School System


-There is no registration fee.
-Prior to the first lesson a 40 minute level check will be given free of charge.
-Tuition is paid on a monthly basis, payable in the fourth week of the preceding month.
-In the case that a student quits in the middle of the month, the remaining tuition is nonrefundable.
-In the case of company paying, payment method is negotiable

Lesson Days and Number of Lessons per Month:

-Lessons are generally taken on a given day and time four times a week.
-The minimum number of lessons is four a month.
-In the case that, for example, a student takes lessons on Monday and there are five Mondays in a given month, then in principal the fifth one will be a holiday; but if so desired, a lesson can be taken on a “fifth day”. Of course the extra lesson would be charged at the regular rate.
-The fifth day may also be used to make up a regularly scheduled lesson that had been canceled for whatever reason.

Canceling Lessons:

-Group and semi-private lesson schedules are fixed and cannot be rescheduled at short notice.
-Private students who would like to cancel a lesson are asked to contact us by 5:00 p.m. of the previous day. If they do so, then the lesson can be rescheduled on a different day and time during that or the following month.
-If we are contacted after 5:00 p.m. then the lesson can be canceled but not rescheduled. Canceled lessons that are not made up within the current or following month are nonrefundable.
-In the case of typhoons or heavy snow we will contact students on the day prior to their lesson to let them know that the lesson has been canceled. If you don’t hear from us, then lessons will be held as scheduled. If a lesson is canceled due to inclement weather it will be rescheduled for another day if at all possible.
Changes in the Number of Students in Group Lessons:
-In the case that the member of students in a group decreases, resulting in, for example, a small group becoming a semi-private group, or a semi-private group becoming a private lesson, then the lower tuition will be charged for the following month and efforts made to find new members to make up the original numbers. If no new members can be found within a month, tuition will be charged according to the number of members in the group.

Additional Fees:

-Charges for textbooks and other materials (¥1,000~¥10,000) are not included in the tuition fee. For details, please see the tuition page.
