2018-2019  Lesson Schedule: 

 I teach piano lessons Monday through Friday.  Fall semester is Thursday, August 16 through Wednesday, December 19 and includes 17 lessons.  (Monday students will have 16 lessons due to Labor Day holiday, and your Sept. tuition will be pro-rated accordingly.)  Spring semester is Monday January 7 through Friday May 17 and includes 18 lessons.  
The dates of no piano lessons are:
September 3 (Labor Day)
 November 20-24 (Thanksgiving week)
 Thursday December 20-Friday January 4
 Monday April 1-Friday April 5
 May 18-31 

Summer lessons (June through mid-August) will be arranged on an individual, flexible basis.  Please check the studio calendar for important dates such as the December performances and the May recital.  Adult students will have their own informal get-together/performance opportunities each semester.

Tuition and Fees 2018-2019
Fall and Spring semester tuition is paid in August and January, or divided into monthly payments for your convenience.  Fall Semester tuition (30 minute lessons) includes the yearly technology/recital assessment ($30):  $412.50.  Spring Semester tuition (30 minute lessons): $425.00. Students who begin lessons during a semester will have their tuition pro-rated based on how many lessons remain in the semester.  
Fees may be paid by cash, check, or PayPal.
For families who prefer to pay monthly by cash, check, or PayPal, the tuition is divided evenly at $85 per month August-May, paid no later than at the first lesson of each month.   December tuition is is $42.50, and the non-refundable technology/recital assessment of $30 is added to the September invoice.
If you are absent from your first lesson of the month (family illness, vacation, etc), tuition is still due that day and may be paid directly by PayPal.  


Missed Lessons

You may request a FaceTime or phone lesson during your scheduled time if you are not able to attend in person due to weather, vacation, car problems, illness, or other issues.  If you are too ill to have a lesson, please ask me to record a YouTube lesson to watch when you get well, or you may record your music by phone before your scheduled lesson, and I will listen and send you audio comments.  
Adult early-daytime students only: in order to make alternate arrangements, please contact me at least 24 hours in advance if you need to miss a lesson.   

Discontinuation of Lessons:  Lessons normally are scheduled from mid-August through the end of May.  What if you discontinue lessons part-way through the year?  Please notify me at least two weeks before your last lesson---two weeks' paid notice is required.  All students will pay a two-weeks lesson deposit for their last two lessons, for whenever that would occur. (After their four lesson trail period, new students pay a deposit which will pay for their last two lessons in the future--$50 for 30-minute lessons, $75 for 45-minute lessons.)

Questions?  If you have questions or concerns please call me (317-753-1858) or email me (saltanovitz@comcast.net) with your questions, and I will respond as soon as I can.
