POLICIES

Registration:
An annual registration fee of $30 per student (maximum 2 per family) is due at the time of registration for monthly tuition.  This fee is non-refundable.
Your registration fee reserves your instructor(s) and time slot(s) each week.  Lessons will be held the same day and time each week.

Attendance:
Attending your scheduled lesson on time each week is critical to the process of learning. Your registration reserves your teacher’s time during the year at that specific time period each week, regardless of student non-attendance, vacation, field trips, school music obligations, musicals/plays, sports, etc. Cases of extended illness will be handled on an individual basis. As a courtesy to your instructor, we ask that you notify the business office as soon as possible if you are unable to make a lesson, or if you are running late.  If a student is late to a lesson, we cannot guarantee their full lesson time.  With no advance notification, our instructors will wait a minimum of 1/3 of the scheduled lesson duration prior to marking a student as a ‘no show’ and forfeiting the lesson.

Notice of cancellation does not exempt the student from paying their contracted lesson rate.  Additionally, lessons cancelled with less than 24 hour notice are NOT eligible to be rescheduled as a make-up lesson (per your plans makeup policy).  There are NO exceptions to this policy.

Make-ups:
Tuition is based on 45 weeks per year. Students are allowed 4 Make-Up Lessons per calendar year for private lessons. No Make-Up Lessons for Group Classes. Students can optionally join another group class if they cannot make their group lesson time.  Make-Up Lessons must be scheduled within the allowed time. Please note: Tuition is never prorated for missed lessons. If lessons are not made up within the allowed time, the student forfeits the option of a Make-Up Lesson.

Holidays:
Hyphenate Music Academy does not close on all Holidays. Observed Holidays: Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, New Years Day. Should your regularly scheduled lesson land on a Holiday that we are closed on, the student will be given a make up lesson at a mutually agreeable time with their instructor. Should your regularly scheduled lesson land on a holiday that the academy is open and you do not want to attend your lesson, you would need to either use your make up lesson if applicable or forfeit that lesson.

Tuition is based on 45 weeks per year. Hyphenate Music Academy is closed for 2 weeks for summer break, 2 weeks for winter break, and 1 week for spring break.

Instructor Absence:
In the event Hyphenate Music Academy is closed or your instructor is unable to make your scheduled lesson, we will work with you to find a mutually convenient time to reschedule your lesson.  In the event an instructor cannot teach, there may be occasions where a substitute instructor will be used to keep regularly scheduled lessons or make up the lesson missed.

Sick lessons:
In the event that you are not feeling well we recommend you do not skip your lesson but rather take your lesson online via Skype or Zoom with your teacher. This will save you from having to use a make up lesson.  If you are too sick to have your lesson you will need to reschedule as a make-up lesson (per your plans allowance) or forfeit the lesson.

Schedule Change:
All requests for changes in your permanent instructor, lesson day, and lesson time should be made in writing to our business office. Lesson spots are limited and we cannot promise that we will be able to accommodate all schedule change requests.

Student Withdrawal:
To discontinue lessons, please contact our business office.  All withdrawals require 30 days notice.  We do not prorate or refund tuition for withdrawals.  Students are responsible for tuition for the duration of their contract whether or not they choose to  attend all of their lessons.

Lesson Fees:
Tuition is charged either in full on the 28th of each month prior to your upcoming lessons.  We are able to set up payments to be processed via auto pay by pre-authorized credit card. Please complete a payment authorization agreement for ACH payments with our business office.  In the event that an ACH transaction or check is rejected for insufficient funds, a $25 fee will be added to your account.  Payments made after the 15th of the month will be subject to a $25 late fee.
