Lesson Fees

and Payment Methods

Lesson Fees

Beginners typically start with a 30 minute lesson slot at the same time each week while more advanced students have longer lesson times.

A non-refundable $35 Family Administrative Fee is due once a lesson time or program has been confirmed. This is charged in addition to tuition and is paid only once annually by each family.

The table below shows MONTHLY equalized fees from September-June. This means fees are based on the number of lessons offered for your lesson day, averaged throughout the entire school year (10 months from September-June).

Payment Methods

In order to pay for your lessons, you must have first registered as a student and received a confirmed lesson slot (duration and day of the week). In order to hold a spot before arranging for full payment, please pay the Family Administrative Fee once your lesson time is confirmed. Otherwise please add the Administrative Fee to your first payment. You may pay using:

1. Credit Card/Online Payment

You may enjoy the convenience of paying by credit card if you choose to pay 1 full annual payment or set up smaller recurring payments (by term or by month). Registered students can log in to this website to make a secure online payment.

  • There is a $20 fee for credit cards that have been declined.
