TUITION and lesson lengths:(effective August 2019)

  • 30-minute lessons: $90 per month, August-May. (Book 1 students.)
  • 45-minute lessons: $120 per month, August-May (Book 2-3 students.)
  • 60-minute lessons: $150 per month, August-May (Book 4 and beyond.)
  • 75-minute lessons: $180 per month, August-May (Families with consecutive lessons.)


Invoices are sent the 1 st of the month and tuition is due by the 15th of the month. Make tuition payments easily online, or by check at lessons. A $15 fee will be added to late payments. If you are unable to make a complete payment on time, please reach out to me to work out a payment plan. I reserve the right to suspend lessons of students behind in payments.


Family discount: Families with multiple members taking lessons will receive the rate for their total combined lesson time rather than individual rates, provided lessons are scheduled consecutively. This will typically result in a discount of about $30 per month. Family members may attend the same or different group classes. If family members have non-consecutive lessons they will be billed the separate lesson rate for each instead of combined.


Summer lessons
will be offered on a different rate, with flexible scheduling. Information for Summer 2020 will be available by May 1st 2020.  

Discontinuing lessons: The time will eventually come when you will move on from Strickland Suzuki Strings – whether for a family move, pursuing other interests, or needing something different than what is offered here. Please communicate in a timely manner so that we may facilitate the smoothest transition possible. Ideally we would know for at least a semester that change was coming, and could use that time to prepare for it. Changes mid-semester require at least a month’s notice to avoid additional charges.
