Payment Policy

Payment directly to the teacher is due at the first lesson. You have two choices of arranging payment:

1. Lump-sum payment for the entire year.

To calculate your private lesson tuition, multiply the total number of lessons (consult the calendar) by the rate of your preferred lesson length. Payment will be made directly to the private teacher. 

For group classes and the registration fee, please direct your payment to Suzuki Niagara.

2. Monthly post-dated cheques.

If you wish to spread out payments, this can be done using post-dated cheques, dated for the 1st of each month of study and payable directly to the teacher. To calculate the amount for each cheque, consult this list  to determine how many lessons are in each month. Cheques for group classes can be post-dated as well, dated for the first session for each group class term. 

For group classes and the registration fee, please direct your payment to Suzuki Niagara.

All post-dated cheques (private lessons, registration, group class tuition) are due at the first lesson.
