Policies

Group Classes

Melody Academy of Music reserves the right to cancel any group class with fewer than 2 enrolled students. We will refund of any tuition and materials fees when a class is canceled. If you sign up via your city, the refund will be processed by the city.

Group classes require at least 3 students to open. Semi-private classes are for 2 students and must be of the same instrument.

We do not refund tuition or materials fees after your child attends the first group class. There are no makeup lessons for group classes.

Private Lessons

We require all students to register with us on an annual basis.

All registered students (group lesson students in session 2 and beyond) will be issued an access card that will allow him or her to enter the front door of the studio. We encourage you to keep your lesson time as that will affect your access to the studio.

All students are required to provide a 2 week advance notice to withdraw from music lessons. No private lesson tuition or materials fee will be refunded. We will, however, refund you the $25 card access deposit after receipt of the Student Withdraw Form.

We have a very strict 24-hour cancellation policy. If you need to cancel a class due to prior commitments, please email the office (info@melodydoremi.com) and your teacher at least 24 hours before the class. We will not make up or refund/credit lesson tuition for classes that are canceled less than 24 hours prior to the class time.

For vacations of 2 weeks or more, please email the office and your teacher at least 2 weeks prior. We will not bill you for the canceled classes.

Each student is allowed a total of 5 cancellations and makeup lessons throughout the calendar year (January to December). After these have been used, canceled classes will not be refunded or made up. Please note that makeup classes may be taught as Zoom classes due to teachers’ restricted availability and busy schedules.

Please refer to our calendar for school closures; for holiday closures, no makeup classes are offered. These closures are accounted for in your tuition (meaning you do not pay for them!).

We do not permit photographing or videotaping in the classrooms during class. Melody Academy of Music reserves the right to use students’ performances and/or photos of the class in public places, for advertising, and/or online.
