  1. A $30 non-refundable registration fee is due at initial sign-up.

  2. Trial Lessons are restricted to one lesson per student, per teacher (i.e you can try more than one teacher, but not have several Trial Lessons with the same teacher). Trial lessons are available for more than one instrument/teacher and are available for a $35 fee.

  3. Tuition is a flat monthly fee and includes one weekly lesson with your instructor.

    • Most months, there will be four lessons per month. Some months, five lessons will be included. 

    • Occasionally, observance of major national holidays (New Year’s Eve , Christmas Day,  and Thanksgiving) will mean only three lessons are included.

    • DNA Music Academy recitals will replace any lessons already scheduled on that day.

  4. Tuition payment is due on the first day of every month.

    • After the fourth day of each month, a late fee of $25 will be applied to the student’s account.

  5. Tuition can be paid by credit card or through automatic debit payment through your www.DNAMusic.Academy Student Portal. DNA Music Academy strongly encourages using the Auto-Pay feature to prevent any late payment fees.

  6. In the case that tuition must be prorated, the total fee will be divided by the number of lessons possible in that month, then multiplied by the number of lessons taken. 

    • For example, a new student registers for 30-minute lessons each Monday. They enroll in the middle of a month with four Mondays and will only receive two lessons. $149 divided by the four (4) weeks comes out to $37.25, which then multiplied by two weeks, results in an invoice of $74.50. If they enroll in the middle of a month with five Mondays and will only receive two lessons. $149 divided by the five (5) weeks comes out to $29.8, which then multiplies by two weeks, result in an invoice of $59.6.


Tuition includes two formal performance opportunities in a recital hall per year. Additional educational materials (books, accessories, supplementary lessons) are not included in monthly tuition.


Students should attend their weekly lessons regularly and punctually.
