The fee for lessons is $80 per hour ($40 for 30 min., $60 for 45 min.). There is no charge for the first introductory lesson/meeting. Lesson fees are to be paid in advance, 1 month at a time. The lesson fee is due at the first lesson of each month. If you have to miss a lesson, you forfeit the lesson fee, unless a make-up lesson can be arranged during the same week. (This includes illness and trips taken outside of school vacations.) Regular lessons are not scheduled during school holidays, and these dates are announced in advance in the monthly newsletter.
Practicing is required at home, at least five days a week. Younger students will receive a written lesson assignment each week. Parents of very young students need to help during daily practice sessions.
