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.
No refunds will be given after the first day of class, regardless of the student’s attendance of the class.
Materials fee is non-refundable.
No partial enrollment. We cannot enroll your child partway through the session.
We do not have make up classes for missed group classes.
We require all students to register with us on an annual basis.
No refunds will be given after tuition has been paid, regardless of the student’s attendance of the lessons. 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!).
All registered students (group class students in session 2 and beyond as well as private students) will be issued an access card that will allow entrance via 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.
Makeup Class/Cancellation Policy
We have a strict 24 hour cancellation policy. If you need to cancel a class due to prior commitments, please email the office (email@example.com) and your teacher at least 24 hours before the class.
Classes that are cancelled with less than 24 hours notice are not eligible for makeup lessons.
We will not make up, refund, or credit lesson tuition for classes that are canceled less than 24 hours prior to the class time.
Each student is allowed a total of 5 cancellations and makeup lessons throughout the calendar year (January to December). If you choose to not take a makeup class, we will not refund or credit your tuition, and you will lose one of your 5 makeup class opportunities.
After the 5 cancellations and makeups have been used, cancelled classes will not be refunded, credited, or made up.
Makeup classes may be taught as Zoom classes or with another teacher due to teachers’ restricted availability and busy schedules.
For vacations of 2 weeks or more, please email the office and your teacher at least 2 weeks prior.
To hold your lesson slot with your teacher, we will continue to bill you for the duration of your vacation.
If you choose not to be billed for the duration of your vacation, we will not hold your lesson slot. Contact the office when you have returned from your vacation to schedule a new lesson time.
