Studio Policies 

  • 24-hour notice is required for cancelled lessons; otherwise, payment is still expected. You will not be charged for a cancellation due to bad weather if I am notified by 9 AM on the day of the lesson.  In such cases, lessons may be conducted via Skype or rescheduled.  The only exception is for student illness; in that case, please notify me by the time of the lesson and we'll reschedule.

  • If an online lesson can't be completed because of a technical issue, e.g., if the WiFi fails on either end, the lesson will be rescheduled.

  • Lessons are scheduled on a weekly basis to guarantee you a preferred day and time. If you wish to schedule more than one week between lessons, I can't guarantee your preferred lesson day and time; however every effort will be made to accommodate your particular scheduling needs.

  • Payments for lessons and reeds may be made in advance or at the time of the lesson. I offer online billing and payments via Paypal and Venmo.
    All lessons MUST be paid for by the time of the lesson


My studio is in Dedham, MA, convenient to Routes 1, 95, and 128. There is ample on-street parking.
