PAYMENT METHODS: Tallant Music Studio accepts cash, check made payable to Tallant Music Studio, LLC, Visa, Discover, Mastercard, or American Express. There is a $30 returned payment fee. Payment is available on the website, over the phone, or in the studio. 

MATERIALS FEES: There is an additional fee for books, other materials and supplies. Materials fees are non-refundable. Your instructor will either purchase the materials directly and request reimbursement, or will ask the student to purchase the materials themselves.

WITHDRAWALS: Students may withdraw from lessons at any time but a refund for the term will only be issued on a case by case basis. Please note that should in-person lessons have to halt, we will not issue refunds for the term. All lessons will continue in a virtual platform. 

ATTENDANCE POLICY: Please choose your lesson times very carefully as the instructor reserves that time slot for the student each week. Please notify your instructor at least 24 hours in advance of the scheduled lesson time if you must miss a lesson. Students arriving late for lessons will use only the remaining time left in the lesson. To cancel or to discuss scheduling issues, please contact your instructor. We are not obligated to make up any missed lessons if the student has made no effort to contact their instructor. If an instructor must miss a lesson, they are responsible to make that lesson up. 

PERFORMANCE OPPORTUNITIES: Please contact your instructor about various competitions and performance opportunities in the area. There are several throughout the NKY and Tri-State region. We will have studio-wide recitals at the end of each term. Mark your calendars for Saturday, August 14th for the Summer 2021 Recital. Location TBD.
