Tuition and Payment | Students have the option of paying tuition in one of the two following methods.  The tuition rates are shown in the table below:

(1)    In 10 equal monthly installments, September -June.  Payments are due on the 1st of each month in advance of lessons and will be invoiced.

(2)    Or, in two large, equal installments.  Payments are due August 1st and March 1st.

Scholarships: If your student is highly motivated, and your family cannot afford lessons, a few sliding-fee scholarship slots will be available each year. A scholarship agreement is based on what the family can afford, includes volunteer commitment, practice agreement and may include other conditions as negotiated between the teacher and family.

Alternative forms of payment: Bartering agreements are also possible to reduce the cash outlay for lessons. These agreements will be negotiated individually. Personal goods and services of various kinds are possibilities.

10 Monthly Payments

Payments may be mailed (postmarked by the 1st), paid by automatic transfer, via Pay-Pal, MasterCard, Visa, or by check or cash.

Summer Lessons: Summer lessons are encouraged, but optional, and are paid on a per lesson basis. 

Flexibility: If you miss a lesson for any reason, I will make every effort to re-schedule it during regular teaching hours. Regular lessons are important for continued progress and commitment, so lessons missed should be re-scheduled if at all possible.
