Studio Policies

All students are expected to practice and listen 6-7 days per week with the support of an at-home practice partner.

Studio families are encouraged to swap lessons where mutually beneficial.

All students are scheduled for weekly group lessons, private lessons, and studio recitals as posted on the calendar.

Students are encouraged to attend an annual summer music program that best suits them.
If a Miss Emily Violin Studio teacher or assistant is absent for any reason, tuition will be refunded.
For private use only, videotaping private lessons is encouraged.
Phone conversations are not appropriate anywhere in the studio.
Lesson Times are contracted through Labor Day of the following year.
All incoming studio families sign liability, photo and video release forms.

Make-up lessons or tuition refunds are not available for any student absence. Online lessons are available.

Occasionally, for weather or travel or health purposes, regular private lessons will be held online. 

All studio families are encouraged to retain membership to the Suzuki Association of the Americas.
Tuition for the upcoming month is due the first week of that month. Overdue tuition may result in discontinuation of lessons.
Miss Emily Violin Studio asks that parents do not discuss their children with Miss Emily in front of any student, including their own child.
To support increasing opportunities for these young artists, there is an annual Special Events Fee due in December for all incoming studio families.
Former students of Miss Emily Violin Studio who wish to re-join the studio are encouraged to re-apply following a wait period of 6 months from their last enrollment date.

To discontinue lessons, studio families or Miss Emily Violin Studio may submit a formal electronic notice of the final date of those lessons. No tuition will be charged beyond that date.

The practice partner, usually a parent, silently takes notes during private lessons participating in the learning process. As a student matures, the role of the partner shifts while remaining fully supportive in new ways.

Students are never to be dropped off without ensuring Miss Emily has seen them.

Families with severe allergies please be advised that Miss Emily Violin Studio is also home to dogs.

Miss Emily Violin Studio is not responsible for child care.
