Billing and Tuition Policies

Payments can be made using Visa, MasterCard or direct debit from a checking or savings account. Payment cannot be made using cash or a personal check. All payments are processed by Music Business Solutions.  Lessons can be billed according to a quarterly or a monthly billing cycle.

Monthly payments are made on the 1st of the month. Quarterly payments are made on the first day of the first month of that quarter. Refunds, if applicable, will ONLY be applied to your next billing cycle.

Tuition increases each August. Tuition is pro-rated across the year, so your payment is the same whether it is a 5-lesson month, a 4-lesson month, or a 3-lesson month. Occasionally, there will be a time I must take off that is NOT figured into tuition; this will be treated as a lesson credit on your bill, and you will be notified at least a week prior.

Tuition Assumptions

Your tuition reserves you a weekly or bi-weekly time slot and membership within the studio. There will be no make-up lessons for last-minute cancellations made by students. Teacher cancellations will be made up. Please make note of the previously mentioned holidays so you can plan around the lessons that are already scheduled to be missed.
