Lesson and Payment Options

Cancellation AND WEATHER Policy


At Étude Academy, we are reserving an agreed-upon, recurring lesson slot for each student every week and providing a highly skilled instructor in a professional studio setting.  Because of this, we do NOT offer make-ups or re-scheduling opportunities for students who occupy a reserved, weekly time-slot, even with advance notice.  If a permanent, long term schedule change is needed, we will facilitate that as the schedule allows.  For our students to realize the full potential of their investment in lessons, attendance at lessons MUST be a priority and commitment.


In the event of inclement weather, students OR instructors may initiate a virtual lesson in lieu of an in-person lesson.


In the unlikely event  the instructor is unable to attend the scheduled lesson, the student will be granted a makeup lesson at a mutually agreeable time.

Here at Etude Academy, we take the health and wellbeing of our students and their families, as well as our staff very seriously.  In order to help stop the spread, Etude Academy has adopted the following rules and regulations during these unprecedented times:


  • masks MUST be worn in the studio at all times

  • only the student is allowed in the studio (no other family members unless prior permission)

  • students MUST sanitize hands before touching instrument

  • IF YOU OR ANYTONE IN YOUR IMMEDIATE FAMILY IS ILL PLEASE LET THE ADMINISTRATION KNOW AND A VIRTUAL LESSON WILL BE GIVEN IN LIEU OF IN-PERSON

  • if your instructor is ill, a virtual lesson will be given in lieu of an in-person lesson

​​​

Here at Étude Academy, students may begin lessons at  any time and are offered in two convenient scheduling options:  Monthly or Schedule-As-YouG0.  We accept the following forms of payment:  Cash, Check, PayPal and Venmo.  Credit Card payments are accepted through PayPal and Venmo.  Any fees related to Credit Card payments are the responsibility of the student.
