so you can make the most of your music education!
Lesson Rates and Lesson Policy
Your interest has brought you here, and our staff is ready to assist you in learning to play, read, understand, and appreciate all aspects of music as it applies to your instrument. Regular lesson attendance is important! Your lesson time slot is set aside for you and you only. We approach teaching music with a very upbeat attitude. Please note that to see any sort of progress on your instrument you, the student, should be willing to put in at least thirty minutes of practice time every day. If you miss your scheduled lesson time you put a damper on steady progress and enjoyable singing or playing. Please be prompt and attentive. Learn to Burn does not give refunds.
By attending as a student, you agree to the following policies.

All students under 18 years old are expected to perform at least once per year, and adult students are strongly encouraged to participate! Recital fees will be set by the staff and may differ from event to event. Some recitals will be free for audience members and some will require tickets.
Supplies and Transportation
Students should arrive and depart from lessons on time. Parents, please be prompt in picking up your child.If you are unable to attend due to transportation issues, ask your teacher about attending a virtual lesson during your scheduled time spot.
Each teacher has a different list of supplies that you will need to bring to your lesson. In general:
- Guitar students will need to bring their instrument, picks, notebook, tuner, and any handouts that have been given.
- Drum students will need to bring their sticks and a notebook.
- Voice students will need to bring a water bottle and 3-ring binder containing handouts, lyrics, sheet music, and notebook paper.
- Piano students will need to bring their books and a notebook.
Cancelled or Missed Lessons
There are no refunds or make-up lessons for missed or cancelled lessons.
Your lesson time is very important not only to you the student but also to your instructor. No one can fill your spot so please mark your calendar every week for your lesson. It is the student’s responsibility to find transportation to and from his or her lesson, or ask to attend virtually for that week at your scheduled time. Do not cancel due to lack of practice. Please let your teacher know if you are running late or will not make your lesson. Do not expect that we can reschedule you, especially if you cancel the day of the lesson. If your teacher has an open time available, and if you give us enough advance notice, we may be able to move your lesson to a different time, but there are no guarantees. If your instructor misses a lesson, he or she will offer a make-up lesson or credit your account for the following month. You can read why we have this policy HERE.
