Tuition and Policies 2022-23
(rates and policies remain the same as 2021-22)
Each school year consists of 32 weeks of regular lessons plus two weeks (one in January, one in June) reserved for make-up lessons. There will be one fall and one spring studio recital and one or more outreach concert opportunities per year.
Group lessons, play-ins, and outreach concerts are all included in tuition.
Chamber music classes, when available, (generally middle school and up) may be an additional charge or may be accomadated within students' lessons. Please talk to your teacher about getting into a chamber group!
Students will be asked to cover the cost of the accompanist fee for recitals, payable directly to the accompanist at your recital rehearsal. Fees depend on the amount of time used for your rehearsal and generally would be $10-30 depending on the rehearsal length for your specific needs. Thank you for helping us make sure that your student has enough time to practice with accompaniment and that we can pay our professional accompanists at a fair rate. Occasionally families may be asked to contribute a small facilites fee depending on the availability of venues.
To simplify billing for both parents and teachers you may choose to pay twice per year, in September and January. Alternatively, you may pay 5 times per year, in September, November, January, March and May.
Please note that tuition rates will increase every 1-2 years to adjust for inflation.
