Tuition Fees School Year 2020/2021
Instruction consists of weekly private piano, guitar, voice, and violin lessons in which repertoire, note reading, technique, practice skills, and musical literacy are emphasized. Lessons are 30, 45 or 60 minutes in length. Faster progress can be achieved if the students have the advantage of two or more lessons a week.
*The higher piano lessons rate is a Master Teacher rate that applies to the pupils of Yevgeniya Lepskaya’s only.
As long as a student remains enrolled in the individual lessons program, they will be responsible for the entire 40-week academic year course tuition. Students will receive their bills every eight weeks via email, which must be paid by the due date to avoid a $40 late fee. Please view the Tuition Fees Schedule by going to https://artofmusicschool.us/tuition-fees/. Pupils may withdraw from lessons upon the completion of a single billing cycle. If you choose to withdraw from enrollment during the school year, your $65 deposit will not be refunded. You will not be responsible for any tuition payments once you terminate lessons, and your spot on Lepskaya’s School schedule will be forfeited.

We want each student to experience the excitement of progress from a week to week-the key to that is consistent practice and consistent attendance. The school’s missed lessons policy requires that you give your instructor a notice by 10 pm before your scheduled session. Once the instructor receives such a notification, the student’s absence will be marked excused. Three excused absences for students taking one lesson a week and six excused absences for students taking two lessons a week are allowed during the entire school year. Any more lessons missed by a student will not be made up or credited.
Students can make up missed classes during the three makeup session at the end of the school year. If a student cannot attend the makeup classes, those lessons will be forfeited.
Additional makeup dates will be available for missed lessons that fall on a holiday or canceled by the instructor.
***As a courtesy to our students enrolled in CPS, or other schools outside of School District 64, which follow a different school calendar, we will provide additional makeup dates based on a student’s and an instructor’s availability if a student must miss classes the first week, Monday, August 24-Saturday August 29, of the academic school year 2020/2021.
