FAQ's

How do I sign up?

Click here to fill out a registration form. Registration for monthly lessons is $50/year, or $75 for families. This locks in your lesson time and covers books, materials, awards and more. There is no registration fee to sign up for a 4 week Jumpstart Class.

How do I pay?

Monthly tuition is due on the 5th, from September to May. When you sign up, you are able to enter your credit/debit card info directly into the scheduling software. From there, payments will be automatically charged monthly. No additional work on your end!

What does the monthly tuition cover?

Tuition is based on enrollment, not attendance. Tuition covers so much more than a weekly lesson!

  • Studio events, including recitals, piano parties, award celebrations, and more
  • Music and supplies, including maintaining student lending library
  • Time spent in lessons, as well as lesson preparation (lesson planning, curriculum development, etc.)
  • Studio Technology (studio iPads, apps, recording equipment, etc.)
  • Student incentives, prizes, and awards
  • Continuing education and teacher training, including professional journals & publications, and attendance of music education conferences and seminars.
  • Professional memberships (Music Teachers National Association & Iowa Music Teachers Association), which provide students with additional opportunities for festivals, competitions, and performance events.
  • Other studio expenses & maintenance (WIFI, photocopies, instrument maintenance, repairs, etc.)
  • Professional commerical space, business licenses, insurance and taxes.

What is the commitment required?

We know that piano lessons aren't forever! If it's the right time for you to stop, here's how it works:

1) Email whitney@bloommusicstudio.com with notice to stop enrollment

2) If received before the 15th, the student will finish out lessons that calendar month

3) If notice is received after the 15th, the next month's payment will be processed as usual and the student will finish out the following calendar month

What happens if I need to miss a lesson?

  • If a student misses a lesson and there is an available spot that week at another lesson time, parents or students can reschedule in the ‘My Music Staff’ portal. This option is not guaranteed, and dependent on open time slots. If there is not an available lesson time that week, students are encouraged to send in video submissions of their pieces for feedback and to receive new assignments.
  • There will be 3 days during the school year available for makeup lessons (please see studio calendar). If a student would like to attend a makeup lesson on one of these days, they must sign up to attend.
  • Much like dance, sports, and many other monthly activities, there are no refunds for student absences. Any teacher absences or cancellations will be made up in May.men
