Music Greenhouse students are required to retain a credit card on file. Students are

not paid by the 10th, the card on file will be charged the full balance of tuition due
with the addition of a $20 late fee. For your convenience, we offer a monthly auto-pay program.
Cancellation and Withdrawal Policy
For lesson cancellations over 24 hours in advance, please email to
inform us of your absence. For cancellations under 24 hours in advance, please text 719-749-1515.
Monthly tuition guarantees your specific lesson time, room, and teacher. Tuition is
not refunded for missed lessons. Make-up lessons are issued for missed private lessons if
the student is sick, or if arranged with enough notice to offer the lesson time for that week to another student. In the case of sickness or family emergency, a make-up credit will be issued.
Please do not contact your teacher directly with attendance or billing questions. Our
office administration handles all scheduling, and will communicate any schedule
changes with them.
If you wish to withdraw from lessons, we ask that you notify us by the 20th of the month prior to when you want to withdraw from lessons. You can do so by emailing email@example.com. This allows us the opportunity to make the necessary adjustments to our teacher's schedules.
Music Greenhouse is located in School District 20, and if school is closed for the
day due to snow, we will provide makeup credits for those unable to safely attend
lessons. An overall determination will be made on whether Music Greenhouse
will be open for lessons only after D20 closes. Any closure will be communicated
on the website and via email. Makeup credits will be
issued in the event of closure.
Make-up lessons will be scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Makeup lessons
should be scheduled through your student login if possible. If no makeup time can be
found with the student's normal teacher, students can contact us at
to view additional teacher schedules. Students can also
use makeup lessons to try out other instruments by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
Make-up lessons expire after 60 days, and are limited to 3 make-ups per semester
(Fall, Spring, Summer). Makeup lessons must be scheduled during months in which the student
is already enrolled in lessons. They cannot be used to hold a scheduled lesson time past
the point that the student is enrolled. Makeup lessons cannot be used to credit a future invoice.
Current students are provided a school calendar that displays which days we are open
and whether we are on a 1st/3rd week schedule or a 2nd/4th week schedule (for students
taking two lessons a month).
We make every effort to work with our students to accommodate various scheduling
needs due to vacation or holidays, and provide make-up lessons working within our
policy guidelines. Please email as soon as you are
aware of a vacation or future absence, and we will strive to accommodate your
request. Please keep in mind your monthly tuition guarantees your specific lesson time, room,
and teacher. Tuition is not refunded for missed lessons.
Monthly tuition guarantees your lesson time and the equivalent number of lessons purchased. We teach three weeks in December. Students will either be provided an event credit or makeup if their lesson would have taken place on the 4th week. Event credits can be used for Grow Nights, Worship Nights, etc. Often, months will have a fifth week.
This weeks are frequently used for holiday weeks. See the calendar for the precise dates we are closed.
Music Greenhouse regularly hosts Grow Nights and Worship Nights. Grow Nights/Worship
Nights provide a safe, low pressure environment for our students to play,
sing, or lead worship in a recital environment.
Grow Night participation pricing is $20/participating student OR $30/family. Students
also receive an event credit in December that can be used to "pay" for one of these events.
Grow Nights and Worship Nights are free for family and friends to attend!
Lesson Start Times and Pick-Up
Music Greenhouse teachers make every effort to stay on schedule. Your scheduled
instructor will come to the waiting area when they are ready for your lesson to begin. If your teacher
does not come within a few minutes of your start time, please check-in with the teacher in room 200a
or text 719-749-1515.
Music Greenhouse is unable to supervise younger students. Please ensure students are
picked up promptly. In the event you will be late to pick up your student, please notify
your teacher, or text AND call the studio at (719) 749-1515, and we will ask your
student to wait inside and to let us know when you have arrived. This is for their
safety and the protection of our studio and teachers.
Students waiting for lessons and siblings waiting for students in a lesson need to be
seated in the waiting area quietly.
Please only use restrooms near the Music Greenhouse entrance.
Children under 12 are to be accompanied by an adult to the restroom.
Music Greenhouse shares space with Covenant Presbyterian Church and other
organizations. Everyone in the waiting area must be respectful of others working
inside the building. This includes keeping volume level quiet, and keeping
hallways clear. All MG students and parents are to remain in the designated
waiting area or in their vehicles when not in a lesson. All other areas of the
building are strictly off limits. Children accompanied by adults are welcome to use the
playground area on the south side of the building.
Music Greenhouse students are required to bring all assigned materials (i.e.
sheet-music, books, instruments, and any other materials assigned by teachers.)
Failure to bring a key item may result in an inability to complete the lesson. No
make-ups are issued when students are not prepared with required lesson materials.
Music Greenhouse recommends 4-5 days of practice per student per week.
General guidelines include: 10-15 minutes per day for beginners, 20-30 minutes or
more for intermediate/advanced students. While this is an ideal, we understand that
every student and family is unique. The amount of practice time required for each
student will vary and change over time.
Our primary goal at Music Greenhouse is to promote a love for music and growth in ability.
Practice time at home should do the same and will look different for every student. The best
judge of whether we're succeeding is whether or not the student enjoys their instrument. Please
contact if you have any concerns about practice time.
Parents and siblings are welcome to wait in the waiting area during the student's lesson. We find that students commonly concentrate better in lessons where family
members are not in the room. If parents or students desire to have family attend
lessons with them, please communicate this desire with your student’s teacher.
Professionalism and accountability are of the utmost importance to Music
Greenhouse. To ensure the protection of our students, and our teachers, we adhere
to the following standard without exception:
At least two adults are required to be in the area where minors are being taught at all times.
All lessons are taught in classrooms with windows.
If your child’s lesson falls early or late in the day, we may require parents to stay in the building
during the lesson to satisfy this standard. We will notify you if this is the case for your student.
Music Greenhouse values our students, and it is our desire to stay in communication
with our students. We strive to resolve any conflicts that arise with Biblical principles
and integrity. We believe that offense destroys relationship, and work to keep lines
of communication open, honest, and respectful to all involved. If you ever have any
concerns about your lessons, please do not hesitate to contact email@example.com.
We love to share our students’ performances and what they are working on in
lessons! Signing this contract grants permission for Music Greenhouse to use
your/your child’s first name, photo and/or video in promotional materials, website and
social media content, and blog posts. In order to protect privacy, we will not “tag”
these photos on social media, but you may tag them if you wish. We are always
thrilled when you share photos or video of your performances or practice with us!
