TEACHING HOURS: Cory teaches Monday – Friday (8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern U.S. time) and normally does not teach Saturday except for make-ups or occasional rescheduling. No lessons are held on Sunday. The teaching and holiday schedule corresponds to a three-semester plan (see above). The usual monthly rates still apply in months with teacher holidays (see “Semester Schedule” above).
PAYMENTS: Lesson payments are due by the end of the month for the following month (by the 30thmost months and by the 27thin February). It is important that payments are received promptly on time.
RATES & FEDERAL HOLIDAYS: Lesson rates are calculated on an average of four-week months. In the case of five-week months, students receive one free lesson which compensates for the Federal Holidays in the U.S. when lessons are not held, and which do not occur within the teacher holidays listed above in the “Semester Schedule”: Memorial Day (May 27), Independence Day (July 4), Thanksgiving (November 28-29).
CANCELATIONS: If Cory cancels lessons for any reason, then missed lessons will either be credited or made-up (usually on Saturday). Missed lessons by the student will not be made up or credited except for unusual circumstances (such as childbirth, deaths in the family, or other unavoidable emergencies).
THE WELL-ROUNDED PIANIST: In addition to teaching privately via Skype, Cory also maintains a subscription-based piano education website at WellRoundedPianist.com. WRP was founded in 2017 and is a vibrant and growing website with avid piano students around the world (of all ages) who learn all aspects of piano and theory from Cory. Private Skype students of Cory are encouraged to join WRP, since it contains a wealth of instructional videos and resources that supplements regular weekly lessons. The current rates for WRP are $12.95 per month or a discounted 124.32 per year (20% off).
