Policies on Lesson Plans, Fees, and Frequency


Lesson Plans

Lessons are tuition based.  There are 34 available lessons for those who begin the 1st of August.

There are three basic Lesson Plans:  Beginners, Most Students, and Teachers.

Lessons are weekly to maintain proper technique and avoid performance injuries to muscles, tendons and nerves.

Lesson fees

30 minute lesson  Beginners only & under 7 At 1st lesson of the month
45 minute lesson Most Students and Adults At 1st lesson of the month
1 hour lesson  Intermediate & Beyond Students including Adults At 1st lesson of the month

Other Fees

Music and Materials are additional and should be urtext (original).
Adjudications, Auditions, Recitals and/or Festival fees are set by the sponsoring organization. Dr. Siegel receives none of these fees and donates her time for these worthy events.

Annual Enrollment Fee

An annual enrollment fee of $50 accompanies each enrollment for each season. This fee covers mailings, copying, repertoire research time, preparing performance materials and other administrative needs for each student.


Please make checks payable to Dr. Judith S. Siegel. Tuition for lessons is by the month, in advance.  Payment is due at the first lesson of the month. Payment may be by cash or check. Some choose to arrange automatic payments.

Lesson Cancellations

If you are unable to make it to a lesson, thank you for giving  at least 24 hours notice.  Lessons canceled with less than 24 hours notice will be charged as if received except in cases of dire emergencies (family death).  There are no make up lessons for lessons you simply choose to not attend in lieu of another event. Please call; do not trust email alone.


Lesson Termination Policy

By you: If you decide to terminate lessons, one month written notice plus payment for all fees due, incuding that one month, is expected. If you are moving to another geographical area, Dr. Siegel will be happy to assist you in locating names of Nationally Certified Teachers in the new area.

By the Teacher: The teacher may terminate lessons for cause.


Music is sounds and silences.
