Dear Parents and Students:
Once again this year we have a fine group of private teachers available to teach band, orchestra & chorus students (students must be enrolled in band, orchestra or chorus to take part in the private lesson program). Private lessons are once a week and will start in September.
The policy for payment for private lessons is as follows:
1. The private teacher will present a written bill. Payment is made directly to the teacher.
2. Payment is to be made by semester and due on or before the second lesson. See registration information for details on pricing.
NOTE: Credit will be given in the following bill for lessons missed because of vacations, teacher workshops, or if the teacher cannot be here.
3. No refund can be made for lessons missed on account of illness (except in the case of long term illness) or “no school” days caused by storms. Teachers are committed to a specified number of teaching days in Weston and expect to receive a certain income for their time. Notice about prearranged absences must be given to the private teacher one week in advance.
4. In the case of school field trips for which the schedule is established at least one week in advance, and the private teacher is then notified by the student or the parent, the lesson will either be canceled with no charge or made up at a later date.
If there are any questions concerning this policy, please contact me at (781) 786-5945 or by email
