Pricing and Policies - NEW !! READ ALL !
NEW, EASIER PRICING ! must read ..........
You may think you notice that tuition prices are "higher" than last year -
BUT SURPRISE!! THEY'RE NOT !
Tuition prices have been redistributed for simplicity. The usual semester Concert Fee and semester Prop Fees are now INCLUDED in your tuition.
So HERE's THE DEAL: in the past, you have had a monthly tuition fee. Then, closer to concert you have had to add the prop fee, then closer to concert you have had to add the concert fee. That was confusing! YOUR MONTHLY TUITION NOW INCLUDES THOSE EXTRA FEES AND YOUR MONTHLY CHARGES WILL ALWAYS BE EXACTLY THE SAME. EXACTLY THE SAME AMOUNT WILL BE CHARGED EVERY SINGLE MONTH, WITHOUT EVER HAVING A "NICKEL AND DIME" CHARGE POP UP IN YOUR ACCOUNTS. Just one FLAT FEE - always - every month no matter what. (with the exception of costumes, because some people need 'em and others don't, and some are new, and some are used, etc)
And it will cost you no more than before. AMEN, Bruthas and Sistas !!!!
MONTHLY TUITION RATES - I charge per "year", not "per month or class or hours". BUT you do NOT pay the whole year at once. The prices below show charges that have been divided into 9 equal monthly installments for your conveeeeeeeeeenience. You may pay one installment each month, or more than one if you like.
One Child: $45.00 (which includes all concert and prop fees) Two siblings: $85.00 (which includes all concert and prop fees) Three Siblings: $115.00 (which includes all concert and prop fees) Four Siblings: $130.00 (which includes all concert and prop fees) Five Siblings: What do I look like, Mother Goose? (call me)
REGISTRATION FEE $40 / family per year As with all performance groups, there is a registration fee due upon registering each year. This fee covers music orchestration, live music rights, rehearsal tracks (CDs and digital), lesson materials, paperwork, software fees, and dozens of other costs.
Note: registration is good for the entire year. If any siblings join us in the Spring, you do NOT need to pay again.
CONCERT FEE - now included in your tuition payment. This allows me to offer free admission to as many friends and family as you want to invite to our concerts at the beautiful Idaho Falls Civic Center. This fee helps offset hefty costs of the stage technicians, lighting crew, sound techs, videographers, rental fees of the auditorium, and backstage holding room rentals. This is a highly professional show in a world class auditorium. An experience your child will get nowhere else! The concerts are FREE to the public, so invite all your family, neighbors, friends, and enemies.
PROP FEES - now included in your tuition payment. This covers any props we use in the shows OR in class (you keep!) as well as instruction materials, prizes, etc.
COSTUME FEES (due in Nov/ Mar, if needed)
Boys *$35.00 for Shirt, Ties, shirt accessories. I order these for you.
MUCH of the time, however, I have many *used boys'' costume items in my inventory, as people turn their "too small" items in to me and I sell them for them and they get money back for their used costumes. If my inventory has your size, used costumes may be purchased at 40% off the price of new items.
Boys also (as always) provide on your own : black dress pants, black socks, completely black shoes
Girls *$40.00 for performance top. Younger Girls' and Older Girls' costume prices are now equal costs. I order these for you. MUCH of the time, however, I have many *used girls' costume items in my inventory, as people turn their "too small" items in to me and I sell them for them and they get money back for their used costumes. If my inventory has your size, used costumes may be purchased at 40% off the price of new items.
TaVaci hair accessories are also available for purchase at costume purchasing time.
Girls provide on their own: black dress pants / leggings, black socks, completely black shoes
☀ COSTUME GOOD NEWS: TaVaci costumes are the same for every show - Christmas and Spring - and every year. You buy ONE costume for TaVaci. When your student turns into a 3rd grader, your child advances to the "older kids" costume and you turn their "younger costume" in to me for used re-sale. You also may be able to sell your used costume when it no longer fits, (by turning it into me) and / or buy used pieces from my returned inventory as your child grows.

Performances The concert is an integral part of your child's performance training, as well as their big reward (and yours). It's the most positive of all the music activities in improving self esteem and confidence. There will be two concerts annually (Christmas and Spring). All concerts and performances are free and open to the public.
We also appear at the Festival of Trees during the Christmas semester and we put on an Elementary School assembly during the Spring semester.
MEDIA RELEASE I understand my child may be photographed or video taped for promotional, training, or social media purposes. We never share full names of children or any personal details.
