Tuition and Payments

  • Our studio runs on a flat-rate monthly billing system based on 46 lessons in a year. This means that you pay the same amount each month regardless of how many lessons are in a month. Inquire below for current rates. 
  • Tuition is charged automatically by credit card on the first of each month.
  • If you start on any day other than the 1st of the month, your first payment will be prorated based on the number of weeks you attend for lessons in that month.
  • There is a one-time registration fee of $75.

Makeup Policy

Your lesson time is always reserved for you. Given scheduling constraints, we are unable to reschedule lessons, even if with advanced notice.

However, we completely understand that things inevitably come up. Here are the solutions for missed lessons that are fair to both our teachers and every family:

  • Option 1 (recommended): Pre-recorded, customized video lessons have become a VERY successful alternative to makeup lessons in the last year. If you have to miss but still want a lesson, your teacher can send you a pre-recorded lesson and assignment for the week.
  • Option 2: Though we don't reschedule lessons or schedule additional makeup times, you are welcome to utilize the lesson times that other students have canceled as makeup slots. If you would like to look for an open makeup slot during someone else's canceled time, you can log in to your student portal (email info@cultivatemusicstudio.com if you need the login info) and check the calendar. Any available time slots will be shown there, and you can schedule them at your convenience. There is no "statute of limitations" on this option - if you miss a lesson in May and you want to schedule an extra lesson in October, that is completely fine.

So, if you know you'll be missing a scheduled lesson for ANY reason (sickness, vacation, etc), you can do any of the following things:

  • request a video assignment to replace our in-person or online meeting time (no makeup credit issued)
  • request a makeup credit (to schedule a lesson during someone else's missed time at your convenience using the student portal), although there is no guarantee that you will get the makeup with this option
  • simply miss the lesson

    If your teacher needs to miss a lesson on a day other than our scheduled studio closures, they will reschedule the lesson with you.

Pausing Lessons

If you intend to pause classes for a month or longer, you can reach out to us before the end of the month and pause your payment starting the next month.

Please note that you will not be guaranteed the same lesson time after you return, as another student may fill it in your absence.

A re-registration fee of $35 will be charged after absences of a month or longer.

If you would like to guarantee the same time slot upon your return, you may continue your regular payments. In this case, we can provide alternative forms of lessons such as pre recorded videos or real-time virtual Zoom lessons, or we can simply skip the lessons but hold on to your spot.

Sick Policy

Our Covid-19 protocols include:

  • Medical-grade air filters that kills Covid-19 variants and other pathogens
  • Fully vaccinated staff
  • Frequent hand washing and equipment disinfection
  • Children and staff are screened for any signs of illness prior to entering class

Please do not bring your child to class if:

  • They are coughing
  • They have or have had any of the following symptoms within the past three (3) days: Fever/feverish, cough, shortness of breath, chills, night sweats, sore throat, aches, loss of taste or smell, headache, confusion, vomiting, or diarrhea.

Let's continue to keep everyone healthy and safe!
