Lessons During Summer

  1. The client or student must pay for seven lessons during summer.
  2. The lessons can remain at a set time each week or scheduled more flexibly as needed as long as the minimum of seven lessons during summer are met.
  3. These seven lessons are not makeup lessons forwarded from the previous school year.


  1. Tuition covers four lessons per month. When there are five lesson days in a calendar month, an additional lesson charge will be added to the tuition payment.
  2. Tuition is due by the 25th of each month for the upcoming month.
  3. All lessons must be pre-paid.

Missed Lessons

Because tuition payment is based on an allotted weekly time slot, tuition covers both lessons attended as well as missed lessons.

No credit will be given for missed lessons.

  1. In order to be eligible for a makeup lesson due to a cancellation, the instructor must receive at least 24-hour notification in advance. Makeup lessons will be arranged at a later date.  Makeup lessons can also be forwarded to the summer.
  2. Only one makeup lesson will be scheduled for one missed lesson. Missed makeup lessons cannot be rescheduled. Tuition is non-refundable.

Should the instructor be unavailable for a lesson or cancel a lesson, a makeup lesson will be arranged for a later date or forwarded to the summer. The client or student is still required to pay for the cancellation.

The makeup lessons that are forwarded to the summer do not take the place of the required seven lessons.

  1. Music Starz Studios can vacate the current student’s lesson day and time during summer for an incoming new student.
  2. The current student will return as a new student on a different schedule for the ensuing school year with newly implemented fees ($2.00 increase per lesson).


  1. Rates are increased periodically (i.e. every two to three years).
  2. Rates will increase yearly for students who do not fulfill the mandatory seven lessons during summer.
  3. Notification on increases will be provided 6 months in advance.
