Studio Policy

These simple guidelines are what keep Sunny Side Music Denton running smoothly and effectively, and ensure that all students receive the equal attention they deserve.


  • Tuition is calculated annually and divided into 10 monthly installments, from August to May.​ The tuition is the same every month.​​ The student is guaranteed that the teacher will be teaching the number of lessons scheduled.

  • Tuition also includes a recital performance opportunity per year.

  • Tuition is due on the 1st of each month. A $5 late fee will be added to payments made after the 10th of each month.

  • Payment options:


  • When students enroll, they are reserving their placement in the studio for the entire year. The enrollment is a firm, mutual commitment, and guarantees your place in the studio. Be sure to choose a lesson time that will not conflict with other activities.


Canceled Lessons and Makeup Lessons

  • Please notify your teacher by text or email if you cannot make it to your lesson.​ Due to the limited time slots at the studio, the schedule is often at maximum capacity; therefore, makeup lessons cannot be guaranteed. 

  • An online lesson during the student’s normal time slot is always an option for students who cannot attend their lesson due to mild illness, inclement weather, etc.

  • If the student cannot, or will not use the online option, the student will simply miss the benefit of that lesson. The teacher will then use that time to plan for the student's progress, locate materials, etc.

  • Lessons canceled with less than 24-hour notice will not be rescheduled.

  • If the student misses or cancels the rescheduled lesson, it will not be rescheduled a second time.

  • If the teacher needs to cancel lessons, the teacher will use one of the flex weeks. If two flex weeks have already been used, the teacher will then make up or refund the canceled lesson


Flex Weeks

  • Flex weeks are lessons that the student is not charged for. For example, if there are 39 weeks, the tuition is paying for 37 lessons. The extra 2 weeks allow the teacher to cancel lessons in the event of illness or an emergency. If the teacher does not have a need to use those flex weeks, the student receives these lessons free of charge!


  • If a student is late, this simply takes time out of the lesson, i.e. the lesson will start when the student arrives and will still finish at the original time.

Media Release

  • Sunny Side Music Denton reserves the right to use photographs and videos of the students and their responsible adults for commercial advertising.
