REFUNDS

Students enrolled in Music Wonderland, Junior Music Course 1, and Young Musicians' Course 1 may withdraw from class at anytime during the first four weeks of class. Should a student withdraw, a pro-rated refund of the tuition paid will be issued or can be credited for future use. NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN AFTER THE FOURTH WEEK OF CLASS.


MATERIALS

Materials are not returnable.


FAMILY DISCOUNT

A 10% tuition discount will be given to additional siblings enrolled in any of our classes. Discount does not apply to materials.


RECITALS

Children will participate in a recital during class when they finish a book, approximately each semester. All students, except those in Music Wonderland, will participate in a recital once a year.


ABSENCES

It is important for you and your child to attend every class and to be on time. This insures the success of the program and keeps your child comfortable with the class. BECAUSE


ATTENDANCE IS SO IMPORTANT, THERE IS NO TUITION REDUCTION FOR MISSED CLASSES.

If you have a conflict with your scheduled class, your child may attend a make-up class (at the same level) at no charge. Check with your teacher for other options if no other class is offered at the appropriate level.


PARENT PARTICIPATION

A parent or appropriate adult is required to attend Music Wonderland and Junior Music Course with his or her child. Parents are not required to attend Young Musicians Course or Junior Extension Course, although they may.


CLASS SIZE

Each class must have a minimum of 4 students. If a class for which you have registered does not have enough students, we may contact you and make arrangements for another class time. Classes will be regrouped at the instructor's discretion.


SAFETY

For your child's safety, please make sure they wait for you inside and that you escort them in the parking lot.


CONTACT INFORMATION

Please make sure we have accurate e-mail addresses and phone numbers so we can contact you regarding assignments, class cancellations, and other unforeseen occurrences.
