Enrollment is for four nine-week terms and summer term varies by studio, to be determined by individual teachers.
Location of lessons
It is the School’s intention that all lessons take place on-site where we provide pianos, administrative support, adequate parking, quiet lesson space and liability insurance. If the teacher and parent/student agree to hold lesson(s) off-site, tuition is still paid to the School,and the parent/student will release the School and teacher of all liability.
Registration and Tuition Registration fee: A registration fee of $25 is paid once annually. Additional family members pay $10.
Tuition: If a student begins within a term, that term is pro-rated. Tuition is due by the first week of each term. Reminders are posted in the School two weeks before the due date. A $20 late fee is added to tuition paid after the second week of a term. A fee of $20 will be charged to cover the costs of a returned check. How: Fees can be paid by check, cash, or credit card (Visa/Mastercard/Discover). Credit card payments are made through the office, checks and cash can be delivered to the office or handed in to your teacher at your lesson. Contact the office to set up automatic payments. We do not offer an online payment option.

Make-up policies are determined by each teacher and a copy is given to the student at the first lesson. The teacher will notify students if for any reason, including bad weather, he/she will not be teaching. If the teacher misses a lesson, he/she will make it up. Ifthe teacher is here, his/her classes are held even in bad weather.
Withdrawal and Refunds Any student who plans to withdraw at the end of a term must notify the teacher and the office two weeks before the end of the term or pay half of the next term tuition. If a student withdraws within a term, a pro-rated refund will be granted as follows: 50% after the first week; 25% after the second week. No refund will be given after the third week. A student may change teachers at the end of a term or a teacher may ask that a student be assigned to another teacher.
