RMI will be switching to a monthly tuition based system, but lesson rates will not change.

Tuition is charged to your credit card monthly – 1 week prior to your first lesson. If you want to end your enrollment at RMI, please let us know by the 20th of the month to stop autopay. You must remain enrolled in tuition to utilize your make-up credits.

MONTHLY Tuition Option

(For students that take regularly scheduled lessons, classes or ensembles weekly.)


  • Autopay
  • No late fees
  • No retainers or reschedule fees
  • Best lesson rates
  • Rescheduled *make-up lessons are available at no extra charge
  • Tuition guarantees your regularly scheduled time slot when you return from vacation etc.

*Make-up lessons can be reschedule for anytime other than your regularly scheduled lesson time, as long as you are currently enrolled in the monthly tuition program. 


ONE-OFF Lesson Option

(For students that don’t need or want a weekly scheduled lesson time.)


  • The most flexible scheduling option – anytime, any day, any teacher!
  • No late fees
