Other Payment Options:

Pay Per Lesson (non-subscription)

  • $22.50 for one 30-minute lesson at our home-studio (used anytime)
  • $25 for one 30-minute lesson in your home (used anytime)
This picture explains the pricing option for the pay per lesson option. $25 for every 30-minute interval for in-home lessons, and $22.50 for studio.

If you buy one or any number of lessons at the Pay Per Lesson Price, you may save them or use them at anytime (as long as it fits in your instructor’s availability)

Monthly Flat Rate Subscription

In most cases, lessons are weekly which makes charging a flat monthly rate a little more complicated. For example, if your lesson day is on Monday, then in 2017, the months of Jan, May, July, and Oct, will have 5 lessons instead of the normal 4 lessons in a month. So to compensate for the occasional extra lesson, but still charge a flat monthly rate, the monthly price is a little higher than the 4-week lesson price. Lastly, there are a few more stipulations for refunded lessons with a monthly flat rate.

  • Charged on the same day every month
  • Same flat rate wether your lesson day gets 4 or 5 lessons that month
This picture explains the pricing option for paying for lessons with a flat monthly rate for studio lessons.

Any lessons that your teacher canceled and can't be made up, will qualify for a refund, but refunds for a 5-week month will go off how many lessons you got, not how many lessons you didn't get.

For example:

  • The following example prices are based on the flat monthly rate of $90 for a month of weekly 30-minute in-home lessons
    • 4-week month: miss one lesson and get refunded $20 because you missed one lesson valued at $20
    • 5-week month: miss one lesson and get refunded $10 because you got 4 lessons valued at $80

If none of the options we provided above are a good fit for you, just let us know, and we’ll create your own customized lesson payment plan!
