Tuition Plan

The Conservatory year begins Sept. 1, 2018, and ends August 31, 2019.  We schedule 34 lessons during the school year (this year 36 are scheduled and I may cancel 2 for any reason) and 6 lessons in the summer.

We do not observe any holidays except those listed on our date sheet.  Sign-up sheets for the summer lessons are available in June.

Annual Tuition Plan: Policies

  1. Tuition is due by the 7th of the month.
  2. Regular attendance is absolutely necessary to ensure continuity and progress. There will be no make-up lessons or adjustments in tuition for occasional absences due to illness or other conflicts. Parent conferences, special events, and recitals should more than compensate for an occasional absence.
  3. Tuition will be prorated for students who discontinue lessons before the session ends on August 31, 2019. Tuition is calculated per private lesson as follows but includes all group activities:
    • 30 min. lesson ($33.00)
    • 45 min. lesson ($45.00)
    • 60 min. lesson ($60.00)
    • 75 min. lesson ($75.00)
    • 90 min. lesson ($90.00)
    • 105 min. lesson ($105.00)
