Dana’s Music Studio 2013 Payment Plan

In the best interest of both the students and Dana’s Music Studio, a very consistent payment plan has been devised.  These simple adjustments below will bring consistency to our finances (both yours and mine). 

There are 52 weeks in a calendar year; however, there are 12 weeks the Studio is CLOSED due to holidays and vacation time leaving 40 lessons per year.  This means that some months would have 1 week of lessons while others would have 5.  Based on the hourly rate of $36 per hour ($18 per ½ hour), some months would cost you $36.00 X 2=$72 ($18 X 2=$36), however, other months could cost you $36 X 5=$180 ($18 X 5=$90). 

By multiplying the hourly rate by the number of lessons per year, and then dividing the total by 12, we can stretch the payments of 40 lessons over a 12 month (1 year) span giving us reduced and consistent monthly payments.  So whether the Studio is open for one, two, three, four, or five weeks on any given month, the payment is still the same. 

$120 monthly tuition for 1 hour lessons.

$60 monthly tuition for ½ hour lessons. 

Payments are due by the 1st lesson of each month.
