TUITION Tuition fees charged automatically on the 20th of the month for the upcoming month.  Special arrangements are available to make payments at a different day of the month.

Make payments to Kimberly Steele Music, Inc.  When you begin lessons after your free interview, you will have the option of setting up monthly payments that will be auto-billed to your credit or debit card OR via PayPal.  You may also write checks to Kimberly Steele Music, Inc.

HOLIDAYS AND VACATIONS No lessons occur on the following holidays: District 203 Spring Break, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Independence Day, Halloween (Oct. 31), Thanksgiving weekend, District 203 Winter Break, Martin Luther King Day, and Presidents Day.

ATTENDANCE Lessons continue over the summer.  Musical instruction is most effective when it is consistent. Your tuition payment rents time with your teacher for you exclusively, and that time remains reserved for you whether you choose to attend your lesson or not.

TEACHER ABSENCES If your teacher must cancel and cannot make up the time, your tuition will be discounted for a percentage of the upcoming month equal to the percentage of lessons missed.

MAKE-UP LESSONS  Make-up lessons are handled between you and your teacher.

CANCELLATION Please try to give notice of absence at least 24 hours prior to absence or at least communicate with us if the absence has already happened.  If a student no-shows with zero communication more than twice, at the third absence, the student’s time will be freed for someone else.  If your teacher cancels, you will be credited on the next tuition invoice if the teacher was not able to make up the lesson.

RECITALS Two 100% optional Recitals per year are held at outside recital halls in Autumn and Spring.  Recitals have a $30 per student fee not including printed music.  Discounts given for siblings.

EXPECTATIONS Please try to arrive to lessons on time. Because of large volumes of students, we are unable to alter the schedule for late arrivals.

MATERIALS Please bring materials to every lesson, including:

  • a one-subject spiral notebook
  • Lesson materials designated by teacher
  • Recommended: music tote bag

PARKING Parking is available in the lots surrounding 625 E. Ogden Ave.
