To book private lessons, or for information call: (212) 741-0091 X104


Scheduling of lessons is done through the office only, not through your teacher. You must inform The Collective office if you wish to cancel your lesson or wish to make any changes in your lesson schedule. It is not the private instructors’ responsibility to schedule or administrate their lessons in any way. This will ensure that no misunderstandings over scheduling or payment occur.


To be excused from your lesson, you must contact the office by 2 p.m. the day before your lesson is scheduled. If you cancel after 2 p.m., or fail to show up for a scheduled lesson, you will be charged for that lesson. PLEASE NOTE: If your lesson is scheduled on a Monday, you must contact the office by the previous Saturday no later than 5pm.

 Payment for lessons may be made each time you take a lesson, or by the 4, 6, or 8 lesson block: A) If you wish to pay for lessons one at a time, they are $97 each. A one-lesson deposit of $97 is required in advance of the first lesson. This deposit is kept on file for the duration of your studies and is refundable, or can be applied to pay for your last lesson, should you discontinue. To continue scheduling lessons, the deposit must be repaid. B) If you wish to pay for lessons in blocks of 4, 6, or 8 lessons, you will be charged at the discounted rate of $92 per lesson and no deposit is necessary. Initial payment for the 4 lessons is made in advance of the first lesson ($368 total). You will receive a verbal bill when you check in at the front desk on the third of four lessons to remind you that payment is due on the fourth lesson for the next block of lessons. It is your responsibility to notify the office if you do not wish to continue. C) You may also pay for six or eight lessons at a time. Lessons are $552 per block of 6 (a combined savings of $30), and $736 per block of eight (a combined savings of $40). Lessons do not need to be all taken in 6 or 8 weeks, nor do they need to be with only one teacher – you can study with various members of the faculty, at whatever schedule you like – weekly, every other week, or “as arranged.” PLEASE NOTE: A block of lessons does expire 1 year from the date of purchase.


Refunds: In the event that you discontinue private study in the middle of a block of lessons, used lessons paid for at the block rate will be charged at the individual rate ($97 per hour) and the balance refunded. If there is no outstanding balance on your account, your lesson deposit will be refunded, if you pay individually. Any outstanding balances will be charged against your deposit and the remainder refunded. The $35 registration fee is non-refundable.

 Refunds are paid by check only, and are mailed within six weeks of refund request in writing or by phone to The Collective office. No refunds will be paid in cash. If you wish to pick up a refund check in person, you must notify the office at least one week in advance.
