Tuition Payment Policy

Tuition is paid monthly using our electronic automatic payment system with debit/credit card or bank account withdrawal. Authorization for automatic payment is given when the account number is provided. The monthly payments are processed the 1st of each month.

Attendance Policy

Lessons have been reserved for you or your student at a specific time and day. This is the time for which you are responsible until you withdraw from lessons, and your attendance is expected.

If a student has to miss a lesson for any reason and notice is given more than 24 hours in advance, we will do our best to reschedule that lesson, subject to the availability of the teacher, and up to a limit of two rescheduled lessons per quarter which do not rollover. Students are not guaranteed a reschedule and we will not attempt to reschedule lessons canceled with fewer than 24 hours of notice given.

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.

Notifying your student’s teacher does not confirm a cancellation; you must notify the office. Please contact the office by texting (631) 470-9705 (Melville) / (631) 239-6169 (Fort Salonga) or emailing us at melville@gracemusicschool.com / fort@gracemusicschool.com to cancel the lesson
