Tuition Policies

Attendance

Our attendance policy is in place to diminish the heavy strain that multiple misses can put on an instructor’s already busy schedule. We also believe that consistent lessons helps build discipline, confidence, progress and momentum. We understand that unexpected events do occur, and we do our best to work with you as much as our schedules will allow.

An excused lesson may be rescheduled at the teacher’s discretion. To be eligible for an excused lesson, the student must contact the teacher at least 48 hours in advance. Students are guaranteed only one make-up per semester due to an excused absence. All excused lessons must be made up within the dates of the current quarter.

If a teacher needs to cancel a lesson, he or she will offer an alternative time to reschedule, prior to the end 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, chase quick pay, venmo, apple 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.
