Tuition Policies

Attendance

Students are expected to attend all lessons, recitals and classes for which they are registered. Notification of a lesson cancellation by the student is a courtesy to the teacher but does not excuse payment for contracted lessons. An excused lesson may be rescheduled at the teacher’s discretion. If a lesson falls on a holiday, the teacher will provide a makeup date for the student. To be eligible for an excused lesson, the student must contact the teacher at least 24 hours in advance. Unexcused absences will not be made up. If the teacher needs to reschedule for any reason, the lesson will be made up. All excused lessons must be made up within the dates of the current quarter.

Tuition Payment

Tuition is due on the first day of classes. Baker students meeting at Baker can pay either by cash, quick pay or check made out to Baker Demonstration School.

All other students meeting at my home studio can pay cash, quick pay or check made out to Martin Metzger.

Note: Only Baker students currently enrolled at Baker can meet for lessons at Baker. All other students will meet at my home studio.

Note: Baker students wishing to take lessons during the breaks and summer session will meet at my home studio.
