BLOCK RATE LESSON STUDY 

The BLOCK RATE option is an excellent way to pre-book regular lessons at an attractive discount.

BLOCK RATE DISCOUNTS are as follows:
 

IN-PERSON INSTRUCTION

• TEN-HOUR PREPAID BLOCKS (five two-hour sessions) at a DISCOUNT of 15%

• EIGHT-HOUR PREPAID BLOCKS (four two-hour sessions) at a DISCOUNT of 10%

ONLINE INSTRUCTION

• NINE HOUR PREPAID BLOCKS (six ninety minute sessions) at a discount of 15%

BLOCK PREPAYMENT OPTIONS

• MOBILE DEVICES in the U.S. by VENMO (@Richard-Boukas) is preferred.

PAYPAL is also accepted, however, if any fee (currently 3.1%) is attached to the funds transaction, the student must add the fee to their total payment. This would be reflected as a reduction in the % discount of a BLOCK.

 

• CASH PAID IN FULL at the FIRST LESSON of a BLOCK.

TRIAL LESSON and BLOCK DISCOUNT 
A student can arrange an initial trial lesson at full rate before booking a block.
If a block is purchased (prepaid) within TWO WEEKS of the initial trial lesson, the trial lesson is considered the first lesson of that block and the appropriate discount is applied.
