$30 surcharge / lesson
I can travel to you for lessons, but you must secure a space and keyboard. The space must be accessible by public transportation within Chicago. This $30 surcharge is in addition to the standard studio rates.
You may pay for lessons individually or in bulk.
Pay at the start of the lesson.
Cash, check, and Chase QuickPay are all acceptable.
Late or need to cancel?
Sometimes life happens. I get it. Here's what I think is fair.
When you have to cancel a lesson - I won't charge if you give me 24-hour notice, but with less than that, it's at my discretion as to whether you are charged in full, in part, or not at all.
When you don't show for a lesson - unless it's a medical or family emergency, you forfeit that lesson and you still pay.
When you're late to a lesson - we'll start the lesson when you arrive and finish up at the scheduled time. I expect the full lesson fee. If I'm free after our scheduled time we can keep working and get in your full time.
When I have to cancel a lesson - you won't be charged. If I give less than 24-hour notice, you'll receive your next lesson at 50% off.
When I'm late to a lesson - you'll receive $1 off for every minute I'm late.
