The tuition for each semester of 15 weeks (Fall or Spring) is: 1) One full payment of $560, OR 2) Two payments of $285. This option is for any teenage student whom the Piano Preparatory faculty is unable to match with a lesson partner, or for students who work best in a private lesson setting.
An additional tuition of $300 will be required for students who request to study with the Program Director. (Please discuss this option in advance with the Program Director.)
Because a teacher must reserve a time slot for a student for the entire semester when a student is assigned, once a semester has begun, there will be no refund of tuition already paid.
Many learning activities are planned for each lesson. Therefore, all lessons will begin promptly at the scheduled time. If an absence is absolutely unavoidable, please notify directly your child’s private or group teacher in advance.
It is our policy that group class absences cannot be made up. If your child should miss a group class due to illness, please call. An assignment sheet for the missed class will be mailed to you. It is university policy that classes and lessons that fall on the holidays will not be made up.
Private lessons missed due to severe illness or emergency may be rescheduled pending the private teacher’s schedule and if the private teacher is notified in advance. In the event that a lesson or class is cancelled by the instructor, it will be rescheduled.
Due to the teaching schedule, students who arrive late for a private lesson will only receive the remaining portion of the lesson.
