Frequently Asked Questions

Q? How do I register?


New families should contact the school at 937.426.6920 to discuss program information, tuition and scheduling. We offer secure online registration for currently enrolled families. 

Q? Do you offer discounts?


We offer a 5% discount for siblings enrolled in private lessons, students enrolled in multiple private lessons, or private lessons scheduled weekdays before 2 PM.

Q? What is your attendance policy?


Your lesson time is reserved exclusively for you for the duration of your package. Students are expected to attend lessons when scheduled. We guarantee one reschedule per session provided the school office receives 24-hour notice. Teachers are not obligated to reschedule if insufficient notice is given.

Q? What is your refund policy?


The PPS Semester Package includes weekly private lessons with enrollment on a “per session” basis. Tuition is paid in full at time of registration; a non-refundable registration fee of $10 is charged per session. If lessons are terminated before the completion of the second week of a session, the school will refund 75% of the tuition. We are unable to refund or credit tuition after two weeks.  

The PPS Annual Program is designed for students taking lessons mostly year-round. The package includes 44 instructional units, including 39 private lessons and 5 Squad meetings, scheduled August 24 through July 31, 2021. Enrollment in the Annual Package is a financial commitment for the full academic year through July 31, 2021. The program includes a free monthly installment plan.  Requests to change from the Member to the Semester Program must be submitted in writing before the completion of the fourth week of the academic year.  After the fourth week, we are unable to modify the program choice or credit tuition.     

A refund will be issued for Group Classes provided that a) the refund is requested at least 7 days prior to the start date and b) it does not reduce the participation level below the required minimum. A $25 administrative fee will be retained from group class refunds.

Q? Do you offer scholarships?


Scholarships are occasionally available based on need and talent. Consideration will be given to motivated students with financial need who devote a significant amount of time to their musical growth.
