A registration fee is assessed one time per family per school year (September through August)

  • Registration, $25.00

 

Students and parents may consult with the office in their choice of teachers and lesson times. One may choose to study for 30, 45 or 60 minutes at a time. Advice on length of lesson can be given by the teacher with reference to the level of study and age of student. 

The cost for one private lesson per week for most instructors is:

  • 30 minutes - $32.00
  • 45 minutes - $48.00
  • 60 minutes - $64.00

Contact Us  for exceptions to this fee schedule.  

Membership in some ensembles requires an audition. Contact Us to set up an appointment with the instructor.  

The fee for an ensemble or class is collected in full at the time of registration. Those starting these classes late as new students will pay a partial fee based on weeks remaining.

  • Rehearsal - $30.00 per hour (prorated, based on 20-minute increments)
  • Performance -  $30.00/hour (prorated, divided by the number of students needing an accompanist) 

When a student registers for lessons, a down payment towards the lesson fee is required with the registration fee. When this is done, the office personnel will reserve a lesson time for the student. Before the down payment is made, a lesson time cannot be guaranteed nor can the teacher give any lessons.

The amount of the down payment is to be 35% of the lesson fees for the fall and spring semesters, and 50% for the summer session.

After the registration fee and down payment are paid, the lesson fee balance for that session will be billed monthly. The balance may be paid in one payment for the summer session, two payments for the fall session, or three payments for the spring session. The due dates of these payments are:

  • Fall session - First Monday of October and November by 5:00 PM.
  • Spring session - First Monday of February, March, and April by 5:00 PM.
  • Summer session - Last Monday of July by 5:00 PM. 

If payments are not made by the payment due dates above, the student’s lessons may be put on hold until payment is made. Lack of payment may result in a student losing his or her time slot with the teacher.

5% Discount is given on instruction tuition with  full payment of the entire year's tuition (fall and spring sessions) at the time of registration in the fall. 
 
3% Discount will be given on tuition with full payment for the session made in advance at the beginning of the session.

1% Finance charge of will be posted to balances remaining at the close of the sessions.
 
NSF Check Finance Charge There is a $30 fee for checks returned due to insufficient funds or charges made to invalid credit cards.

Limited scholarship funds may be available to qualified students. These funds will be distributed according to need and applicable for only one term at a time. Interested students should submit a written request to the director. All scholarship awards will be applied when the remaining balance of the student's account for that term is equivalent to the scholarship.

If a student overpays during a session for any reason, the amount of the overpayment maybe carried over to the next session as a credit for lesson fees.  If the student wishes to receive a refund for the overpayment, a written request must be given to the office personnel. 

If the student decides to stop lessons by the drop date and informs the office in writing, he or she has no further financial obligation for the rest of the session. Credits will be issued for unused lessons.

If the student stops lessons after the drop date, no refund or credit will be given the student except in very special circumstances (i.e. broken arm, moving out of state, or extended illness.) This policy exists as a protection to the teacher, who has secured a time for you and turned away another student.

Withdrawal dates for the 2012-2013 school year are October 19, 2012 (fall semester) and February 8, 2013 (spring semester).
