Examples of the Discount System

Any student taking private lessons is eligible for discounts on unit-bearing classes and ensembles. The more units an individual student takes, the high the discount for each unit up to six units. After the sixth unit, every additional unit is free.

Example 1

Any lesson-taker who also takes two 3-unit offerings (valued at $414) or a 3-unit and a 4-unit offering (valued at $483) or two 4-unit offerings (valued at $552) will be charged only $365 above the cost of their lessons. Additionally this student may take any number of additional classes or ensembles at NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE.

Example 2

A student who takes private lessons, Youth String Orchestra (3-units) and Beginning guitar (2-units) would add the total number of units in all classes and ensembles for a total of 5 units. The discounted tuition on the chart for 5 units is $308. That would be the total charge for both Youth String Orchestra and Beginning Guitar combined per semester above the cost of their lessons. Note: This student may take any number of additional classes or ensembles for a cost of only $57.

Example 3

A student who takes private lessons and Music Theory (four units — valued at $272) would be billed the reduced rate of $249 above the cost of their lessons.

Example 4

A student who takes private lessons and Jazz Performance Workshop (3 units — valued at $207) would be billed the reduced rate of $189 above the cost of their lessons.
