Summit Guitar School Policies


– Students are required to pay their monthly tuition in advance.
– Payments must be received by the first lesson of each month.
– A 15.00 late fee will be assessed on all payments made after the 10th of the month.

Lesson attendance

Students are required to be present for each lesson throughout the session.  When you enroll for your lessons, you are reserving that specific time/day for the entire semester. You are not only paying for the one on one time with the instructor you are also paying for us to hold your time slot. Because we are at capacity it makes it hard to switch days/times. Lessons will not be taught on Lee’s Summit school district’s Christmas break.  We do offer lessons throughout spring break to those who are in town and or available.  Lessons run through the summer as well.


Students are expected to practice outside of class.  Regular practice is essential to the students success.  The sooner they practice after each class the more information they will retain.  Parental involvement is also necessary with elementary aged students.  Please help your rock star in training to establish good practice habits.  They will reap the rewards, we promise.


Students who cancel with 24 hours or more notice will be given a lesson voucher to use for a make up lesson. If the student fails to show up or cancel within the 24 hour policy the lesson will not be made up.  If the student cancels more than one lesson in 8 weeks that lesson will not be made up.  If the student is 15 minutes late that lesson time will be forfeited. If for some reason the teacher cannot make the assigned lesson time the student will also be given a lesson voucher to be used on the make up session.  Tuition covers more than the one on one time with the student.

Make-up lessons happen one Saturday every 8 weeks.  Each student is allowed one make-up lesson per 8 weeks of class.  The make-up voucher can be used on these days.  The available time slots will be listed on our calendar page.   When you find a time slot that you would like, please email or call us to schedule the make-up.  The times are first come first served.  If  you schedule a make-up lesson and have to cancel, the lesson will be forfeited. If you cannot make the Saturday that the make-ups are offered, you can use it on the next make-up session.  Lesson vouchers must be used within 2 make-up sessions.


Private lessons:

30 minute lessons- 110.00 per month (flat rate)
50 minute lessons- 190.00 per month (flat rate)

It is a flat rate billing system, regardless of the number of weeks in the month. This makes it easier for you to know the exact amount each month. If your lesson falls on a major holiday, your month will be pro-rated.

Group lessons:

50 minute beginner group lessons are $18.00 per class.

Classes with less than 3 students enrolled are subject to standard lesson rates.

Stopping Lessons

If you decide that you no longer want to take lessons please notify us at least a month in advance.  If you decide that you need to stop lessons in the middle of the month no refund will be given for the remainder of the month. Your time slot is designated to you and if you decide you need to stop taking lessons we need to be able to open the time slot as soon as possible so that another student can be scheduled in your place.
