 Music Instruction Plans, Tuition Rates & Policies

Our normal Instructional Plan is based on Twelve Months. Music educators know that it normally takes a minimum of two months for a student to really begin to enjoy and appreciate what they have learned in a music class. Based on this premise, you agree to a minimum of two months under the Twelve Month Program without withdrawal. You may withdraw from the program after your initial two months if desired by submitting a written notice to The Source 30 days in advance of your withdrawal.

 Tuition Plans:

          The Quarterly: The quarterly plan is a special discount program covering 12 weeks. This plan is discounted off the basic one hour lesson rate by 5% when paid quarterly in two equal installments; 10% when paid quarterly in  advance; 15% when paying two quarters in advance; 20% when paying annually in advance.

           The Monthly: The monthly plan is our basic program. This program is available in one hour and 1/2 hour lessons and is payable every four weeks in advance.

            The Daily: The weekly plan is designed for those who  need to be able to pay as they come. The rate schedule for  this plan is the  most expensive and has the following restrictions.
