Fees, Policies, Calendar, and Contact Information
Lessons are $90.00 per hour, $67.50 for 45 minutes, $45.00 per half hour. Please see the calendar below for more information. Consulting is $100.00 per hour.
Lessons run September 6th to the end of June 24th. Summer lessons are a more casual affair. I work around our mutual holiday schedules.
I accept post-dated checks or etransfer for each month of the term or lesson payment in full for the year via etransfer. This reserves an exclusive weekly lesson time for you. If lessons conclude before the end of the calendar year, the un-used balance is immediately refunded. Summer lessons are billed as we go. You may start mid-term if space permits.
Classes start: Tuesday September. 6. 2022

Summer lessons are booked as we go.

The following exception applies: If you are an online student, I can create an exclusive video lesson for you during your regular lesson time. Alternatively, we can work together on an asynchronous lesson if I know ahead of time. If you are an in-studio student, I can substitute an online lesson during your regular lesson time.
This policy keeps lesson fees reasonable and brings dignity to my work.
1. Associated fees
Students are responsible for exam registration and payment.
Fees for music festivals and recitals are billed separately.
Music books and other learning materials are the responsibility of the student.
2.Contacting the teacher
Email is best prior to the lesson day; you will need to text, or phone the day of your lesson. Please no calls on Sunday. I do not accept calls, emails, etc., from children.
3. Addressing the teacher
I prefer children to call me Mr. Story. Everyone else: David or Dave.
