Initial trial class can be requested once per specific teacher, and it is charged ½ price of the lesson price. A one-time fee will be billed at the time of booking. After the initial trial lesson, we will assign you a specific lesson time. From then on, lessons are scheduled on weekly basis at that specific lesson time.
Registration fee will be charged after the initial trial lesson, once you confirm your interest.
All lessons are billed monthly and due on the first day of the month. The amount per month will vary depending on the number of lessons in the month.
Any extra expenses (recital fees, instrument rental) will be discussed prior to charging your account.
We accept these methods of payment: MasterCard or Visa credit cards, Interac Bank Electronic Fund Transfer emailed to email@example.com, cheques payable to Klaudia’s Music Studio, or cash.
- Families on Automatic Payment will be charged on the 1st day of each month for lessons in the respective month. With your authorization, we will repeatedly charge your account on monthly basis. Make sure we have updated credit card information on file.
- Families sending payments through Interac Bank Electronic Fund Transfer please do so before or on the 1st of the month.
- Families who drop off payments at our 2 locations also please do so on or before the 1st of the month.
- Late fee of $5 per student will apply if we have not received payment by the due date.
A deposit of $100 will be required at the end of the school year (during the month of June) to secure your lesson time for the next school year (September).
- This deposit will be used toward your September lessons payment.
- This amount is not refundable if you decide not to resume your lessons in September.
Automatic Monthly payment authorization is easily set through our Web Student Portal.
Information provided by you (personal information, email address, credit card) is strictly confidential and will not be shared with third party.

Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM) Preparation Rules
String players (violin, viola, cello, double bass), winds and brass:
Piano accompaniment at the exam is mandatory. We provide all the preparation rehearsals and accompaniment at the exam for extra fee, or you can have your own piano accompanist. Once you have purchased the RCM set of repertoire books (piano and solo insert), this piano copy must be provided for the accompanist and solo book is for the student. One extra copy of music must be provided for the examiner, which means you need another original copy at the exam (can be either piano or solo insert), so unless you memorized all the selections from solo copy, you will need one extra. Also, extra technique book (scales and studies book and orchestral excerpts) is required at exam for the examiner. Klaudia’s Music Studio Inc. keeps some spare original books you can borrow for this purpose free of charge. Please check with your teacher for availability.
All instruments and theory:
Please note that the exams are very complex and adequate time must be allocated to prepare students for the exam, including extra lessons, if necessary. Exam sign up process must be discussed with the teacher prior to registering. Teacher has the right to refuse completing the preparation for RCM if the parent enrolled the student to the exam without notice. Only the teacher can determine the readiness of the student at the time of the sign up.
Summer Classes and Summer Camps
Summer tuition will be charged monthly on July 1st and August 1. Prior commitment to specific number of lesson for each month needs to be determined at the time of booking and cannot be modified after the payment is made. (No registration fees are required for summer classes and summer camps). Fees are non-refundable.
