The piano music school year runs from September through June. The tuition is based on the piano
music school year and length of the private piano lesson. It is divided by 10 months with ten equal
payments and is payable the first week of each month. Students who sign up for piano lessons are
expected to complete the year and tuition is due for the entire piano music school year regardless of
the student's attendance.

- Musicianship Class expenses.

- Teacher's time for preparation of lessons (assignments, music purchasing, etc.).
- Studio Operating Expenses.
- Planning for events and required volunteer time of the teacher to the organization.
- Extra rehearsals and lessons that may be needed for events and recitals.
- Computer repair and piano tuning.
- Access to Computer Lab.
A registration and book deposit fee are required each year to help cover the following expenses:

- Materials for lessons and musicianship classes.
- Recital expenses and awards.
