Private Lesson Tuition and Payment
Payment will be required on a monthly basis. Tuition is divided into 12 equal monthly payments, to be paid in full by the 10th of each month. The student is responsible for delivering tuition on or before the 10th of each month. The instructor will not teach any lessons for which the instructor has not been paid. Late payments may incur a late fee of $1 for each day late. The teacher reserves the right to raise fees annually at the beginning of each academic year to reflect increased cost of living and inflation rates, as well as increased professional development on the part of the teacher and general studio improvements.
Tuition will vary depending on the length of the lessons taken. Beginners should start with 30 minute lessons. Intermediate level students are encouraged to progress to 45 minute lessons. Advanced level students are required to take hour long lessons.
The tuition rates are determined based on a calendar of 42 weekly private lessons.

Music Lab Lesson Fees
Music lab time can be reserved in addition to the student’s regularly scheduled private lesson time. Lab lessons incorporate lesson concepts that the student is focusing on each week in their private lesson. These activities follow the standards of the “Double Click Curriculum” assignment guidelines, with activities specifically coordinated to go along with each student’s level and particular assignment for each week. Students will also be able to take some of these games and activities with them for at-home practice with their own student accounts. For those who wish for extra time in the “music lab” in addition to their private lesson time, 15 minute time slots can be reserved either before or after the student’s regularly scheduled lesson time for an extra $20 per month.
