Paying for Lessons

Monthly tuition is recurring on the first of each month through automatic payment via credit card or checking account. Students also may purchase lesson packages or individual lessons on GLSM website:

Student Absences

Students who miss a scheduled lesson may make it up by providing their teacher with a video of their assignment. This may be sent to their
teacher provided that 24 hours notification is given to GLSM prior to cancellation. The teacher will provide commentary to the student at their next lesson. As an alternative makeup lesson, at the teachers’ discretion, students may be scheduled for a makeup lesson based upon teacher availability. Any form of a makeup lesson must be completed within 30 days of tuition payment.

Teacher Absences

GLSM will make every attempt to provide a substitute teacher in the event that a teacher cancels. If GLSM is unable to provide a substitute teacher, the private lesson will be rescheduled.

Inclement Weather

When the building needs to be closed due to inclement weather, GLSM staff will make every attempt to notify students by email or text. GLSM does not follow the public schools open/close schedule. Private lessons will be rescheduled based upon the earliest teacher availability.


Students, parents, family and legal guardians of minor students waive the right to any legal action for any injury sustained on the premises at any GLSM locations, resulting from normal lesson activity or any other activity conducted by the students before, during or after lesson time.

Discontinuing Lessons
