Tuition Fees: We offer two options for lessons: drop-in or weekly. Lesson rates are $30 per half hour.

Weekly Lessons: Weekly lessons are paid by the calendar month on the first lesson of the month. Payment is required when the lesson time is booked, either in person, or by phone. If you prefer, we can keep a record of a credit card to process monthly payments. Once you have registered for weekly lessons, you will be on the schedule indefinitely or until proper notice to discontinue lessons is given.

Drop-in Lessons: The tuition fee for a “drop-in” lesson is $30.00 for a half hour, payment is required when the lesson is booked. Drop-in lessons are booked by availability and can not be cancelled.

Missed Lessons/Cancellations: If you are unable to attend a weekly lesson, we require 48 hours notice. With proper notice the option of a make-up lesson will be available. Unfortunately without sufficient notice, the student will be charged for the lesson. Lesson(s) that must be missed due to an instructor’s illness or professional obligations will either be rescheduled or filled in by a qualified substitute instructor. If you decide to discontinue lessons, the regular 48 hours notice is required. Drop-in lessons cannot be cancelled. Please call (604) 222-DRUM (3786) for any scheduling changes and speak with the front desk.
