Back to School: How Does Payment Work?

Another one of the big questions we get from new students is, "How do I pay for my lessons?" It's simple, fair and easy to understand.

Methods of Payment

Midtown Music School is pleased to offer flexibility for method of payment. You can use cheque, Visa, MasterCard and even Discover Card. (No cash, please, as it is harder to track for our accounts.)

Do I Have to Pay All At Once?

Not at all! Most of our students choose to break up their invoices into simple monthly payments. You can do this either by bringing in post-dated cheques or filling in the pre-authorized credit card section the hard copy of your registration form.

If you do choose to pay all at once, we offer a 2% discount off your open invoice, so feel free to consider this option!

Can I Pay for Lessons One-at-a-Time?

No, but we have good reasons. To be honest, we have so many students that we couldn't keep track of that many payments flying in week after week. Second, it works hand-in-hand with our attendance policy to ensure that student lessons proceed smoothly and simply. Finally, it simplifies your life to not have to worry about remembering a payment every time you come in.

Am I Locked In for the Whole Year?

Again, not at all! Unlike many other schools that pre-book you for a large block of time, we only ask that you give us four weeks' written notice if you have to stop (this is also in our attendance policy). We will then pro-rate your invoice down to the time you would be stopping and close out the account.

This All Seems Way Too Simple.

Well, we try to keep the administration to a minimum here at MTMS. You're not here to talk about the admin (though we're always happy to chat or answer any questions or concerns you have!) but to enjoy being part of a thriving musical community. If there is any information here that is missing, let us know and we will be sure to update this post with your questions.
