Rather than paying per lesson, students pay a monthly subscription of $96 each month and receive a month of 30 minute lessons. Students interested in 60 minute lessons pay a tuition of $192 per month.

Tuition not only includes private lessons, but recitals and various performance opportunities throughout the year.

Students are asked to speak to their instructor directly in regards to make-up lessons and scheduling. All scheduling is done through your individual instructor.

Please notify your instructor at least 24 hours ahead of your lesson if you are not going to attend. Cancellations in less than 24 hours are not granted a reschedule or make-up lesson and are at the instructor’s discretion.

Individual refunds for lessons missed during the month are not available as they are already worked into the payment plan.

Lessons cancelled by an instructor, weather, or OxAA related events are eligible for make-ups.

Several instructors are available for Skype or FaceTime instruction. Please ask your instructor for more information.

Students are able to discontinue lessons at the beginning or ending of the month.
