How do I pay for lessons?

Payments may be made online, on the FMC App, or by phone. Advanced payment is required for all lessons. We do not accept checks or cash. 

Payments 101

  • All major credit and debit cards are accepted. ACH/e-check is also accepted. You will always receive an invoice before your card is charged.

  • Teachers cannot accept payment for lessons directly from students.

Monthly Students

  • An invoice will be sent 5-6 days before the first of the month.
  • There is scheduling flexibility where you can omit dates from the upcoming monthly schedule before your card is automatically run on the 1st of the month.
  • You have until the due date (typically the first of the month) to indicate any unavailability you may have for the coming month and omit those lessons.
  • Your card will be charged on the 1st of the month, or due date indicated if other than the 1st. 

Semester Students

  • There is just one invoice, paid in advance, that includes all lesson dates in the semester.
  • We will prorate for a late start to the semester.
  • Only Federal holidays and an FMC winter break are excluded from Semester lessons. 
  • Payment is required by the due date for all lessons.

Ad Hoc Students

  • You will receive an invoice before each individually scheduled lesson. The invoice must be paid prior to the lesson.
