Cornerstone Academy of Clarinet
Option II: Exclusive Study with Dr. Barger

-- Lesson and Payment Policies

It is possible for students to study exclusively with Dr. Barger on an extremely limited space-available basis.

All exclusive lessons with Dr. Barger as your private instructor must be paid for at the beginning of each session (weekly) or for the entire month’s lessons due at the first lesson of the month (weekly tuition fees are: $35 for 1/2 hour; $50.00 for 3/4 hour; $65 for hour lessons--Dr. Barger usually allows a short grace period for all lesson times.) All checks are to be made out to: Cornerstone Academy of Clarinet, LLC.

Lesson cancellation policy: due to Dr. Barger's extremely active and busy schedule, she must plan her family and professional life around students' lesson times.  Unfortunately and historically, some students cancel lessons at the last minute for a variety of reasons other than illness or emergencies.  Out of respect for Dr. Barger and her family, the following policy guidelines apply:

  • 24-hours advanced notice is required for the cancellation of a lesson.
  • Cancellation must be made by telephone call (402-770-5864) with appropriate reason for cancellation. You may also send an e-mail to dbarger@cornerstoneclarinet.com, but the phone call is still required.
  • Acceptable excuses include illness or family-related emergencies until abuse of this is suspected at the discretion of Dr. Barger.
  • Lessons may not be cancelled due to lack of preparation!
  • Please consult your family, school, work, and/or extra-curricular activity calendars before you schedule your lesson. No lessons will be made-up for cancellations due to calendar neglect.
  • Payment will be collected for any lesson cancellation not meeting the above criteria.

If the bank returns your check, you will be charged a $25.00 cash fee above and beyond the original amount of the check, as this is the fee our bank charges us for processing a returned check. If you submit a subsequent returned check, Dr. Barger will consider whether or not the Cornerstone Academy wishes to continue a relationship with you. If it is determined to continue working together, you will be required to pay cash, money order, or certified check only from that point forward after all appropriate returned check fees are paid to us.

If you or anyone else wishes to attend your child’s lesson as a guest, silence must be maintained in the studio. If it is perceived a guest is creating a distraction for the student, the guest will be asked to wait outside or the lesson will be immediately terminated with no refund offered.
