Financial costs are split into the one-time Registration Fee, which pays for materials and initial costs, and the monthly tuition fee. All fees are paid (by cheque or e-Transfer) to Heather Lynn Smith.
Registration Fee varies by level but averages about $300. You can find the exact amount on the Registration Forms.
Monthly Tuition is paid from September through May . This varies from $70-$85 by level based on the amount of private lesson time allotted. For Tuition payments, post dated cheques for the year (9 cheques) tend to be most convenient for everyone.
The real cost: Your time
Besides financial cost, there is an investment of time by both parent and child. A parent attends class each week with their child. Both parents are encouraged to spend time with their child reviewing material at home. Practice time is a lot more fun together and offers parents the opportunity to learn the material as well as enjoy and share in children’s successes. Families are expected to have a piano or keyboard at home for practicing.
