Policies

Tuition

Tuition is paid on a monthly basis with the good faith that the student will attend each lesson for the month. Tuition is due at the first lesson of each month as follows:

30 minute lessons: $30 per lesson/$120 per month

45 minute lessons: $40 per lesson/$160 per month (recommended)

60 minute lessons: $60 per lesson/$240 per month

Cash, check, and Venmo are accepted.

Travel Fees

We are based in La Grange Park, and serve areas within a 5 mile radius free of travel fees.

In the event that we travel between 5 and 10 miles to your location, a $25 fee will be added each month.

In the event that we travel between 10 and 15 miles to your location, a $30 fee will be added per month.

We do not travel more than 15 miles for lessons.

We ask for travel fees to compensate for time, gas, and tolls.

Absences

We respect our students’ time at Anderson Music Studio, and we request that same respect in return. As such, we require a minimum of 24 hours notice in the event that a student will not be able to attend their lesson. If a lesson is canceled with less than 24 hours notice, including cases of illness, you will be charged 50% of the tuition for that lesson.

The house is pretty full here, and a make up lesson will not be offered in the event of sudden unavailability. Read more about make up policies here.

If the teacher must miss a lesson, it will either be rescheduled to a time that is mutually convenient, made up by adding additional time to future lessons, or you will be refunded 75% of the tuition for that lesson in the form of a tuition credit the following month.

Non-Discrimination Notice

We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, or ethnicity in admission to the studio, nor do we discriminate in the administration of our policies herein.

Communication is Imperative

We value your goals, and encourage a strong relationship between the student, parent, and teacher. If there are questions, concerns, or conflicts at any point, please do not hesitate to bring them to our attention.

Additionally, prompt responses are appreciated. We’ll respond to your messages within 24 hours, please return that courtesy.
