PRIVATE LESSON REGISTRATION AND TUITION PAYMENT
The yearly cost for instrument lessons for the 2021-2022 school year is $1008, plus a $30 non-refundable registration fee. This fee is based on 30 lessons throughout the year at $33.60/ lesson. The yearly fee may be paid in full, by trimester, or it can be divided into nine equal payments of $112/month starting in September through May. The registration fee and the first month’s tuition are due with this contract. The remaining eight payments will be applied to your monthly tuition bill starting on October 1st. All monthly payments must be made via automatic checking withdrawal. If you are already setup for monthly auto-debit withdrawals for tuition, check the Monthly-Automated Debit line below and sign this form to approve the new withdrawal amount. If you are not set up on auto-debit you can sign up by contacting the finance office at 626 914-1849 x1161 or at email@example.com. Lessons begin the week of August 30th, 2021. Registration deadline is August 23.
Students are considered enrolled by this contract for the entire year. If a student withdraws for any reason, the charges are pro-rated on a trimester basis. The school will not require payment for the entire year, but parents must pay for the entire trimester in which the child is enrolled. All withdrawals must be made in writing and shall be effective at the end of the trimester. Please contact the finance office if you have any questions regarding payments.
Lesson times are scheduled by the private lesson teacher. Once the student is registered, your assigned lesson teacher will contact you to schedule a weekly lesson time. Please email Aimee Knight (firstname.lastname@example.org) for questions about orchestra lesson scheduling or Doris Kohler (email@example.com) for questions about piano lesson scheduling.
