Lesson Time

Due to travel/traffic, exact start time may vary for in-home lessons. Lesson minutes include from when Melanie enters your home to when she leaves. Lessons are scheduled back to back, so extra time cannot be given if you are late.

Lesson Room
Only the teacher and student are permitted in the lesson room.
Please have a quiet room, free from distractions, available.

Melanie cannot be responsible for supervising any children before/after their lesson time. Another adult must be present in the home during lessons. Parents should make sure children are prepared to sit through an entire lesson without them and can listen and follow directions. Parents are expected to support their child's practice sessions at home.

New students may schedule their first lesson at any time. Returning students schedule lessons month-to-month. Scheduling preference is given to students who schedule a weekly lesson slot for the entire upoming calendar month. Lesson slots are not reserved until paid for and cannot be changed (times or dates) once confirmed.


To reserve lessons slots, pay for lessons by date due.
Payment for next month's lessons is due the last day of the current month (i.e. payment for Jan. lessons is due Dec. 31). For new students, payment is due 48 hrs before the initial lesson. Until paid for, slots are still open to other students! Pay by Venmo. No refunds or credits.

Student Cancellations

Once payment is received, students may not change lesson dates/times. There are no makeup lessons or refunds if you cancel or are absent. While illness is not an exception to the policy, it is appreciated if you cancel if the student has a contagious illness.

Teacher/Weather Cancellations
All lessons canceled by Melanie will be rescheduled. Occasionally, Melanie may ask a student to fill an earlier slot in the schedule--your flexibility is appreciated! In the case of a declared snow emergency (or if local schools have canceled afternoon/evening classes), students will have the option of rescheduling their lessons at no charge. Otherwise, cancellation policy is as stated above. For safety, your driveway/front steps must be cleared of snow and ice.

For in-home lessons, parking must be available (on street is fine), except in the case of homes in Beacon Hill. Student is responsible for any meter/garage fees.

Discontinuing Lessons
Students who choose to discontinue lessons will not be refunded for lesson already paid for. Melanie reserves the right to discontinue lessons and will refund the student for any untaught lessons, except in cases where the student failed to to follow studio policies.

Agreement To Terms
By scheduling and paying for lessons, you/the student agree to Maz Music Studio policies. Lesson policies are subject to change, and any changes will be posted here.
