Billing/Lesson Calendar

How it works:

Keep in mind that our tuition is based on 48 lessons per calendar year, which is an average of four lessons per month. Because of holidays, some months have less than four lessons--but months with five lessons make up for that. In other words, you pay on the first of each month, but it is simply a payment installment toward the 48 lessons you will receive per year, not a payment toward the amount of lessons you will receive in that particular month.
For example: In 2015, there were 52 Mondays, 52 Tuesdays, 52 Wednesdays, 53 Thursdays, and 52 Fridays. As you can see, there are more than 48 possible days for lessons in a calendar year.
Spring Break, Labor Day, Fall Break, and Winter Break edit our calendar down to 48 lessons per year, no matter which day you take your private lesson.
In summary, the best way for you to get the most "bang for your buck" both educationally and financially is to study year-round. See the paragraph below about how summer lessons work.
*Please try to remember that we do not receive paid vacation, sick days, personal days, etc. When teachers are sick or have an important conflict, they will make those lessons/classes up as soon as possible. Thank you for being patient when your lesson needs to be cancelled.

*If you miss a lesson for anything except illness, we can not make up the lesson. If you're sick for more than two lessons per year, we can not make up the lesson. Please give us as much advance notice as possible when cancelling for illness, and we will make the lesson up as soon as our schedules allow. Please note that the make up lesson may not necessarily be in the same month as the missed lesson.

How Does Summer Work?

School will be on break this summer, but we won't be! We teach year-round, and feel that summer may be the best time for students to get ahead in their private music studies before the busy school year begins. Use summer to try your hands at composing, sightreading, collaborating with other musicians, playing some pop music, or preparing for upcoming adjudications and competitions. We'd love to hear from you about your schedule, and can be very flexible during the summer months! Let's talk!
