payment and late fees

Tuition payment is due by the first lesson of each month or at the first group class.  Coaching sessions must be paid for at the time of service. A $10 late fee will be added to any tuition not paid by the first meeting of the month.  Payment may be made by cash or check, payable to James Taylor Studios, LLC.  Note that tuition rates are for payments made by cash or check.   


In the event of cancellation by the instructor, the lesson will be made up or credited to the next month.  In the event of cancellation by the student with 24-hours’ (or more) notice, a make-up lesson will be scheduled.  In the event of cancellation by the student with less than 24-hours’ notice, no make-up lesson will be scheduled, nor will any tuition be credited to the next month.  In the case of a short notice conflict, you have the option to trade lesson times with another student in the studio. This option will save you from losing a lesson. A contact sheet and student schedule will be posted in studio for viewing at any time. No refunds are given for any reason.
