Tuition is based on the 10-month school year. For your ease of budgeting, I will accept equal monthly payments from September to June.
Your tuition includes, but is not limited to, thirty-three (33) weeks of lessons in 2020-2021 beginning September 8, 2020. I will continue to use the same structure that I have used in the past, that being paying the same amount for lessons each month. This structure makes it much easier for you to budget each month and it will help free up time and energy for both you and I since we will not have to wonder how much lessons are each month.
Families should expect a yearly tuition increase appropriate to cost of living increases, expenses, and services offered.
Monthly tuition is due on the first lesson of each month. If you are unable to attend your first lesson, the tuition should be dropped off at the studio or sent by mail to the studio, to arrive the first week of the month. Studio address is: 2732 127th PL SE Bellevue, WA 98005
If tuition is not paid at the first lesson, a $20.00 charge will be added for every week tuition is late. Some parents find it easier to do an automatic payment, directly from their checking account, and sent to the studio address, or to use Paypal, Zelle or Venmo for electronic payments. I highly recommend this process for payment, since you know exactly how much tuition is every month.
If a student chooses to discontinue lessons, a one-month notice must be given, and tuition must be paid for that month. This allows me time to try and fill that day and time slot with another student without the loss of income.
Summer Lessons I offer an abbreviated summer schedule in July and August and it’s pretty flexible. The important thing to know is that in order to be able to sign up for lessons the following September, a student must sign up for some summer lessons.
