Registration

A non-refundable registration fee of $50 will be applied at the time of enrollment.  The text used in the Parent Orientation course will be provided, but each family is responsible for acquiring their own repertoire (Suzuki and O'Connor Method) books.  

Tuition Schedule (updated May 2016)

Tuition includes two lessons each week: one individual lesson (Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday) and one group lesson (Saturday).  Breathe Suzuki Studio operates year-round.  There are 43 instructional weeks per year (including 7 weeks during the summer).  Yearly tuition is averaged into twelve equal monthly payments.  Each month's tuition also includes $19 in monthly fees, but fees are applied only once per family.  Fees are applied toward administrative time and costs, recital expenses, supplies, and professional development.

Grandfather Clause

Families who are enrolled continuously year to year (including summer lessons) will retain their original tuition rates.  Increases in tuition rates will apply only to beginning families or families who do not attend summer lessons.

Discontinuing Lessons

Kindly give 4-8 weeks notice when planning to discontinue lessons, so that your final month of lessons is an even-numbered month (February, April, June, August, October, or December).  Since the numbers of lessons per month varies, this ensures that I have been paid for all of the lessons you received.   It also allows me time to reach closure with the student.
