Bumping this thread because I have questions: -What do you think of students being charged different rates for privates with the same instructor, assuming that EVERYTHING is equal, number of lessons each week, number of lessons bought at a time, etc.? I TOTALLY get the concept of independant instructors being able to charge whatever they want to whomever they want and all that. But could/does this cause animosity in your opinion? Students will talk, they will find out that student x is paying less than student y for the exact same set-up. I understand you can either just deal or walk away, but when your source of good dance instruction is limited (as in this one being the only game in town), then what? -When students are offered a discount for buying x number of lessons, how do you feel when the x is a moving target, based mostly upon how many lessons the student has typically bought in the past. A scenario such as for student A "my new lesson rate is $$ if you continue to buy x number of lessons and use them at the same rate as you are doing right now". However, student B is newer and has no history of buying lessons in bulk. They are told "my rate is $$ if you buy x-5 lessons". It seems as though this is highly unfair and is in a way sort of financially penalizing those established students that have a purchasing history. I'm not sure if I explained this exactly right, but if it makes sense, I'd like your opinions.
