Private Lesson Policies

2024-2025 SCHOOL YEAR begins August 26, 2024 and ends June 5, 2025. There will be a recital performance on Saturday, May 31, 2025. The recital fee is $40 per student and will be added to your annual tuition. This fee covers instrument rental and time for the teachers and technicians who make the recital possible and is for everyone who is a part of the music program, even if not performing.

REGISTRATION FEE is $35.00 per student for the year (Maximum of $105 per family). Register at cavod.org.

PAYMENTS: Students pay a set annual amount which reserves their lesson time. Payments can be broken down into equal monthly installments for your convenience. Payments are not calculated per lesson – the annual fee is reserving your time slot in the teacher’s schedule. Therefore, no credits or refunds will be given.

  Tuition Recital Fee Total Annual amount Annual payment with 5% Discount if paid by Aug 15 2 Bi-Annual payments with 3% Discount if paid by Aug 15 and Feb 1 10 Monthly installments

Payment is due on the first of each month.  After the 10th day if not paid, a $20 late fee will be applied. Cavod reserves the right to charge your card automatically if payment is not made by the 10th of the month. It is your responsibility to call the office to update any credit card information. There is a $20 declined card fee for declined cards set to autopay.

YOUR LESSON TIME is reserved for you every week, whether you use it or not. Virtual lessons are an option if the student is not feeling well.

MISSED LESSONS: If the teacher or Cavod must cancel a lesson, a make-up opportunity will be offered. If the student cancels, a maximum of two lessons for the year are eligible for a make-up opportunity at the family’s request, dependent on teacher availability. If the student can’t attend the make-up opportunity, the lessons are forfeited. All cancellations must be communicated through the office.

DROPPING LESSONS: If you must drop lessons, a 30-day written notice to info@cavod.org is required. You will still be responsible for payment through the 30-day period if you are paying monthly. No refunds will be given for tuition already paid.

PRACTICE:  Please treat practicing like other homework. Learning new skills is best served through consistency! Remember this is a training process that is built by consistent effort over time. Unprepared lessons cost the same as prepared ones, but their value is substantially compromised.
