STUDENT PARTICIPATION IN MASTER CLASSES & COACHING BY
OTHER TEACHERS

I have asked several of my more serious, practicing students to play and be coached in
Master Classes and to take special coaching from visiting artists or teachers who
often judge state/national competitions.  This exposes them to different teaching
styles and furthers their musical education.  I sit in on the lessons and make notes so
we can work on the teacher's recommendations in future lessons.  

TUITION & PAYING ON TIME

My monthly tuition for one-half hour lessons is $84.00,  for 45 minute lessons -
$126.00 and one hour is $168.00.  

Your paying me the first week of the month lets me pay my bills on time.  This is
very important to me and I thank you.  

PRO-RATED MONTHLY TUITION

I take the lesson rate times the number of weeks I actually teach (36 not 52) and
divide that annualized number by 12 to obtain the monthly rate.  If I did not do that
one month you would pay $22 and another month you would pay $110 (for five
half-hour lessons.  I need to count on receiving a steady and on-going tuition to make
this a viable living.  

FOR EXAMPLE:  36 lessons * $42.00 = $1512 per year.  Then I divide $1512 by 12
months = $126.00 per month, which is what you are paying.
