Tuition Costs

Please understand that each student is thoughtfully placed in a class at the start of the year. Classes then form the basis for tutor employment. Each child therefore, is expected to complete the year's tuition.

Fees for 2020

One year's tuition is $300. This amount is reduced to $280 if paid in full during Term 1.

Tuition fees for second and subsequent siblings is $250 per year discounted to $230 if paid in full by end of Term 1.

The tuition fee for a child learning a second instrument is $250 discounted to $230 if paid in full by end of Term 1.

One year's tuition is $300. This amount is reduced to $280 if paid in full during Term 1.

Tuition is unable to be refunded as places cannot be taken up by another child once the year has started. In extenuating circumstances, a partial refund may be made by the TSOM board on written request.

Payment can be made by cash or direct credit. We do allow fees to be made in installments to ease the financial burden on families.

From 2022, there will be a non-refundable enrolment fee of $30 (10% of the year's tuition). Pre-enrolment will be confirmed once this is received. The enrolment fee will be credited towards your child's 2022 lesson fee.
