Summer 2017 Policies

Tuition, Withdrawal & Refund Policies ~ Summer 2017

PRIVATE LESSONS:  Students may enroll for a specific number of private lessons during our 7-week session based on their family’s and their teacher’s vacation schedules.  In return for this flexibility, and in fairness to our faculty, there are no make-ups or refunds for student absences or cancellations once a schedule has been agreed upon; only teacher absences are made-up, refunded or credited in the summer.  There are no refunds given if a student withdraws for any reason.  Payment is due in advance unless arrangements for smaller payments are made with the Director.

CLASSES AND ENSEMBLES: Tuition for ensembles and classes is based on an enrollment of at least 4 students, unless otherwise stated.  Classes and ensembles may run with three students for an additional $40 (45 minutes) or $50 (1 hour) per student.  If only two students enroll, and the director and teacher feel they are a good match, each student will pay half the cost of a private lesson, with the parents’ agreement.  We reserve the right to cancel any class or ensemble that is under enrolled; payment will be fully refunded.  If a student withdraws from a class or an ensemble,  no refund will be given.  Payment is due in advance unless arrangements for making smaller payments are made with the Director.  See for full policy details.

Financial Aid is available on the basis of need.  To request an application, please check the appropriate line on the registration form or call the school at 508-856-9541. 

The Joy of Music Program, Inc. does not discriminate in its enrollment and programs or in staff, faculty and board membership on the basis of race, color, age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, creed, national origin or disability.
