NEW POLICES & PRICES

Private Lesson Policies

Membership vs. Pay-As-You-Go

 

MEMBERSHIP: Your weekly private lesson slot is always reserved and guaranteed for you. Members are eligible for special discounts (see Additional Lessons). Monthly tuition is based on the number of lessons each month. Tuition is collected on AutoPay on the 28th of the previous month. For example, if you are paying for lessons for the month of May, your payment would be collected on April 28th. If an AutoPay card is declined, and tuition remains unpaid, the account will be charged a 20% late fee 2 days after the payment collection was attempted. If the balance is not paid in its entirety within 7 days from the card decline, the student may not attend their lessons until payment has been made in full. It is the responsibility of the client to inform Jeanette Airen Performing Arts Studio, LLC of any expired cards, changes in card numbers, lost or stolen cards, etc. You can adjust your AutoPay credit card from the studio portal at anytime. Jeanette Airen Performing Arts Studio, LLC will not relinquish the payment responsibility of the client for any reason, nor will they authorize extended late payment plans. If an account remains unpaid for 30 days, the appropriate collections agency will be contacted.

 

PAY-AS-YOU-GO: Lesson times are scheduled first come first served, week by week, are based on availability and weekly lessons are not guaranteed. Only 1 lesson can be scheduled at a time on the Pay-As-You-Go plan. Payment is collected when each lesson is scheduled. Priority for lesson times is given to Membership students.

Should something come up where you cannot financially fulfill your commitment to your/your child’s lessons, we appreciate and encourage notice and open, ongoing communication.

Substitutions

The studio reserves the right to provide a substitute teacher if the regularly scheduled teacher is ill or otherwise unable to teach classes. If your teacher must miss a lesson and the studio cannot arrange a substitute, you will be notified and your lesson will be rescheduled or, on rare occasions, your lesson will be refunded.

 

Cancellations

At least 24-hours' notice of cancellation is required to be eligible for a make-up lesson option. If 24-hours notice is provided the student will be issued a make-up lesson credit to be used as payment for their make-up lesson. Make-up lessons cannot be scheduled at the same time as the regularly scheduled lesson time. Private lesson students are allowed 6 make-up lessons per calendar year. The make-up lesson must be scheduled within 30-days of the missed lesson. If the make-up lesson credits are not used within 30-days from the missed lesson they will expire and the makeup credit will be forfeited. Make up lessons are offered as a courtesy. If the available time slots do not work for your schedule, additional times will not be offered and your make up credits will be forfeited if they have not been used within 30-days.

 

Discontinuing Lessons

Every student stops taking lessons at some point. Please make this decision thoughtfully with plenty of discussion between the teacher, parent, and student so that lessons can cease with a positive sense of closure. For this reason, the studio requests a one (1) month written notice. The student must finish the remainder of the current month paid in full or forfeit any unused lessons, as there are no refunds given. If appropriate, a parent/student-teacher conference may be scheduled before the last lesson to establish if this might be a temporary setback that can be resolved. If, after terminating your lessons, you decide to return to the studio, you will need to fill out a new Registration Form and pay the $15 registration fee.

 

Group Class Policies

MEMBERSHIP: All group class students must be enrolled as a member of the studio since payments will be collected on AutoPay monthly. Members are eligible for special discounts (see Additional Lessons/Family Discounts). Monthly tuition is based on the number of classes in each month. Tuition is collected on the 28th of the previous month. For example, if you are paying for classes for the month of May, your payment would be collected on April 28th. If an AutoPay card is declined, and tuition remains unpaid, the account will be charged a 20% late fee 2 days after the payment collection was attempted. If the balance is not paid in its entirety within 7 days from the card decline, the student may not attend their lessons until payment has been made in full. It is the responsibility of the client to inform Jeanette Airen Performing Arts Studio, LLC of any expired cards, changes in card numbers, lost or stolen cards, etc. You can adjust your AutoPay credit card from the studio portal at anytime.

Attendance for Group Classes

Your group class tuition is based on enrollment (not attendance). It reserves and guarantees a spot in the class for the student. Make-up class options will be offered if the student provides at least 24-hours notice of absence. The student may join another group class as a make-up for the missed class. An additional 60-minute group make-up class will be offered on the first Saturday of each month. The type of class will vary depending on which teacher is available to teach the class. Make-up classes cannot be used in a class that the student is currently registered in. Group class students are allowed 6 make-up lessons per calendar year. The make-up class or lesson must be scheduled within 30-days of the missed class. If the make-up lesson credits are not used within 30-days from the missed class they will expire and the makeup credit will be forfeited. 

 

Substitutions

The studio reserves the right to provide a substitute teacher if the regularly scheduled teacher is ill or otherwise unable to teach classes. If your teacher must miss a class and the studio cannot arrange a substitute, you will be notified and your class will be rescheduled or, on rare occasions, your class will be refunded.

 

Class Leveling

Jeanette Airen Performing Arts Studio, LLC teachers and staff will determine the appropriate class level for each student. Students may not switch class levels mid-session unless recommended and approved by the teacher.

 

Discontinued Classes

Jeanette Airen Performing Arts Studio, LLC reserves the right to discontinue a class for various reasons (i.e. does not have enough students enrolled). This will not happen mid-month, but rather at the beginning of a new month. Therefore, no paid tuition will be lost. Students may join another similar class if this occurs.

 

Discontinuing Classes

Every student stops taking classes at some point. Please make this decision thoughtfully with plenty of discussion between the teacher, parent, and student so the student can leave the class with a positive sense of closure. For this reason, the studio requests a one (1) month written notice. The student must finish the remainder of the current month paid in full or forfeit any unused tuition, as there are no refunds given. If appropriate, a parent/student-teacher conference may be scheduled before the last class to establish if this might be a temporary setback that can be resolved.

COVID-19 Safety Procedures & Additional Class Info

Click the buttons below to download our COVID-19 Waiver Form.

 

We are adjusting as the state and county health and safety regulations continue to change. We will no longer require masks to be worn in the studio, however, we highly recommend it. To ensure the safety of all students, their families and our staff, we will continue to practice social distancing at the studio and ask they you use the provided hand sanitizer when you enter the studio. We will no longer take anyone's temperature when they enter the studio, but please do not attend lessons or classes if the student or anyone in the household has experienced any cold or flu symptoms in the past 48-hours. If the student is feeling sick, please notify us. 

 

If a student has any cold or flu symptoms they should not attend their lesson or class. If a student has any cold or flu symptoms, they must either show proof of a negative COVID-19 test or wait at least 5-days  after symptoms have subsided before returning to the studio.

All students will need to have a COVID-19 waiver on file. If you have not filled one out yet, please be prepared to fill it out the next time you arrive at the studio. You can print the form and fill it out before you arrive by clicking the "COVID-19 WAIVER FORM" button above or you can fill out the form when you arrive at the studio.

We appreciate your understanding as we adjust to these new health and safety procedures.

 

All students attending in-person lessons must follow all studio guidelines and procedures. If these guidelines and procedures are not followed, the student will be asked to continue lessons virtually.

General Studio Policies

Care of Students

The studio is not responsible for providing before or after class care for students. Parents with students under the age of 5 are to remain in the studio during classes. Students are not to be left at the studio for excessive time before or after class.

 

Vacations/Taking Time Off

Students taking extended vacations or time off during regular hours of studio operation are required to pay the regular monthly membership tuition in full in order to continue reserving the student’s lesson time or group class spot. Remember you are allowed 6 make-up lessons per calendar year.

 

Temporary Leave

In the event that a student leaves the studio without paying for their designated time slot, the slot will not be reserved and there is no guarantee that any slot will be available upon the student’s return. In this case, the returning student will be placed on the waiting list. At least one month of written notice is required when taking a temporary leave.

 

Referrals

When you refer a new student you will receive a $20 credit on your next tuition invoice. Once the referred student has filled out their registration form, listing you as the person who referred them, and made their first payment, you will receive the credit on your next month’s tuition or on your next scheduled Pay-As-You-Go lesson.

 

Material Usage

All students are expected to have sheet music for each song they choose to work on or script for each scene or monologue they choose to work on during their private lessons. All materials will be provided for group classes unless the student is preparing a solo. If a student is working on a solo for a group class, they are responsible for providing their own sheet music or script. Jeanette Airen Performing Arts Studio, LLC is a digital reseller for Hal Leonard, so the first copy of sheet music for a song that the student will be working on can be purchased from the studio. If the student loses their sheet music or script and needs a new copy, a re-copying fee of $1 per song or scene script will be charged. Additional fees may apply to songs or scripts that are more than 6 pages long.

 

Students taking piano, guitar, and ukulele lessons will be required to purchase the course method book used by their instructor. Books can be purchased from Jeanette Airen Performing Arts Studio or any other bookseller as long as it is the same book suggested by the teacher. If the student will be working on a song that is not included in their book, they will need to purchase the sheet music for their lessons.

 

All recordings, karaoke tracks, sheet music, and scripts given to the student are to be used for educational purposes only. No duplication of these items is permitted.

 

Performances

All students are welcome to and encouraged to participate in our bi-annual showcase performances. Performing in front of a live audience of their peers and families validates a student's hard work and gives them a way to showcase what they have learned and accomplished. For more information about the showcase performance, please visit the "Shows" page. Other performance opportunities may be available throughout the year.
