Policies and Fees


The Breth Studio welcomes any student who loves music enough to devote the time and energy necessary to reach one’s highest capabilities.

  • An audition/interview is required, with a fee of $40.
  • If the student joins the studio, the audition fee is deducted from the tuition.

Tuition & Fees 2018-19

Annual tuition covers:

  • 36 lessons (including at least four lessons in the summer)
  • 10 group performance classes
  • 2 studio recitals

Tuition rates are as follows:

Lesson length Annual rate Trimester rate
60 minutes $4,450 $1,485
75 minutes $5,485 $1,825
90 minutes $6,520 $2,170

Payment schedule

  • Trimester tuition payments are due on July 1, November 1, and March 1.
  • Statements are issued 2 weeks before each due date. The July statement includes a $40 registration fee.
  • A $20 late payment fee is assessed if payment is more than 2 weeks overdue.
  • All tuition payments are non-refundable unless lessons are terminated by me.

Single Lesson Fee

(Available only to adult students or for consultations) $115 per hour

Missed Lessons

  • No makeups unless I miss a lesson or in the case of school closure due to severe weather.
  • If a family takes a vacation outside of the school holidays, missed lessons are forfeited. This rule does not apply to summer lessons: that schedule is flexible enough to allow changes.
  • Lesson swaps may be arranged through the Student Portal.

Parental Involvement

I expect parents of young children to observe most or all lessons, and to help children practice at home. Lesson observation should be discontinued by the student’s 9th-grade year, if not earlier.

Scholarship Assistance

Please inquire if scholarship aid is needed.
