Tuition

We started as a small family-owned Performing Arts School in 1997

Over the years, we have grown to be a dynamic comprehensive one-location Music & Dance School, serving all ages on the Peninsula. There are 7 Departments at our school managed by Owners and Directors who inspire and unify our teaching artists. Furthermore we specialize in quality curriculum and continuous program enhancements. Accordingly our university-trained teachers are exceptional, with a high level of pedagogy and arts education, with credentials and experience. In turn, we take exceptional care of our teachers.

We are parents too

We have two children, a son entering his third year at UC Berkeley (in the Cal Marching Band & Berkeley Wind Ensemble too!) and a daughter entering her second year of high school. Our children grew up in Myriad’s music and dance programs. As parents, we realize families can choose between several schools. All music or dance schools are not the same. We are delighted you have taken an interest in our school. Compare the features and options of our school here: school comparison checklist.

Your Myriad tuition supports the teachers and the hard-working administrators at our school. Teachers and staff at Myriad benefit from professional development opportunities, matching 401-K retirement plan options, health benefits, continuing education modules, job performance bonuses and much more. We ensure that our teachers receive the fair compensation needed to sustain Bay Area Educators, keeping pace with increasing inflation and the rising cost-of-living index. In our community, we are doing our part to make a difference, supporting teachers in their commitment to inspire music and dance students in the Bay Area. You are making a difference too, when you register for music and dance lessons with our talented teachers. Tuition increases are listed here during our May Pre-Registration periods, and take affect after August 15th for the following School Year calendar. Thank you!

How does prorated tuition work?

Tuition is pro-rated, received monthly (on, or the nearest weekday following, the 24th of every month) and is prorated equally throughout the school year, August – June.

Prorated means to divide an amount proportionally, based on a unit of time. Specifically tuition is based on the number of hours your student is in class per week. Please refer to our current School Year calendar, for start date per program.  We calculate the # weeks of classes in our School Year calendar. Our tuition calculation is the # of weeks of class x hourly rate based on the number of hours in class per week divided by 12 equal monthly payments. You may wonder why you’re paying for a full month of December when there are only 2-3 weeks of classes in the month or why you are paying less in a month with 5 weeks. We do not bill different amounts every month. We keep it simple and straight-forward, just like monthly fees at a fitness center or yoga studio. Tuition is based upon the system of  weeks x class hours / 12 payments calculation.

There is no billing for School holidays.
