Welcome to Meridian Music School, the most contemporary and diversified non-collegiate music education facility. Instruction is available on most instruments, including voice. In order to provide you with the highest standard of instruction, we ask that you meet the terms of the following private studio policy:
The faculty and staff of Meridian Music School are not responsible for the supervision of students outside the lesson time. We kindly request that students wait inside the building before and after lessons until their parents arrive.
A one-time registration fee will be assessed for all new students. This fee is $30.00 per student or a maximum of $55.00 per family. Lesson fees are $35-$45.00 per half hour, depending on instructor. Our billing cycle occurs monthly. Invoices are sent on the 25th of each month for the following month’s tuition. Payment of the full monthly tuition is due on the 1st of each month. Payments may be made via cash, check, credit card, or online through our website. Checks are payable to Meridian Music School. A $20.00 late fee will be assessed for any unpaid tuition when the next billing cycle occurs.
ATTENDANCE and PUNCTUALITY
Lessons cancelled with less than a 24 hour notice will be subject to forfeiture. Students are permitted two absences in a six month period for which a makeup lesson will be offered, and five vacation days per year for which they need not pay or make up. As a courtesy to your teacher, please inform your teacher of your vacation plans at least one week in advance. Makeup lessons will not be rescheduled if cancelled by the student. Teachers may not be available for a student who arrives more than ten minutes late for a lesson. Please communicate directly with your teacher directly regarding absences.
*COVID-related absences: If you have tested positive for COVID, please follow CDC guidelines regarding quarantine and only return to lessons when you have completed quarantine and/or tested negative. Lessons missed due to COVID will be credited to your account.
Financial Credits will only be offered if the teacher cancels a lesson for any reason. Students and teachers are encouraged to makeup lessons rather than use credits.
Please check with your teacher about whether or not they will teach during the holidays below. Your teacher may be offering lessons during those days or providing make-up lessons.
