Tuition & Policies
Monthly tuition is posted to accounts and email statements are delivered at the beginning of each month. Payment is due on the first lesson of the month or by the 10th of each month. Late fees ($5) will apply to all accounts where payment has not been received by the 10th of the month. This is an automatic fee, managed by our online accountant, that cannot be reversed. Accounts with balances on the 11th will receive a mailed statement with late fees posted. We accept cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. Returned checks are subject to a $10 NSF charge and the late fee. There are no refunds, credits, or extensions of tuition. A student may be denied class if tuition is not paid.
