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


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
  • No retainers or reschedule fees
  • Tuition is charged to your credit card monthly, 1 week prior to the monthly scheduled lessons.



Payment Policy (Private Lessons & Player’s Club)

  • Lessons are paid on a month by month basis.
  • All lessons must be paid in advance by the week prior to the new month.
  • Late payments will be assessed with a fee of $20 thereafter.
  • Any bounced checks will result in a $20 returned check fee.



  • RMI does not give refunds. However, we will give credits to be applied towards private lessons, classes and ensembles. Credits can be used at anytime, within a year of purchase.


Classes & Ensembles (60 minute classes, 10 weeks)

  • Classes are billed by the quarter with a tuition fee of $375.00.
  • There is a $45 early enrollment discount for class and ensemble tuition paid two weeks in advance (prior to the start of the quarter).
  • There are no refunds or credits for missed classes. The instructor will provide handouts for any missed classes.
  • Should one wish to withdraw within the first two weeks of the quarter, a prorated credit for private lessons will be issued (there will be no credits applied after the third week).
