least 24 hours prior to missing your lesson, and if your absence is excused by UCA (or parents of elementary school students) I will offer a make-up lesson on my regularly scheduled make-up day for that month. If I have to cancel your lesson for any reason, you will also be offered a make-up lesson. You can email me [email protected] or call or text my cell phone at (509) 994-5244. If you text me, please make sure to identify yourself in the text message.
Make-up lessons are taught once a month. If you have an excused absence, or if I have to cancel your lesson because of illness or scheduling conflicts. You can make it up on one of my scheduled make-up days.
If you need to drop piano lessons during the term, please give two weeks notice so your spot can be filled from my waiting list. UCA students, please make arrangements and fill out the appropriate paperwork with the registrar’s office to avoid unexcused absences and hassles with your transcript.
