Innovative Piano Studio, LLC is a year round school. Our yearly calendar begins at the beginning of September and ends at the end of August of the following year. Your annual tuition is broken into 12 equal payments that are due by the 25th of the month prior. Innovative Piano provides private music lessons for 44 out of the 52 weeks per year, with an average of 4 lessons per month. Tuition for the first month of lessons must be paid in advance for new and returning students. After the first payment, tuition is due in full by the 25th of the prior month. If paid after this date , there will be a $30.00 late fee billed to your account. There is a monthly $60.00 travel fee for lessons done within Greenville County but not at IPS. Invoices are emailed on the 10th of each month. Tuition reserves your lesson day and lesson time. You may choose to pay equal monthly installments or you may choose to for the entire year up front. Students paying for the entire year of lessons will receive a 5% discount. Should something come up where you cannot financially fulfill your commitment to your lessons, advanced notice and open, ongoing communication is appreciated and encouraged!
Lesson books and material is included in your tuition. If lost/stolen then student’s parent will be invoiced for the second set of books and/or material. I have the right to suspend lesson if payment is not received by the end of the month and your lesson slot will be forfeited. I will be accepting cash, debit or credit card as methods of payment for tuition through the invoice that’s emailed, Zelle, and Venmo. There is also a recital fee due on October 25th of $30.00 for the Christmas Recital and a recital fee of $30.00 due April 25th for Spring Recital. You will be notified of any additional cost for special projects ( i.e.concerts, recitals, materials , etc ). No refunds will be made for early withdrawal. All tuition and fees are non-refundable.
IPS also offers Flex Piano Lessons for those who are not able to commit to a weekly lesson. Flex piano requires a minimum of 30 minutes that is required in order to schedule a flex piano lesson, and payment is due 48 hours prior to your scheduled lesson. If your lesson is not paid in full, then the lesson will be canceled.
