Tution Payment

A flat-rate tuition payment is due the last music lesson of each month (see rates below) in advance for the next month. Payment secures a weekly reserved lesson slot. Payment is not a per-lesson fee. No credits, discounts, or refunds will be accepted. If your bank offers automatic check mailing services (online bill payment) it is recommended you schedule payment mailing for the 25th of each month.

Pay As You Go Music Lesson Rates

Students who are unable to pay monthly or schedule a recurring weekly time slot may participate in pay as you go. It is the responsibility of the student to schedule lessons with the teacher on a weekly basis. This form of scheduling does not guarantee a weekly lesson slot.

  • 30 minutes: $32 per lesson
  • 45 minutes: $48 per lesson
  • 60 minutes: $64 per lesson

Late Payment

Payments received on or after the 1st calendar day of the month are considered late.

If no payment is received by the 7th calendar day of the month, the slot will be made available to waiting or new students. Consistent late payment or unpaid late fees may result in termination of services.


An excused absence includes the following criteria:

  • Call or email 24 hours before the lesson except in cases of Illness/flu and family emergencies.
  • Lessons may be rescheduled by appointment (see Makeup Lessons below).
  • A non emergency absence without sufficient notice may not be rescheduled.
  • Hand/arm injuries (all ages) – Lessons will consist of valuable and relevant music theory and harmony until the student is physically capable of playing the guitar. Please do not request payment credits, refunds, or a hold on your lesson time due to injuries.
  • It is assumed that a student absent for 2 consecutive lessons without email/phone communication has discontinued lessons and the slot will be made available to waiting or new students.
