- How often do I need to pay?
Tuition for lessons in the Fall and Winter/Spring Sessions is paid for on a monthly basis. Lessons in the Summer Session are flexible and based on demand.
- When is tuition due?
Payments must be received by the first lesson of the month, or by the 15th of the month, whichever comes first.
- How may I pay for tuition?
You may pay by cash, check (payable to JULIE BARWICK), credit card, or PayPal. Lessons can be paid online or in person. If mailing a check, please mail to the address found on the studio policies from your registration packet.
- When and how do I receive the invoices?
Invoices are sent via email approximately one week before the first lesson of the month.
- What is your cancellation policy?
Lessons must be cancelled at least 24 hours in advance in order to qualify for a make-up lesson. Exceptions will only be made for illness if the teacher is notified 4 hours before the scheduled lesson time.
- What is your make-up lesson policy?
I allow two absences per school year (September 1–May 31), which can be made-up at no charge if 24 hours prior notice is given. Families are expected to pay for additional lessons that are missed due to school concerts, sporting events, travel plans, other activities, etc. Exceptions may be made for illness at the teacher’s discretion.
- If I already paid for a lesson, but cancelled with advance notice, can I get a credit for next month?
Tuition payments are non-refundable and no credits may be given. By accepting a place in my studio, you are reserving a time slot in my schedule and committing to pay for the number of lessons being taught in that month. I do allow two absences per school year (September 1–May 31), which can be made-up at no charge if 24 hours prior notice is given.
- What about holidays?
Please refer to the current year calendar for the days that I do not teach. I typically follow the San Francisco public school calendar. Those lessons will not be included in tuition, but may be made up if desired by the student (depending on my availability).
- What if the teacher cancels the lesson?
Lessons cancelled by the teacher will be made up at a later time.
