Lesson Fees:
Length      Annual (30 lessons)        30 x $20 = $600      Monthly Payment
30 min.     $600.00*   paid over 10 months Sept-June                $60.00

Length      Annual
(30 lessons)      30 X $30 = $900     Monthly Payment
45 min.     $900.00*    paid over 10 months Sept-June               $90.00                                         
The 45 minute fee is either for advanced students, or for beginners who wish
to have two 22.5 minute lessons a week.


All regular monthly payments should be $75.00 for the 30 minute lesson 
The number of lessons the student will receive will be multiplied by $20 and
then divided by $75.  I structure the payment installments so that every month after the first month of lessons will be $75, regardless of the number of lessons in the month.

For example, if lessons begin the week of October 5, the student will receive
26 lessons.  $20 x 27 lessons =$540.  $540.00 for the whole remaining term divided by $75.00 equals 7 full months of payments. Seven months times $75.00 equals $525.00.  $540.00 for the full term, minus the seven month's payments of $525.00 equals $15.00.  This amount is added to the initial payment of $75.00.  So the first payment would be $90.00 and all subsequent payments will be $75.00

There will be other fees throughout the term for things such as lesson materials, group lessons, recitals, and a Pennsylvania of Federation of Music Clubs annual Festivals, which is an opportunity for students to be evaluated by two teachers other than myself.  This is not a competition and students can earn certificates and work toward gold cups.

Parents are asked to sign an agreement that the child will continue for the full term. Students should be made to understand the commitment that is being made for the lessons and the cost that you are investing in them
