Tuition, Fees, and Costs of Private Piano Instruction

Three payment plans - by the week, the month, or the semester - are available and are outlined below. Please note the major difference between plans deals with make-up/missed lesson policies.

I charge a one-time registration fee of $35.00 per student, regardless of payment plan, which reserves your preferred lesson time for two weeks. After that period of time passes and you have not yet begun lessons, I can no longer guarantee your preferred time, and the fee is forfeited. You can print a registration form to include with your fee by clicking here and printing.

Two make-up lessons are allowed per semester (Plan I and Plan II) and must be made up before the end of the semester (no carryover, no credits, no refunds). Make-up lessons are held on Saturday evenings from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. only. Depending upon demand, I do not guarantee that there will be adequate time available in the semester for a private make-up, and there is always the possibility, however slim, that the lesson will be forfeited. Lessons missed without notice or with last-minute notice are not eligible for rescheduling, and no refunds are given.  Again, no-shows = forfeited lesson.  This is standard practice because your lesson time is held for YOU and no one else; it is the student's perogative to use or not use that time.  If scheduling conflicts arise repeatedly, it may be necessary to change to Plan III or risk forfeiture of lessons or dismissal at the end of the semester. If the make-up policies under Plan I or Plan II are not acceptable to you, consider Plan III for ultimate flexibility. Again, in summary:

No refunds/credits are given for early withdrawal.

I accept cash, checks, online payments through Paypal, and face-to-face card-present payment through PayPal.  Payment is due at the first lesson of the term, first lesson of the month, or at the start of the individual lesson. Lessons not paid according to this schedule are considered late and no further instruction will be given until tuition is paid in full. No exceptions.

Music and materials are not included in the below costs.

Plan I - Paid by the semester at the first lesson.

Plan II - Paid Monthly at the first lesson of the month

Plan III - Pay as you go
