How much do lessons cost?

Lesson prices can vary depending on several factors.  Fill out the registration form or call and we will give you a quote.

Is there an enrollment fee?

No, enrollment is free.

How long am I obligated for lessons?

Lessons are month-to-month and paid at the beginning of each month.  There is no obligation past one month.

What is needed to start lessons?

We do offer a military discount.  In support of our military and their families, we offer 1 free lesson (with enrollment).  We do not offer multi-student or multi-lesson discounts.  We are very fortunate to have the most amazing musicians and teachers at the studios.  They have limited availability and cannot offer that discount because of the limited times they have available for lessons.

When are lessons available?

Lessons are given throughout the entire year and can be started at any time.  The normal lesson hours are Monday through Friday 1:00-9:00pm and Saturdays 9:00am-4:00pm.  Lessons are available at times besides these but vary depending on the teacher.

What is the cancellation policy?

Cancellations should be made as far in advance as possible by informing the teacher or the studio.  No credits are given for cancellations.  A make-up lesson may be offered by Melodic Rhythms to the student if certain guidelines are met.  A minimum of one day notice is required to receive a make-up or rescheduled lesson.  In extreme circumstances, such as family emergency, illness, or hazardous weather conditions a four hour notice is acceptable.  Once a make-up lesson is deemed to be valid, the lesson must be within one week of the regularly scheduled lesson.  After this one week period, the make-up lesson is forfeited.  If cancellations/reschedules are deemed excessive by Melodic Rhythms, the offer or rescheduled lessons can be rescinded and no more will be offered.  In the event of a teacher cancellation, a make-up lesson will be given.  There are no make-ups or reschedules for no call, no show lessons.  Students that drop out are not entitled to a refund.

 

What payment methods are accepted?

Cash, check, and credit/debit cards are accepted at both locations.  Lessons are paid for on a montly basis, in advance.  The payment should be made on the last week of the month for the following month's lessons.  Lesson prices are the same for both the 4 week months and the 5 week months.  Bounced checks will be charged a $15 fee for each failed attempt.  The system of monthly payments is designed to guarantee the instructor a fair and steady wage  and to ensure the availability of a qualified instructor on a consistent basis.

What ages can start lessons?

Students can begin lessons at varying ages.  Violin, piano, and percussion lessons can begin as early as age 4 or 5.  Guitar lessons do not have a start age per se', but require dexterity from the student's hand and fingers to hold and press the strings.  Younger guitar students can begin on the ukulele to help ease this. 

Can I take more than 1 lesson a week?

Yes.  You are free to book as many lessons a week as you would like.  1 hour sessions are also available.

Do you offer any discounts?

We do offer a military discount.  In support of our military and their families, we offer 1 free lesson (with enrollment).  We do not offer multi-student or multi-lesson discounts.  We are very fortunate to have the most amazing musicians and teachers at the studios.  They have limited availability and cannot offer that discount because of the limited times they have available for lessons.

Do you buy used instruments?

Yes we do.  Bring it in and we'll be happy to take a look at it for you.
