Lesson Fees: Lessons are $100 per month or $25 for four one half hour lessons. For those months that have five weeks in them, I will take the fifth week off. I will let you know in advance what days we will schedule your four lessons. Payment should be in cash or checks payable to Vince Kirk. (I can’t accept checks made out to the store). Absolutely no unpaid lessons will be given.

Payment for the month is due before the first lesson of each month to reserve your time. Payments made after the first lesson of the month will be subject to a $10 late fee and your time slot cannot be reserved. If your time slot is not paid for before the first lesson of the month, or if you fail to attend the first lesson of the month without prior notification, your time slot will be given to the next person on the waiting list. No exceptions.

No refunds or credits will be given if you fail to show up for lessons

Missed Lessons: Please remember that you are paying for a scheduled time slot and there is no guarantee that a missed lesson can be made up. Consequently, I can only try to reschedule those lessons where I have prior notification that you cannot come. I will work with you to the best of my ability that my schedule allows if you will….

Provide prior notification that would possibly allow me to schedule make‑up times for you and other students.

Call my cell phone (913-515-2417) at least 48 hours in advance when needing to cancel a lesson. You can also email me at vince@vincekirk.com.


I do realize that unexpected situations can occur that cause you to miss a lesson

At the last minute, but please remember that I show up even if you don’t and I 

Can not make last minute cancellations available to another student..

However, please remember that due to my heavy student load, make‑up times are not always available and any possible makeups must be resheduled within 30 days.

If we all follow these guidelines this can be a positive experience for each of us if we work together. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Reserving Time Slots: Some students may need to interupt their lesson schedule for summer vacations and other reasons. In those instances where this will result in the student missing the majority of, or the intire month or more, a non refundable $45 retainer fee will be required in advance to hold the students existing time slot.
