Membership vs. Pay-As-You-Go
MEMBERSHIP: Your weekly private lesson slot is always reserved and guaranteed for you. Members are eligible for special discounts (see Additional Lessons/Family Discounts). Monthly tuition is based on the number of lessons in each month. Tuition is due on or before the 1st of each month.
PAY-AS-YOU-GO: Lesson times are scheduled first come first served, week by week, are based on availability and weekly lessons are not guaranteed. Payment is collected when each lesson is scheduled. Priority for lesson times is given to Membership students.

Weekly 45-Minute Private Lessons: $55 each; Average Monthly Tuition $220

*45-Minute Lessons are not offered to Pay-As-You-Go students.
*Rates are subject to a small cost-of-living increase annually in January.
Payments are accepted by cash, check,
credit card or online via PayPal for your convenience. Discounted lessons must
be paid with cash or check only. Lessons will not be rendered unless payment is collected in advance. If payment is late more than once, a monthly automatic payment debit will be required to continue lessons.
There is a returned check fee of $25 if a check is returned to our bank for non-sufficient funds. If a payment is returned, the payee must bring all payments up to date, including the returned check fee, by the beginning of the student’s next lesson.
Should something come up where you cannot financially fulfill your commitment to your/your child’s lessons, we appreciate and encourage notice and open, ongoing communication.

Attendance for Private Lessons
Your membership tuition is based on enrollment (not attendance). It reserves and guarantees you a weekly time slot. Make up lessons will be offered if the student provides at least 24-hours notice of cancellation and the teacher has an available lesson time slot. If the teacher does not have an available lesson time slot, or the times available do not work with your schedule, you may join any group class as a make up lesson. Students are allowed 6 make up lessons per calendar year. Make up lessons must be scheduled within 30-days of the missed lesson, if the make up lesson credits are not used within 30-days from the missed lesson they will expire and the make up credit will be forfeited.
Attendance for Group Classes
Your group class tuition is based on enrollment (not attendance). It reserves and guarantees a spot in the class for the student. Make up lesson options will be offered if the student provides at least 24-hours notice of absence. The student may join another group class or have a 30-min. private lesson with Jeanette Airen as a make-up if she has an available time slot. Group class students are allowed 4 make up lessons per calendar year. The make up class or lesson must be scheduled within 30-days of the missed class, if the make up lesson credits are not used within 30-days from the missed lesson they will expire and the make up credit will be forfeited.
Attendance for Star Bright
Makeup classes or lessons will not be offered for the Star Bright Performance Crew. If a students misses a class, they are expected to get together with another group member to learn what they have missed. If the student prefers to meet with Jeanette for a private session, a 30-minute private make up lesson can be scheduled for the discounted rate of $35 if Jeanette has an available time slot. If Jeanette needs to miss a class a make up class will be scheduled at another time for anyone who is available to attend.
If your teacher must miss a lesson and the studio cannot arrange a substitute, you will be notified and your lesson will be rescheduled or, in rare occasions, your lesson will be refunded.
At least 24-hours notice of cancellation is required to be eligible for a make up lesson option.
Vacations/Taking Time Off: Students taking extended vacations or time off during regular hours of studio operation are required to pay the regular monthly membership tuition in full in order to continue reserving the student’s lesson time. Remember you are allowed 6 make up lessons per calendar year.
Temporary Leave: In the event that a student leaves
the studio without paying for their designated time slot, the slot will not be
reserved and there is no guarantee that any slot will be available upon the
student’s return. In this case, the returning student will be placed on the
waiting list. At least 1-months written notice is required when taking a temporary
When you refer a new student you will receive one free lesson. Once the referred student has filled out their registration form listing you as the person who referred them and made their first payment, you will receive a free lesson on your next month’s tuition, or your next scheduled Pay-As-You-Go lesson will be free.
All students are expected to have sheet
music for each song they choose to work on during their lessons. Jeanette Airen Performing Arts Studio
is a digital reseller for Hal Leonard, so the first copy of sheet music for a
song that the student will be working on can be purchased from the studio. If
the student looses their sheet music or script and needs a new copy, a re-copying
fee of $1 per song or script will be charged. Students taking piano lessons will be required to purchase the course method book used by their instructor. Books can be purchased from Jeanette Airen Performing Arts Studio or any other book seller as long as it is the same book suggested by the teacher.
All recordings, karaoke tracks, sheet music and scripts given to the student are to be used for educational purposes only. No duplication of these items is permitted.
All students are welcome to and encouraged to participate in our bi-annual showcase performances. Performing in front of a live audience of their peers and families validates a student's hard work and gives them a way to showcase what they have learned and accomplished. For more information about the showcase performance, please visit the "Performances" page. Other performance opportunities may be available throughout the year.
Jeanette Airen Performing Arts Studio staff is not allowed to give out student or teacher information, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, or home addresses.
Every student stops taking lessons at some point. Please make this decision thoughtfully with plenty of discussion between the teacher, parent and student so that lessons can cease with a positive sense of closure. For this reason, the studio requests a one (1) month written notice. The student must finish the remainder of the current month paid in full or forfeit any unused lessons, as there are no refunds given. If appropriate, a parent/student teacher conference may be scheduled before the last lesson to establish if this might be a temporary setback that can be resolved.
Dismissal & Termination
Should any of the following situations occur after parental notification has been made along with time provided to correct the situation, dismissal/lesson termination will result:
If, after terminating your lessons, you decide to return to the studio, you will need to fill out a new Registration Form.
Care of Students
The studio is not responsible for providing before or after class care for students. Parents with students under the age of 5 are to remain in the studio during classes. Students are not to be left at the studio for excessive time before or after class.
