Private Lesson Tuition
(Please scroll down for Class information)
Tuition for private lessons currently averages $136/month for a weekly 30-minute lesson. It may be slightly higher or lower depending upon the teacher and instrument. There is a $35 registration fee for families new to the studio or those returning after an absence.
Private Lesson Policy
- Tuition is due on the first lesson of the month, in advance for the month. Depending upon the teacher, this is either paid by check to your teacher on the first lesson day of each month or charged automatically to your credit card through the studio.
- Tuition covers four lessons a month. When a month has five lesson days in it, the fifth is used to balance out a month that has only had three lessons in it due to a holiday or scheduled teacher absence.
- Tuition is not prorated for missed lessons. Rescheduling a lesson requires at least 48-hour notice given directly to your teacher. Make-ups for lessons missed with this notice will be given as soon as time becomes available in your teacher’s schedule or on a designated make-up day. If sufficient notice is not given for a missed lesson, the student forfeits that lesson and tuition is used to hold the spot. In the event of sudden illness we try to be flexible, but a make-up cannot be guaranteed unless the teacher has had adequate time to temporarily fill your slot with another student.
- Please make your lesson time a priority; if an excessive amount of makeups is required (more than about 2 a quarter) we may not be able to hold a permanent spot for you.
Group Class Tuition
Our 2017-18 classes run from mid-August through the end of June. Tuition is charged monthly: $72/month for Grownup 'N Me, Preschool Tunes, and Exploring Music; $80/month for Foundations; $55/month for Intro to Singing. You may join any time if there is space in the class. There is a $35 enrollment fee for new families or those returning after an absence. If you need to miss a class you are welcome to schedule a makeup by going to the Makeup Scheduler under our Classes tab. Please understand that makeups are not guaranteed and we do not prorate for missed classes. We ask families to limit makeups to one or two a quarter so there are enough slots for everyone who needs them.
