I charge a yearly tuition (From Sep to Aug) that covers 42/52 weeks of lessons, recital fees, etc.

- In the summer students have 5 weeks off (their choice)
- They can make up missed lessons from the school year
- They can pay for extra lessons
- If they miss a lesson in the summer they can choose to make it up or not (but by Sep 1st - the start of the next 'year')
- I keep the same schedule as the school year unless a parent asks for something else in the summer.

Re22, I'm not sure what 42/52 means. Are you open for business 52 weeks a year?

Oh, I'm sorry. It means I teach 42 weeks out of the 52 week year. To answer your second question, if they family wants yes I will teach 52 weeks a year smile

I live in Switzerland and my daughter has five weeks off. I take the full five weeks off, too, unless someone specifically requests lessons and I am around and willing to teach. It wouldn't work any other way here, and to be honest, I look forward to the five weeks away from teaching.

As an aside, my daughter (8 years old) does walk everywhere by herself, but that's completely the norm here.
