Class Policies

Tuition, Payment and Missed Classes

Classes operate much like a year-round private school.  Monthly payments are based on an average number of lessons scheduled in the calendar year and not based on the number of classes per month. Therefore, your tuition will remain the same each month and is based on enrollment, not attendance.  There are an average of 40 scheduled class dates and regular performances included in tuition.

The tuition rates are as follows:

Monthly tuition for 30-min Classes: $115

Monthly tuition for 45-min Classes: $165

Monthly tuition for 60-min Classes: $225

Please note : If joining mid month, 30 min classes will be prorated at $35 per lesson; 45 minute classes will be prorated at $52 per lesson; 60 minute classes will be prorated $70. (Only applies to new students. No other months will be prorated.)

Tuition is due by the first of each month. Payments received after the 5th of the month will be billed a $10 late payment fee.

Students are allowed one makeup class for every 12 lessons as long as account is current and a minimum of 24-hour’s notice is given to instructor. Instructors will make up any lessons they miss if a suitable substitute is not available. No other makeup classes will be provided nor money refunded for classes missed.

Discontinuation of Classes

When enrolling in classes, a particular time slot is held for each student. Therefore, advance notice of discontinuation is needed. Student may withdraw at any time with a minimum 30-day notice by email prior to the first day of a new month. For example, if a student wants to withdraw by November 1st, then the office needs written notification no later than October 1st. Any notification after October 1st for a November withdrawal will still be charged for November.
 Invoices are sent monthly via PayPal. PayPal accepts credit cards, debit cards, and electronic checks.
