Payment and Scheduling
Tuition fees are paid in advance for a set of four (4) lessons. Payment is due at the beginning of the first lesson, when the remaining lessons in the set must be booked. Those 4 lessons can take place any time within 2 calendar months, though will usually be at the same time and same day of the week.
Remember, while most students choose weekly lessons, you are not obliged to book a lesson for every week – the 4 lessons you pay for can be spread across the 2 month period should you so wish. Use this flexibility to your advantage – try to anticipate work or vacation travel, school holidays etc. I only ask that you book lessons definitively when you pay for them.
Once lessons are booked and paid for, no refunds or credit will be given for lessons that students cancel or miss.
If you need help deciding how often to schedule your lessons, see my blog post, “How often should I take guitar lessons?“.
Guitar Tech Services for my Students
It is very important to keep your instruments in top shape and optimum playability if you are to get the most enjoyment out of your playing, and your lessons. As an experienced guitar technician I am the perfect choice to help with your string changes, set up, adjustments, and repairs of your guitars. To that end I offer my paid students this service at a reduced rate of 40€ per hour, or in lieu of lesson time.
A simple string change might typically take only 15 minutes. A full clean, string change, and setup could take an hour or an hour and a half.
Note that standard prices for these services are typically €60 per hour. This represents a substantial saving to my students while keeping their instruments in their best playing condition.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me here, I always try to reply within 24 hours.
