Tuition for September, 2016-May, 2017 is as follows, with rates based on 33 lessons a year. Tuition fees include extra materials, supplemental music, games, piano parties, and recitals.
30 minute lessons: $52 per month (or $208 for the fall, $260 for the spring)
45 minute lessons: $78 per month (or $312 for the fall, $390 for the spring)
60 minute lessons: $104 per month ($416 for the fall, $520 for the spring)
Summer session lessons (9 weeks) are $133 for 30 minute lessons and $198 for 45 minute lessons.
You may pay in one lump sum at the beginning of the session, or pay in monthly payments. Payments are due at the first lesson of month.
Are you curious why the studio charges tuition instead of allowing you to pay by the lesson? Much like taking ballet or karate classes, taking swimming lessons, or joining a soccer team, piano lessons require a financial commitment from you that is a flat rate for the amount of scheduled lessons in a session.
Additionally, your tuition dollars don’t just cover the 30, 45, or 60 minutes you are in lessons. Tuition includes materials (lessons sheets, folders, stickers, pencils, printing fees), resources (supplemental music, access to the music library, games), professional membership, recital preparation and production, studio rent, utilities, piano parties and more. If you have questions about why you are charged tuition instead of a per-lesson rate, please contact Rachel Potter.
