Payment can be made at the kiosk located on 2nd street or in the center lot. There is non-metered parking by Memorial Park. Another parking lot is located off of Broad Street.
Please visit Oxford Borough for more information on public parking.
The Oxford Arts Alliance is a registered 501 c(3) non-profit organization that creates an environment for working artists and musicians to teach in Oxford, PA. Students in our academies pay a monthly subscription of $96 and receive 30-minute music lessons or 60-minute art lessons* once a week.
Holidays including Thanksgiving, Christmas/Winter Break, New Years Eve/New Years Day, Easter/Spring Break, Independence Day, Vacation, and one absence due to illness are all calculated into the cost of tuition. Please see our hours for the organization's closure schedule, but students of our academy must discuss closures with their individual instructor about other holiday-related absences that may occur.
Students will receive an invoice in their email on the 1st day of each month for that month’s tuition.
*Students interested in 60-minute music lessons pay a tuition of $192 per month.
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. Speak with your instructor about the best way to contact them in the event of a cancellation. 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. Please speak to your instructor about their availability for makeup lessons. 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 end of the month. Please notify both your instructor and the OxAA Staff (email@example.com) if you are discontinuing lessons.
If under 18 years old, a parent or guardian must be in attendance for the entirety of the lesson. If students are 15 – 17 years old, a waiver form may be signed to allow students to attend lessons without parental accompaniment.
Music and art lessons are exclusively for OxAA members only. Student memberships are $15 a year. Click the registration link on either the music or art page to get started with lessons and you will automatically be enrolled in our membership program.
