The Silbernik Music Academy offers outstanding private guitar, piano and ukulele lessons to students of all ages and skill levels.

There are currently two options for lesson enrollment: "Recurring Weekly Private Lessons" and "Single Non-Recurring Private Lessons".
RECURRING WEEKLY PRIVATE LESSONS
  • "Recurring Weekly Private Lessons" occur on the same time and day each week, and are on a month-to-month commitment. There is no commitment beyond the one-month time-frame, however we assume that recurring weekly lessons are on-going until informed otherwise.

  • Lessons are either 30 minutes, 45 minutes or one hour in duration.

  • Private lesson tuition is $30 for 30 minutes, $45 for 45 minutes and $60 for one hour.

  • Students are expected to attend their lessons every week at their scheduled day and time.

  • Rescheduling of lessons, or make-up sessions for missed lessons, is solely at the discretion of the Silbernik Music Academy.

  • If at some point you need to change your recurring lesson time, we will happy to change your time to another available time slot.

  • Invoicing for "Recurring monthlyly Private Lessons" will occur on a monthly basis, at the end or beginning of each upcoming month. So if, for example, your scheduled lessons are on Thursdays in an upcoming month, you will be billed your monthly tuition for the number of Thursdays (4 or 5) in that month.

  • You must pay your monthly tuition on or before the first scheduled lesson of each calendar month. This will reserve a specific weekly recurring time slot for you.

SINGLE NON-RECURRING PRIVATE LESSONS

If a monthly commitment seems like it will not work, we can schedule single, non-recurring private lessons.
  • Scheduling of a "Single Non-Recurring Private Lesson" is subject to the instructor's availability, and does not guarantee the availability of any future lesson times in the same time slot.

  • Single lessons can only be scheduled one week of the lesson time, and are either 30 minutes, 45 minutes or one hour in duration.

  • Tuition for "Single Non-Recurring Private Lessons" is $30 for 30 minutes, $45 for 45 minutes and $60 for one hour.

  • Invoicing for "Single Non-Recurring Private Lessons" will occur at the time the lesson is scheduled. Remittance must occur on or before the scheduled lesson time.

  • There are no makeup sessions or rescheduling of "Single Non-Recurring Private Lessons".

ATTENDANCE

Lesson times are standing appointments. When you register for lessons, we reserve your selected timeslot for you. Therefore, we expect each student to attend their scheduled lessons.

No refunds, credits, or makeup lessons will be offered for missed lessons.

Exceptions are at the sole discretion of the Silbernik Music Academy. (See the"Cancellations", "Teacher Absences" and "Holiday Closings" sections of this document.)

Lesson times cannot be extended due to late arrival.

  • If there is some other situation that will cause a conflict with your scheduled lesson(s), please let us know as soon as possible, and we will try to work it out.

  • If you do need to cancel a lesson, please give us as much advance notice as possible so that we can offer your time to another student.

  • Previous comments notwithstanding, we expect that students will attend their lessons at their scheduled times.

  • In all cases credit for missed lessons, or makeup lessons, are solely at the discretion of the Silbernik Music Academy.

  • Makeup lessons must occur within 30 days of the missed lesson. Credits will be applied to the following month's invoice.
