Cancellation Policy

Many times I leave the house by 6:00 A.M. and do not return until after midnight, to call your house before or after these hours would be rude and unnecessary.   Due to everyone’s varying schedules it is crucial for me to know in advance about cancellations.  This way I can offer other students make-up lessons. Flexibility in scheduling is very important to the student who has an audition coming up or who has a conflict with another important activity they are involved with. Obviously there are many things to be taken care of to keep my service improving. 


Of course if a cancellation occurs due to illness you will not be charged. You still need to contact me with in the week, so that I know what happened and to confirm our next appointment.

Any time you are going to cancel even if it does not fall within the time constraints you still need to call.  The effort to cancel as soon as possible and the reason for canceling also deserve some flexibility on my part. There is only one way to reach me for all cancellations and communication. You can call or text at any time 24 hours a day.  Phone: 847-549-1670

Please do not try to get a message to me at any schools or other phone numbers you might have. It is my cell phone.

These guidelines will make scheduling much more flexible for all involved. They have been developed during the past forty-three years of private instruction.

If you have any questions or concerns I would be more than happy to discuss anything with you.
