Tuition is paid montly; always as a 4 week period, and is due by the 3rd of the month.

Three or five week months for any lesson day are all evened out during the year. This is indicated on everyone's printed schedule given at the start of the school year, or whenever a new student begins lessons at MBH.

The main Spring concert is counted as a lesson while any other performing opportunities during the year are simply extra time for the student's benefit.

Musician By Heart will take the same or close to the holiday time off during December and March that coincides with the Beaverton School district Winter and Spring breaks.    

The studio will be closed for these major holidays: New Year's Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, and Christmas, which includes the last week of Dec. The Studio is NOT closed for the other various holidays such as President’s Day, MLK day, school service days or the budget closures. Ask me if you are not sure about a particular day!

  • 2018 Christmas holiday break is Dec. 22 through New Year's.
  • 2018 Studio Spring Term ends: June 22nd.     
  • 2018 Summer: Schedule TBA ... and studio is at least closed the last week in June through July 4th or near weekend, and the last week in August.

    Tuition and cancellation policies.

    The month's tuition is a discounted fee. Students are receiving the equivalent of 4-5 free lessons per school year, or $200 to $300 discount depending upon their lesson length. Everyone receives this discount and in effect, missed ones are made up that way. You don't pay full single lesson fees, and I don't need to frequently adjust a full schedule. If you don't miss any, you still get the discounted fee. I also do not require 6 -10 months tuition in advance as do a few studios. It is month to month, which entirely benefits the student family. 

    Therefore, no make ups, fee reductions or extra time tacked on. Thank you!

    Lesson Fees (to review those differences.)

    You are paying in part, for the month’s scheduling that has been reserved for you. Hence, I will continue to charge a discounted monthly fee that more than accommodates the occasional missed lesson. 

    If I personally need to cancel, I will arrange lessons for the time lost whenever this is best for both parties. The discounted fee also makes up for the rare weather (ice, bad storm) type of cancellation.
  • Monthly lesson day or time changes: happy to accommodate - of course only if available. 
  • Payment: I accept cash, personal check or PayPal.   
  • All payments need to be in by the first lesson of any month that will occur by the 3rd of the month. May be paid at the last lesson of the previous month; dated for the first. Some first lessons are on the 4th or later of a month; payment is due before then.  

Auditions for MYS and PYP (youth orchestras) are generally scheduled several times a year. Students who are interested will be prepared for those and other audition opportunities.
