Payment Policy

PAYMENT POLICY FOR FALL AND SPRING SEMESTERS Full payment is due at the time of registration, which includes a $10.00 registration fee for all enrollees, new and returning. Registration and payment must be completed (to the Community Music Program office) before a student can attend classes/lessons. Teachers do not handle registration forms or tuition payments. If necessary, a payment schedule may be arranged. In this case, there will be an additional fee of $10.00. Failure to maintain the payment schedule agreed upon will result in a $15.00 late fee for each missed payment and may result in the suspension of lessons. Suspended lessons will not be made up. Private music lesson fees are charged on a 13-week semester basis, unless otherwise noted. Music lesson fees include optional performance on recitals. Please contact the office for fees and further information.

For students taking private lessons, the summer session is flexible to accommodate various summer schedules. Students may register for any number of lessons anytime during the summer, depending upon teacher availability. (Official summer term is 9 weeks, starting the 1st week of June through end of July.) Please consult your teacher concerning summer lessons options.

Transfer/Withdrawal/Refunds

TRANSFER
Registering students are reserving time and making commitment for an entire term of lessons/classes. “Transfer” to another class or instructor is the recommended method for dealing with any issues that may arise during the term. In the case of a transfer, a $20.00 fee will be charged in addition to the $10.00 registration fee and the cost of lesson/class weeks already expired. (NOTE ATTENDANCE POLICY: Teachers are not obligated to make up lessons resulting from student absence and there will be no adjustment in tuition.)


WITHDRAWAL
Registering students are reserving time and making commitment for an entire term of lessons/classes. In the event of necessary withdrawal, refunds are  not commonly granted; and  absolutely not granted after the 5th week of the current term; and  absolutely not if the request comes in after the end of the term of lessons. Refunds for withdrawals will only be granted for the most serious of reasons, and made at the sole discretion of the program director. Any requests (especially refund requests) must be submitted in writing to the program director, and if approved, will take a minimum of four weeks to be processed. In the case of a withdrawal refund, a $20.00 fee will be charged in addition to the $10.00 registration fee and the cost of lesson/class weeks already expired. (NOTE ATTENDANCE POLICY: Teachers are not obligated to make up lessons resulting from student absence and there will be no adjustment in tuition.)
