Read below to learn about the perks included in your tuition.
COVID-19 UPDATE: We have removed all piano/guitar surcharges for tunings and setups due to the fact that these services are currently considered non-essential and are unlikely to be available to you by the end of the semester. The information below for Piano and Guitar Students, as well as Sibling Discounts will apply once again when we are under more normal circumstances.
The following information is for the Academic Year. During the Summer, we do not provide any complimentary tunings or setups.
Your tuition includes 45 minute private lessons. Regular closings are taken into account (winter break, a week off for Thanksgiving, spring break, etc.). There are no make ups. Instead, all students will have the opportunity to participate in workshops and classes the week after the end of the academic year. 60 minute private lessons are available upon request.
Your tuition includes access to a private lesson teacher on your reserved day and time, a private lesson room inside our facility, that teacher's prep time to acquire materials, and to set up your lesson space to accommodate you. Tuition includes a teacher's undivided attention and expertise for your allotted lesson time each week. Tuition also includes optional participation in any/all recitals that we may offer throughout the year.
Your school year tuition includes TWO professional piano tunings at your home. Summer tuition does NOT include this service. As piano teachers, we recognize that keeping your instrument in good shape is a determining factor in the success of the student. We recommend scheduling these six months apart -- once in the fall and again in the spring. Our goal is to ensure that our students are playing on well-maintained instruments.
It is possible that your piano may need additional work at the time of the tuning, such as a pitch shift, action regulation, or repairs. If this is the case, the tuner would let you know, and you would be responsible for any additional charges beyond the included A440 tuning.
To schedule, please contact John Douglass at or 608-455-2030 and mention that you are an AOS piano family.
Your school year tuition includes TWO professional setup adjustments. Each setup will include a new set of strings at no additional cost. Scheduling regular adjustments for your guitar is important to keep it in good working order. We recognize that practicing on a high-quality and well-maintained instrument is one of the biggest reasons a student stays interested in learning. These setups will ensure that your instrument is sounding its best, and is adjusted so that it's easier to play -- adjustments will be made to the truss rod, intonation, and action as needed.
To schedule, please contact Adam Chisman at or 608-371-9030.
Families that have two or more children enrolled in piano may request a sibling discount to account for the extra 2x/year tuning premium(s) that will not be used if you have only one piano in your home.
