Tuition

2014–15 Fall & Spring Tuition Rates:
(13 lessons in the fall + 15 in the spring = 28)

The Best-fit Lesson Plan will also be a best-progress lesson plan if the student is registered for the total 28 lessons offered in spring and fall. Students will see continuous, steady progress in their music plus you will save $15 by not having to pay a spring registration fee.

Once registered, tuition may be paid by credit card online or by mailing or dropping off a check. Payments may be made in full or in monthly installments for an additional $20 fee (per family per semester except for full year registrations). Monthly invoices will be sent by e-mail. 

Checks can be placed in the drop box located outside the Academy office or mailed to:
