Stapleton Music Lab Policies:
Stapleton Music Lab allows students to sign-up for introductory lessons, private lessons and group lessons. Group workshops and camps are also offered periodically.
Intro Lesson: Each student may sign up for an intro lesson or lessons at Stapleton Music Lab, and they are billed at the time of booking.
Autopay/monthly: Students may sign-up for a monthly lesson plan for private and/or group lessons. Payment for monthly lessons are done with an autopay system and the cost of the program reflects a discounted rate based on a one month commitment, whether that month contains three, four or five weeks of lessons (yearly average is four lessons).
