Policies and Tuition

Tuition and registration for private lessons         Monthly tuition is $100.00 -no yearly commitment.

  • Tuition is the same every month regardless of the holidays or number of days in the month because it’s averaged based on a  47 week year
  • 30 minute lessons – $100.00 per month.  45 minute lessons – $150.00 per month. 60 minute lessons – $200.00 per month
  • Must re-register every August for new school year (Sept. – Aug.).
  • Paid registrations will be processed in the order received.
  • You will be contacted by email to confirm registration and schedule lesson time.
  • The first month’s tuition is paid in advance at time of registration.  We require payment one month in advance by the 15th of that month.  After you register you have 3 options of payment outlined at the end of this policy statement.
  • Non-payment by the 1st of the month will halt lessons until full payment is made and makes the time-slot in the teacher’s schedule available to other students.
