  • Group Class Tuition Billing: ALL students enrolled in group classes are charged the monthly membership fee during each semester, and this is NOT based on the number of classes in the month. Some months have 5 classes and other months have 3 classes, therefore we charge a monthly membership fee, not a weekly class fee. All classes even out over the semester.

  • Enrollment: Each new student is required to enroll. New students must enroll before the first lesson. Returning students must re-enroll before the first lesson of the following semester, annually.
  • Lessons at the school:  Students are expected to show up (5) minutes before their assigned lesson time prepared with appropriate books, writing utensils, and any other items assigned by the teacher. Note: Please wash your hands before each lesson.
  • Lessons at home: Lesson time starts (1) min after your teacher arrives. Students should be ready to play at their scheduled time. Due to traffic, we ask you to please allow a 10-15 minute cushion when scheduling other activities around music lessons. The teacher, due to traffic, may arrive late at times but will still provide full lesson time to the student. Note: Please wash your hands before each lesson.
  • We hold classes on most MONDAY holidays during the year. We will send an email out either way to let you know whether we are having class or not.
  • Late Arrivals: SCHOOL / HOME: The teacher will wait (15) minutes MAX while trying to contact you via phone & text message. If there is no contact made, then the teacher will leave after the (15) minutes, and the lesson will be considered a “No Show” to which there is no make-up lesson AND you will be charged for the lesson. If a student is late to the lesson, the teacher is only required to provide the lesson time that is left to that student. Please take into consideration that PCSM faculty teaches both at our school AND at students’ homes.  Please pick up your child/children from our school on time as the teacher may need to leave immediately to get to their next appointment.
  • Summer Lessons: 6 Lessons are required to continue lessons with your current teacher. SIX (6) Summer Lessons are mandatory.
  • Lesson Cancellation Policy:  As referenced in the tuition policy, there are no refunds or credits given for lessons missed. Students are eligible for TWO (2) make-up classes a semester. Make-up lessons may be scheduled at any time during the semester for cancellations made at least (24) hours in advance via email, text, or phone call. Make-ups are at the discretion of the teacher’s schedule. Cancellations made less than (24) hours in advance will not be eligible for make-up. If the teacher cancels a lesson, he/she will promptly schedule a make-up lesson. Skype lessons are available as a form of make-up.
  • Additional Lesson Incentive: Spread the word about our music lessons to family, friends, and neighbors. Be sure to let them know to mention you as they begin the enrollment process so that we know that you referred them to our school. Email us at noting which family/families you’ve referred to us, and if one of them formally enrolls, you’ll receive a complimentary class.
