A non-refundable $40.00 registration fee per family is paid by new students at the time of enrollment.
Tuition is charged per semester (17-19 weeks/lessons). Tuition is determined based on the lesson duration and the
day of the week the lessons are scheduled. One semester tuition packages are as follows: 30 min. lessons - $612 to
$684; 45 min. lessons - $816 to $912; 60 min. lessons - $1,020 - 1,140.
Tuition is paid in full before the first lessons of each semester. If you choose to have a payment plan a two month
payment (first and last) is due before the first lesson. The rest of the tuition is paid monthly. Tuition is prorated for
students who register after the school year has started. Payments are made by credit card or check. Tuition does not
include cost of books, instruments, and supplemental materials, unless otherwise noted.
3. Withdrawals and Refunds
Request for withdrawal is made in writing only (e-mail or US Postal Service mail) directly to the office at least a month
in advance. Mailed requests must be dated and signed. You will receive a refund for the remainder of the tuition
starting a month from the date the notice is received. All panding make ups must be completed during that month.
Refund for pending make ups will not be given. The registration fee is non-refundable.
Returned checks will be subject to a $25.00 fee.
Each student will be given two make up lessons per semester due to excused student cancellations. The school
must be notified at least 3 hours before the beginning of the lesson by leaving a voice mail or sending an email.
Shorter notices will not be acknowledged. Make ups may be scheduled with a different teacher depending on
availability. FORGETTING A LESSON IS NOT AN EXCUSED ABSENCE AND A MAKE UP WILL NOT BE
GRANTED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. Make up lessons CANNOT be rescheduled. Make up lessons and
unused lessons cannot be credited to the next semester neither in the form of a make up nor as a payment credit.
Lessons missed by the teacher will be made up upon mutual agreement of day and time. Late arrivals will not be
compensated by extending the lesson.
Parents are responsible for helping the student schedule daily practice time and for providing safe and quiet
environment for their child's practice session.
At the end of each semester students perform in a student recital. All students taking private lessons are expected to
participate. A fee of $25.00 per attending adult will be charged in advanced. Children attend for free.
