Payment is broken down into 9 monthly payments for 35 weeks of lessons (Fall, Winter, and Spring breaks are factored in), and rounded down to the nearest $10. Thus, the monthly rate for 45-minute lessons is always $480 per month regardless of whether the month has 4 or 5 weeks of instruction. For comparison, weekly payments of $125 for a 45 minute Tuesday lesson would be $500 for a month with 4 Tuesdays or $625 for a month with 5 Tuesdays.

Payment is always due on the 1st day of every month, starting September 1st, with a $25 late fee added on the 7th day of the month. The last payment is due on May 1st.

Annual Registration

There is an annual registration fee of $50 due in September of each year. This fee covers the cost of additional items needed for lessons such as sheet music, accompaniment tracks, and other miscellaneous supplies (e.g., corks, straws, masks, etc.).

Recital Fee

The studio recital is an exciting time of year when students and parents can see how each child has grown as a vocalist and actor over the course of the year, as well as enjoy the performances of their friends who also take lessons. Due in April, the recital fee is $35 and covers the cost of the venue, sound technician, and professional videographer who provides us with wonderful quality DVDs, BluRay, or digital copies of the recital concert. Recital admission is free to the public.
