All lessons are $85.00 with a one time $10.00 enrollment fee, lessons are paid for whether the student attends lesson or is absent. You are only committed to the studio for one month at a time and lessons are on-going unless you choose to discontinue and notify the studio at the last lesson of the month. ***Tuition is due the first lesson of each month and a late fee of $15.00 is assessed automatically if not paid by the second lesson. You may discontinue at any time but there will be no refunds given.
If a student is absent for two consecutive weeks with no notification to studio, the student is taken off of the schedule automatically. The studio appreciates a courtesy call to the studio if student cannot make their lesson.
Due to the busy schedule of the studio, we cannot do make-up lessons but we do have a budget billing structure in place which means basically you pay the same monthly tuition of eighty-five dollars whether there are four or five weeks in the month, four months out of the year there are five weeks, so you receive four free lessons in a given year which can be used for any reason(illness, vacation, spring break.}
The monthly tuition is a budget billing fee which is the cost of lessons for twelve months, subtracting a total of six weeks(two weeks are students personal vacation, one week if lesson falls on a holiday and three weeks studio vacation), this total then divided by twelve. Students has some lessons that they can miss and they are not losing money due to months that have five lessons.
Holidays observed in the Studio are as follows: Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas and New Year’s Day.
Students that discontinue lessons which are ongoing unless otherwise specified and desire to restart lessons within a six month time time period after lesson termination will pay a reconnection fee of one month tuition pricing because the studio is year round and we pride ourselves on employing quality teachers.
The monthy tuition price includes providing music for Piano and Voice, Guitar books is the cost of the student and parent.
We give two major Recitals a year at the Steinway Piano Gallery and those fees will be announced as they are programmed by the studio. We do encourage all students to perform on recital as it gives them a goal to work towards and is a part of their musical lesson progress.
The St. Peters Performing Arts Studio reserves the right to discontinue any and all lessons for any student as is deemed necessary.
