Conditions of Lesson Registration
Durham School of Music's regular school year is from September to June. Summer session runs through July and August.
A four week deposit is to be paid at the time of registration along with the current month's payment in which the student's lessons begin.
The fee for a private class is $24 per 1/2 hour and $29 for semi-private.
Fees are to be paid on the first class of each month.
Fees are charged regardless of attendance.
Make up lessons are never given for missed lessons. However, check the Option Payment link below for details regarding prepaid options and their benefits.
If a student no longer wishes to be in our schedule a three week notice is required and the deposit payment will be used to close the account.
