Monthly Tuition Payment Policy

Monthly tuition payments are recurring and are charged to your debit/credit card on the first of each month until a Withdrawal Form is submitted to Grace Music School’s office. Withdrawal forms must be submitted by the 15th of your final month to discontinue lessons and stop charges to your account for the following month. Authorization for automatic payment is given when the card is provided.

Monthly tuition is a flat rate based on 48 lessons per year, and we are open 48 weeks per year in accordance with our published holiday calendar. Students average 4 lessons per month and the tuition is the same each month; i.e., you are not charged more when you have five lessons in a month, and not charged less when you have three lessons in a month.

Attendance Policy

We have a strict 24-hour cancellation policy. If you need to cancel a lesson for any reason, please contact your school’s office by texting (631) 470-9705 (Woobury)  or (631) 239-6169 (Fort Salonga).  You may also email us at woodbury@gracemusicschool.com / fort@gracemusicschool.com to cancel the lesson, or speak with the front desk staff, a full 24 hours before the lesson, in which case we will do our best to reschedule that lesson, subject to the availability of your teacher. Students are limited to two rescheduled lessons per quarter, which do not rollover.

Lessons canceled with less than 24 hours notice are not eligible for reschedules, credits, or refunds of any kind.  Class tuition will not be refunded in the event of a student cancellation regardless of how far in advance notice of the cancellation is given. Students are not guaranteed a reschedule and scheduling requests should not be made to teachers.

In lieu of canceling a lesson, you may request an online lesson if you are ill or unable to commute to our school for any reason.

In the event of a teacher absence, a qualified substitute will be provided for that day, or the student will be given a guaranteed reschedule subject to teacher availability.  Teachers provide student notes for the covering teacher to ensure the continuity of lessons.  

Any and all pending reschedules must be completed before the last month of enrollment and may not be carried forward into a future month for which you are not enrolled. 

GMS Withdrawal Policy

To discontinue lessons and to stop charges to your account, GMS must be notified no later than the 15th of your last month!

***We require this advanced notice to provide adequate time to fill the teachers schedule and to ensure we keep our teachers schedules consistent.

By notifying us by the 15th of the current month (your last month) you will ensure that your auto-pay will stop for the following month.

**For example: if you withdraw on Nov.14th, your auto-pay will be stopped on Dec. 1st.

If you withdraw after the 15th of the month, YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THE FOLLOWING MONTH’S LESSONS!

***For example, if you withdraw on November 18, you will be charged on December 1 and the auto-pay will be stopped on January 1.

We do not prorate tuition for the last month’s lessons. Students will be responsible for their last month’s tuition whether or not they attend lessons.

What if the student can’t finish out the month?

You can have a sibling, parent or friend take lessons during the last month since this time slot has been paid for.
