SUMMER TUITION, WITHDRAWAL & REFUND POLICIES: PRIVATE LESSONS:
Students may enroll for a specific number of private lessons during our 9-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.
RESCHEDULING PRIVATE LESSONS: We are willing to try to arrange an alternative lesson time in special circumstances. If you need to request rescheduling a lesson, please let us know as soon as possible. If rescheduling the lesson is not possible, the lesson is considered missed. No makeup or credit will be given.
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.
For continuing students: One payment – full payment for lessons and classes plus the $10 summer registration fee due by July 1 Two payments – half of your summer tuition plus the $10 registration fee due by July 1; balance due by August 1
For new students: One payment – full payment for lessons and classes plus the $10 summer registration fee due before the first lesson Two payments – half of your summer tuition plus the $10 registration fee due before the first lesson; balance due by August 1
