Tuition and Lesson Policies
To help everyone have a great experience at our school, we have a few important policies. Payment is made by pre-authorized credit/debit cards, or by recurring bank account withdrawals on the first of each month. New students can start mid-month and tuition will be prorated for the first month. No other payments are prorated and there are no refunds for missed lessons.
Our school year calendar correlates with the HISD calendar. Fall lessons begin in late August and last until winter break in late December, with a week off for Thanksgiving. Lessons resume in early January and the school year ends at the end of May, with a week off for spring break. Check our school calendar for exact dates.
Summertime is flexible and contains ten lessons. Students have ten lessons to take at any time during the summer (June 1st through the third week of August). If you end up taking fewer than ten summer lessons, you will receive credit towards September tuition. There is an unscheduled two week summer break which students can coordinate with their teachers. Additional summer lessons can be added, and 24-hour advance notice is required to cancel a lesson.
Students also have the option to pause payments for summer. Contact us by May 15 with your request, and on June 1st, you will be charged September’s tuition. This will reserve a place in our school in the fall. This payment is non-refundable. Our school year begins at the end of August, and on September 1st you will be charged for one August lesson. We offer up to two make-up lessons each semester provided students give 24-hour advance notice.
Students can stop lessons at any time by notifying us in writing by the first day of your final month of lessons. The final month’s tuition is not prorated.
30-minute lessons - $174
45-minute lessons - $256
60-minute lessons - $338
