- We appreciate your business and are excited about the opportunity to help you achieve your musical goals!

- Specific to their stated goals each student will learn music reading, technique, musical styles, transcribing and active listening for their instrument. Lesson plans will be specifically tailored to assure each student receives the instruction they need. A minimum practice time of 30 mins daily is recommended to achieve the maximum benefit from the lessons.

- Tuition is $90.00 per month for (4) lessons per month. Many months have a 5th week and if your lesson falls on a 5th week, there will be an additional charge of $22.50 for the additional lesson.

- Families with more than one student, or one student taking multiple instruments, will receive the "family" tuition rate of $80 per student for the (4) 1/2 hour lessons. There will be an additional charge of $20 for the 5 week months.

- Tuition should be paid in full the first week of the month. Please do not pro-rate the tuition total without discussing with your teacher all possible options for making up any missed lessons. Many schools do not offer any make-up lessons and ask for registration fees, application fees or 2 months of tuition upfront to maintain their teachers salaries. Keeping our payment plan on a month-to-month, 4-lesson plan is only possible if our teachers can consistently project this part of their income based on their scheduled lessons. If lessons were begun in the middle of the month, the initial payment should be only for the remaining lessons in that month. Please make tuition checks payable to your teacher, not Ronan School of Music.

- Lessons are once a week for 30 min. The agreed upon time slot will be the same each week.

- One make-up per month. We maintain a full load of students and unfortunately, there isn't time to have several make-ups. Make-up lessons must occur in the month they were missed.

- To receive a make-up please let us know about any cancellations no later than noon on the day of your lesson. This will allow us to try to use all available time to the fullest. You may call your teacher directly; call the school at 647-7957 and leave a voice message; or call, or text, Darren Ronan at 514-2222. We apologize for any inconvenience, but if you miss your lesson time without notification we cannot offer a makeup.

- Lessons missed due to a cancellation on the teachers part will be made up at a time convenient for the student and teacher. Unless the cancellation was due to a teacher missing a lesson, make-up lessons must occur in the month they were missed. We apologize for any inconvenience, but with a full load of students it becomes too difficult to manage missed lessons from past months.

- If you know you are going to miss more than one lesson in a month and do not want to pay for the whole month, you can take the whole month off and pay 50% of the tuition to fee ($42.50) to hold your spot. This does not allow for 2 lessons, this holds your spot and allows our teachers to maintain their income by utilizing your space to make up the difference.

- Students will be offered the opportunity to perform at local events. Most of these events will provide the student the experience of performing in a "professional" setting alonside their instructor. In addition to school-wide performing opportunities, we receive calls for performers for events on a regular basis and will pass these along to our students at the appropriate time.
