Payment Policy



Tuition is paid for by session.

  • Most sessions cover 8 weeks of lessons.

  • Summer Session covers 10 weeks of lessons.

If a teacher’s schedule permits it, new students are able to start lessons in the middle of a session. If so, the student will be billed only for the lessons from their start date till the end of the session.


Each session’s tuition must be paid prior to the due date to ensure continuation of lessons.

A session’s tuition is due the day prior to the new session starting. Please refer to our Session Calendar for specific dates.

Tardy session payment will result in lessons being paused until payment is provided.

  • Students who decide to stop lessons in the middle of a session are still responsible for the full payment of the session.

  • Missed lessons and remaining lessons in the session do not qualify for a refund.

  • Session tuition does not cover any materials.

  • A $25 materials fee may be applied upon starting lessons.

  • The cost of any additional materials after starting lessons will be applied on the next invoice(s).

Trial Private Lessons

  • Trial private lessons are for when a student would like to try a lesson without the full commitment to a session.

  • Trial private lessons are paid, full lessons, for 30, 45, or 60-minutes.

  • Payment must be provided prior to the trial lesson for the lesson to occur.

  • If a student chooses to continue with a teacher following a trial lesson, the student will be billed for the full remainder of lessons in the session.



  • A consultation is a free-of-charge, 15-minute meeting between student, family, and teacher.

  • Consultations are for a student to meet a teacher, for a teacher to learn of the student’s goals, and to see if the student and teacher are an appropriate match for each other.

  • Teachers are not obligated to give consultations and will be contacted first before scheduling a consultation.
