Melinda Moreaux Valente



The monthly fee covers all your lessons for the months from the beginning of August through the end of June.

I will not be teaching in July.

If you are unable to come to a lesson due to schedule conflict or illness, you have the option to change times with another student or come for a makeup lesson if a space is free.

You will not be guaranteed a makeup lesson. If I am unable to reschedule you, you will not be entitled to a refund.

Lessons cancelled with less than 48 hours notice for reasons other than illness will not be made up.

You are not entitled to make up lessons for the dates I’m not teaching, for example, during the winter and spring breaks.

Make-ups are forfeit upon termination of lessons.

     Monthly fees:

          Half hour lessons are $210 per month. Forty-five minutes lessons are $315 per month.

          Hour lessons are $420 per month.

The monthly fee is due on the first day of each month. If I receive your payment after the 1st of the month I will charge you a late fee of $30. Chronic late payers will be asked to find another teacher.
