Letter to parents and students

 2022 Studio Policies & Pricing Changes
 Dear Parents and Students,
First I want to thank you all for supporting us and trusting us to teach you and your children throughout COVID, and some of you from even years before that.  We’ve worked hard to maintain our level of service and offer you the joy of music in your home and hope you continue to trust us for years to come!  As with any company that relies on software to run, we sometimes come across software that looks better and sometimes it’s so good we decide to take the plunge, endure the pain of switching and adapt to the new softwares idiosyncrasies.  We tried that with the current software, Teacherzone, and it’s been a disappointment in many ways, forcing us to change once again.  We are also taking this opportunity to update our policies, some of which have to be tweaked to line up with the new software’s capabilities (which are WAY better in every way).  No software is perfect, but we feel this new software, Opus1 is the answer to our biggest problems. 
One of the biggest areas the developers focused was on allowing students to schedule and reschedule lessons on their own rather than having to call the office in order to see what’s available, especially for make up lessons.  We are also going to allow teachers to schedule make up lessons to help fill their empty spots which help some of you with MANY make up lessons owed to get those taken care of much quicker.  Between students being proactive as well as their teachers, the front desk can focus more on quality and just making sure things are running smoothly rather than spending all day scheduling and rescheduling lessons.  I think you will love the new scheduling capabilities of the software!  
One of the other major changes you will notice is that we are switching to doing a flat rate rather than charging every four weeks.  We actually poled a number of parents and it was unanimous that everyone preferred a flat rate, so the fact that the software doesn’t do a similar billing style worked out OK.   Everyone will be billed on the 1st of the month for however much your monthly rate is, and this amount won’t change even if you have five lessons.  The months with five lessons make up for the months with 3 (which are very few) so you might even get an extra lesson for free if you attend all your lessons!  All prior payments will be taken into consideration the first month so don’t worry…you’re not forfeiting any lessons or money previously paid.  All banked lessons and paid lessons will be transferred to the new software.  
In changing to the flat rate, we also much alter some of our pricing, and to simplify this change an eliminate errors, we are going to put everyone on the same pricing plan.  If you have a percentage discount, you still get that, but it will be based on the new pricing. The new pricing will be as follows:


30 minute weekly lesson $145/mo
45 minute weekly lesson $200/mo
60 minute weekly lesson $250/mo


In-home is $40 more per month 
Group piano $100/mo
Music Funtime $120/mo
Kidzrock $130


Below you will find the new policies.
