Monteiro Studio Lesson Policy
For new students, a non-refundable and one-time registration fee of $65.00 per family is due upon enrollment. This fee will only be issued again if a family drops and re-enrolls.
Tuition covers 12 months according to the school calendar. There are 46 lessons per year and 6 weeks off: Thanksgiving (1) , winter break (2), spring break (1), and summer break - Which consists of the last week of June and the 1st week of July (2). Our breaks follow the San Diego and Carlsbad Union School District Schedule. This is not a yearly contract, and you may discontinue lessons at any time. Tuition is due on the first of each month.
A 10% sibling discount is available (minimum two 30-minute lessons). Venmo, PayPal, ApplePay, and checks all accepted and can be sent through the mail.
Make-up lessons are dependent on the availability of the teacher, and no refunds or “credits” will be issued for missed lessons—tuition reserves the student’s weekly lesson day and time. If the teacher cancels, you will receive a refund, a make up lesson by the teacher that works with both schedules or a qualified substitute may be sent in the regular teacher’s place. Cancellations must be made at least 24 hours in advance in order to receive a make up lesson. There are no make up lessons for missed Group Classes or the Virtual Practice unless the teacher cancels.
