Students who contribute to the life of this studio
are very much appreciated. You make it possible for Ms.
Cynthia to create a community of Musical Parenting and Musical Peers and
Mentors for the musicians in your family.
You also support a teacher who has a commitment to
giving back to the Orange County community by providing instruction for
under-served children who would not otherwise have access to a Suzuki
Teacher with training from Dr. Suzuki. Your enthusiasm and
support for the TEC program is very much appreciated by many more than you realize.
Tuition is due at the lesson when the lesson is
Payment by cash or check can be accepted in person.
Pay-pal can be used by on line students who are
non-members. In this case payment must be received 2 days
before the scheduled lesson.
Membership in the studio is based on year round participation with
out a break in tuition payment. New students are asked to pay an
Initial Registration Fee depending on their level of instruction.
If a student chooses to end their membership and regular
study by not paying tuition for any length of time they will need to pay
the Initial Registration again to reinstate themselves at a Book or age
appropriate Membership Level.
Tuition is due one week before the start of every 12 week session
Please see the Tuition Calendar. Four 12 week session or
quarters are marked on the calendar as Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall.
There are 4 weeks of official break when the studio is closed.
They coincide with Winter break, Spring Break and one Summer
Break. All other absences can be made up during times when
the studio is open.
Students who can not afford to pay in one lump sum at the beginning
of each quarter may pay in 3 installments which are marked on the
Calendar with A, B and C. They are due one week before instruction
starts. Please mark these on your check so that Ms. Cynthia knows
which 4 weeks you are paying for.
Ms. Cynthia will prorate the tuition for students who are starting in
the middle of these tuition schedules. This means that your
tuition for that period will be less than the regularly scheduled
tuition due on normally scheduled weeks.
Students are expected to keep track of their lesson
availability. If you need to make changes in your schedule please
contact Ms. Cynthia at least one week or lesson ahead of time.
Please see Studio Policies for more details.
Keeping a steady lesson schedule promotes progress.
There are times when everyone needs to do a Make Up Lesson. Please
be considerate of others in the studio by letting Ms. Cynthia know of
your schedule changes as early as possible. It is confusing for
all concerned when schedules are constantly changing. Plan
carefully before making schedule changes or changing your Lesson Time
