Piano Program ~ Membership Subscription
Tuition Fees ~ 2022 ~ 2023
Piano tuition fees are paid through a Membership Subscription, rather than per lesson. Tuition is in equal monthly payments, regardless of the number of weeks in the month, holidays (which have been accounted for in tuition fees), or number of lessons attended. There are five designated Flex Weeks (please see Policies page).
Tuition fees include lesson time, core (lesson) books, one supplementary book per year, membership in Supersonicspiano.com (sheet music, audio, and interactive website), studio materials, incentives, access to music lending library, recital expenses, administrative and miscellaneous services, and credit card or ACH fees, and holds the student’s lesson time. Tuition does not include audio or sheet music downloads or lost book replacements.
Monthly tuition fees (for one or more students per family):
30-minute weekly lessons: $125/month 45-minute weekly lessons: $180/month 60-minute weekly lessons: $240/month Each additional 15 minutes weekly: add $60/month
A la carte (single) lessons - Students who are not members of the annual piano program. 30 Minute lesson - $35.00 45 Minute lesson - $45.00 Includes lessons only.
TUITION FEE PAYMENTS
Tuition fees are payable by automatic monthly payments via your credit card or checking or savings account. Payments are handled on Fons.com, a secure platform which uses the Stripe processor. Students log on to Fons and enter their payment information. Payments are withdrawn on the 15th of each month prior to the month they are applied to. For example, an August 15th payment is for September, a Sept. 15th payment is for October, etc. This will continue until either teacher or student discontinues the subscription. (Note: Students may begin taking lessons at any time. If starting mid-month, tuition will be prorated.) A la carte lessons are paid on Fons, by check, or by cash.
LATE FEE/BOUNCED CHECK FEE: $25 (if payment is more than 2 weeks late)
Enrolling your child in music lessons is an investment in your child’s education. Consistency is the key to progress. There are no refunds or credits for lessons missed by the student, but every effort is made to maximize your investment. Students who take lessons continuously will have first choice of lesson times, while those who pause their subscription may be placed on a waiting list. One month’s paid notice is required when discontinuing lessons. By paying tuition, you acknowledge that you have read and agree to the studio policies and understand that they are subject to change every September.
