@Richard-Boukas

International students inquire about other app options.

If any transaction fees are involved, they are added to the cost of lessons.

Students whose schedule and finances are not conducive to committing to a regular lesson schedule and frequency are recommended to sign up for one lesson at a time, at FULL RATE.

TRIAL LESSON and BLOCK DISCOUNT 

A student can arrange an INITIAL TRIAL LESSON at FULL RATE before deciding to book a block.

If a block is PREPAID IN FULL and the second lesson is scheduled WITHIN TWO WEEKS of the initial trial lesson, the TRIAL LESSON is counted as the first lesson of that block and its fee is deducted from the total cost of the block.

PAYMENT OF THE FULL BLOCK BALANCE can be done in two ways:

1. VENMO by one week before the second scheduled lesson

2. CASH at the Second Lesson (for repeat BLOCK students)
