Studio Policies
All scheduling is handled by our scheduling desk. Please do not contact your teacher directly to cancel or reschedule lessons. To cancel or reschedule lessons, please email us at info@neighborhoodmusicstanley.com.

  • Recurring tuition is billed monthly on the 27th of each month.


  • If you ever need to cancel recurring lessons, let us know by the 25th of the month. Once your card is charged, we cannot issue a refund. Any prepaid lessons remaining are subject to our normal makeup policy.
  • If you ever need to cancel a single lesson, please give us 24 hours notice. With 24 hours notice, we can issue a makeup lesson onto your account. Without 24 hours notice, the lesson is forfeit, as we still have to pay our teacher for that lesson


  • Makeups are good for 60 days from the missed lesson date and they can be used by anyone in the household for any instrument with any teacher.
  • It is your responsibility to contact the scheduling desk to schedule makeup lessons. We can book makeups up to two weeks in advance.
  • In the event that the studio cancels a lesson (a teacher is out, etc.), you have the option of a substitute teacher if one is available; a makeup lesson; or we can credit the lesson to your account. Credits come off of the next month’s tuition bill.


There are 49 lessons per year.
