Lesson payment may be made by cash or check. Payment is accepted monthly or on a lesson by lesson basis. Monthly payments must be made in advance.



Students who must cancel lessons are asked to kindly give at least twenty-four (24) hour notice prior to the lesson time. The best time to reach me is in the morning, in the afternoon to 1:30, and between 9:30 and 11:00 p.m. in the evening. Please leave a message if there is no answer. If you become aware of a future lesson that must be cancelled, please let me know as soon as you can. Since the majority of my teaching is done on the road, often in areas that are far from my home, canceled lessons are an inconvenience and often result in wasted time that cannot be recovered. Accordingly, it is difficult to maintain a workable schedule when lessons are canceled. Please avoid cancellation unless it is absolutely necessary.


Make Up Lessons

Students are encouraged to maintain the weekly scheduled lesson to assure regular progress. Presently, I do not require students to make up missed lessons. However, if you want to make up the lesson, a time convenient to both teacher and student may be arranged. This could include doubling the length of the following lesson, if scheduling permits.
