Six Strings Music Academy (6SMA) offers private guitar, piano, flute, violin, viola, bass, cello, drums, and voice lessons. Our lessons are taught on a one on one basis so that every student receives the individual attention they need. We offer all styles of music to students ages 5 to adult and at all skill levels.
Private Lesson Policy
Music lessons are given Monday through Thursday 12 - 8:30 pm, and Friday 12 - 5:30 pm of every week. Lessons are made up of 4 to 5 lessons per month.
Private lessons are offered 30 minutes once per week. Hour long lessons are also available, so please contact us for details. Our policy for students under the age of 11 must have a parent present for all lessons. Even if the parent has never studied music or played an instrument, they will always serve as a great mentor at home with their child. The parent can help remind and give direction to their child during the week of practice for the next lesson. We recommend that the parent bring a note pad and a pen to write notes to help re-teach at home. This helps the student’s progress in learning their instrument. The bonus is that the parent is involved in their child’s musical education and it’s fun for all of us.
There will be a one-time registration fee of $40.00. The registration fee is nonrefundable, and is paid upon registering students in lessons at 6SMA. The first month’s tuition is due at the time of registration as well.
Tuition is paid on a monthly basis. Payments are due the first week of each month for the entire month. If lessons are not paid you may lose your lesson time to someone on the waiting list or a late fee of $25.00 will be charged to your account in order to continue lessons. Full tuition is due every month regardless of attendance and/or holidays. Accounts not paid by the 7th of the month will be charged a $25.00 late fee. There is a $30.00 charge for all returned checks.
**We are happy to provide monthly invoices via email for your convenience.
Make-up lesson policy:
There are NO deductions, NO tuition refunds, and NO make-up lessons for cancelled or missed classes. Out of courtesy to the instructor, please call or email the studio if you cannot make it to your lesson that week and we will inform them that you will not be attending your lesson.
Drop Lesson Policy:
To discontinue lessons, we require a 30 day, paid, written notice. Please give written notice by filling out a Withdrawal Form, which is provided at the receptionist desk, during the first week of the month. If a Withdrawal Form is not received by us with 30 days notice, the account will continue to be due and payable. There are no refunds or transferable tuition for missed or cancelled lessons.
Tuition rates vary per instructor and per program student is signed up for. Tuition normally is set up for 4 lessons a month with one lesson per week. Occasionally there is a 5th lesson in certain months and tuition for the 5th week will be due also. Please stop by and visit to decide what program is right for your child or you. Hour-long Lessons are also available, please contact us for details.
