Lessons take place once a week for 35 weeks during the school year. Please refer to the calendar below for clarification. Please note that some lessons fall on holidays (Columbus Day, Veterans’ Day, etc.).
Students are expected to arrive on time to lessons with all necessary supplies (instrument, music, etc.). Lessons will not be extended for students who arrive late to lessons.
A commitment to daily practice is necessary for lessons to be effective.
Lesson Payment Policy
Students pay a fixed fee each month. This monthly tuition is due at, or prior to, the first lesson of each month. It is nonrefundable.
Payment reminders are sent to students by email. Nine tuition payments are due during the school year – one for each month from September through May. No tuition payment is due for the month of June.
The monthly tuition payments collectively cover all lessons for the school year. Tuition Rates (2020-2021 School Year): 30-minute lessons: $105/month (beginning students) 45-minute lessons: $140/month (intermediate students) 60-minute lessons: $175/month (advanced students)
Lesson Cancellation Policy
If a student cannot attend a lesson and gives reasonable notice, it may be possible to reschedule the lesson, but this is not guaranteed. Missed lessons will not be rescheduled. The monthly tuition is not dependent upon the number of lessons a student attends, and it will not be reduced for missed or cancelled lessons.
