The school year is divided into four terms for the purpose of tuition payments.
Tuition must be paid before the start of each term. It covers weekly private lesson and group classes.
Out of respect for the teachers’ time commitment, tuition is nonrefundable.
Tuition will be adjusted accordingly if lessons start during a term.
Fall Term August 19 — November 8
Winter Term November 11 — February 21
Spring Term February 24 — May 22
Summer Term June 1 — August 14
Thanksgiving Break November 25 — 29
Winter Break December 23 — January 6
Spring Break March 16 — 20

Enrollment for summer term is mandatory. Students are required to register for a minimum of 8 weeks of summer lessons.
Students may take extra lessons during a single week or schedule longer lessons throughout the summer to comply with this requirement.
We require all students to complete the enrollment form once a year.
Parents or guardians must verify or provide correct student information and sign the form, indicating that they understand and agree to our policies.
Please find the form here.
We do not offer make-up lessons when a student misses a lesson for any reason, including illness or prearranged vacation.
We also do not give credits or refunds when a student misses a lessons for any reason. In the event that a teacher misses a lesson, it will either be rescheduled at a time that is mutually convenient for the student and teacher, or we will credit your account.
Please read more about this policy here.
We reserve the right to photograph and video students for training and promotional purposes.
Because we offer Suzuki Teacher Training, it is common to have teachers attending training courses to observe our lessons as part of their course requirements.
We also have an open door policy, allowing local teachers to come observe lessons.
Group classes are an integral part of the Suzuki Method. We do not offer the option to “opt out”, and require all students to attend group classes.
There are no group classes scheduled during the Summer Term.
Summer tuition rates are the same as during the academic year.
In order to protect teacher and other students from contagious ilnesses, we request that students who have a fever, or who have had a fever within 24 hours, do not attend private lessons or group classes.
The same guidelines are suggested for students with nausea. Teachers reserve the right to not teach lessons for students who are ill, or appear to be suffering symptoms of the flu, colds, etc.
We admit students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.
We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of our educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and other school-administered programs.
We follow the Orange County Public Schools calendar, and will close whenever OCPS closes or cancels classes.
Open communication is a necessary part of any educational endeavor. We strongly encourage open communication between the student, parent, and teacher. If conflicts arise during the course of the school year, please inform us immediately.
During one of the last four weeks of the school year we hold parent conferences, without the student, in lieu of a lesson. This conference gives the parent and teacher a chance to revisit each others' vision for the child, and discuss the progress towards a shared vision.
Additional conference times may be scheduled if deemed necessary by either parent or teacher.
The development of your child is the essence of our work.
