New Tuition Payment Policy – beginning Fall 2017

We ask for tuition to be paid on the first day of each month. It is fine to pay by personal check or automated bank –generated checks. Please provide 9 post-dated checks at your first lesson of the year, or set-up bank checks to send payment at the same day of the first week of each month. You may also pay for the entire year upfront, or two equal payments, one due a the start of each semester. Please see attached Tuition Schedule for specific amounts.

Because we are attempting to streamline tuition payment for you by having nine equal payments, we ask you please to understand that tuition is NON-REFUNDABLE and we expect a commitment to regular weekly lessons for the entire academic year. We will not be able to accommodate financially, sudden withdrawal from lessons because of sports or theatre events . We ask you to understand this, and know that if you need to reschedule your day/time for a short period, please ask us to provide you with a current roster of names/phone numbers as well as days/times of lessons.

Addition of Administrative Fee:

We are adding a $45 Administrative Fee to each student's tuition per year to help us with copying costs, professional fees, liability insurance and travel costs to book recitals. This fee will also include but not be limited to, one year of SAU Membership Fees so that our students can participate in all SAU Cello Events. Please be sure to renew your SAU fees through our studio rather than another SAU teacher. The Administrative Fee is not limited to SAU fees – it also will cover the cost of registering for the annual Cello Federation (held at the U of U Gardner Hall, this spring on Sat. March 24, 2018). We hope that this new fee will streamline things for us and for you.

Late Tuition Penalty:

If you do not pay your tuition within 10 days of the 1st day of the month, there will be a Late Fee of $30 added to the Tuition Amount due.
