Weekly/Single Lessons

Our tuition fee is a monthly flat rate for private lessons paid in advance of each month. Lessons are scheduled every week of the month. This reserves your time slot with a regularly scheduled Instructor.

● Tuition is the same whether there are four or five weeks in a month. This works as a benefit to our students and as a result, we do not offer makeups for holidays or student absences. This encourages consistent learning and discipline, as well as supports the strong foundation of our school and its fabulous Instructors.

● Lessons that begin in the middle of a month will be prorated for the number of weeks/lessons remaining inthe given month.

● Our default autopay date is on the 25th of each month prior to pay for the following month’s lessons. For example; March lessons will be automatically charged to your card on file on February 25th.

Single Lessons :

● Must be paid in full at the time the lesson is scheduled.

● Cannot be scheduled more than a week in advance.

● No refunds are available.

● If you are not paying the monthly flat rate, we cannot guarantee the same instructor or time will be available the following week.

Makeup Lessons

PLEASE NOTE: As of January 2022, our policy is that we do not offer makeups for holidays or student absences. Your tuition pays for a time slot with an instructor every week; a make-up would require your Instructor to volunteer additional time outside of their confirmed scheduled lessons. If you need to miss a lesson, your options are:

● Gift the lesson (for the specific day/time being missed) to a friend/family member.

● It may be possible to switch an “in-person” to a virtual lesson with your Instructor at your lesson time.

● Miss the lesson that week. In the event that your instructor must miss a lesson, we will try our hardest to provide a qualified substitute Instructor for that time slot. If you choose not accept a lesson with an alternative instructor, you will not be credited for the canceled lesson. If we are unable to confirm a substitute, your regular Instructor will work with you to schedule a make-up lesson. If that is not possible, we will credit the lesson the next month.

Discontinuing Lessons

● In order to discontinue lessons, we prefer a month’s notice but REQUIRE 2 weeks’ notice to your school administrator (by the 15th of the month in order to cancel autopay for the next month.)

● We do not offer refunds after autopay is run between the 25th-30th of the month prior to the month the lessons will be taken .

Band Classes are a once-weekly, hour-long commitment.

Existing Students$110.00/month

● Make-ups and credits are not provided for Band cancellations on the part of the student, or if a Band Class(es) falls on a holiday.

● If the instructor or administration cancels, each Band Class participant will pay a reduced rate the following month.
