Monthly Tuition
½ Hour Lesson ……………$225 (5 years old)
45 Minute Lesson………..$320 (6 through 12 years old)

Tuition is due at the first lesson day of the calendar month. There is a $30 late fee and $30 returned check fee. In the event that a fee is due, please add it directly to your check.

Lessons should be taken year round to maintain skill level and avoid “brain drain”. Summer lessons are more flexible and arranged according to your vacation plans. Tuition is paid monthly and charged “per lesson”.

48-Hour notice of cancellation by telephone only is required to be eligible for a make-up lesson. No exceptions. If you are late for your lesson you will have only the time remaining. I will wait for 15 minutes before leaving. If I am late you will have the entire lesson time. I offer a maximum of 2 make-up lessons to be taken by June 6, 2018. I am available by appointment Saturday afternoons and on some scheduled vacation days.

Once we have entered into an agreement and your lesson day/time has been set I will not be able to change your scheduled day or time until June 2, 2018. Please arrange any other sports or activities accordingly. Should you decide to suspend lessons for any reason before June 2, 2018 there is an early termination fee equivalent to two month’s tuition.

I will give you a copy (either by e-mail or hard copy) of the Studio Policy as explained herein. Please read carefully and keep for your records.

“My daughter now has the confidence to hear a song, print out the music on the computer, and play it on her own. If she has any problems she can always show Francesca.”
