Studio Policies for in-person & virtual lessons

​​​​​Registration Fee
  • A $25.00 registration fee per student or $40.00 per family will be due upon registration.  This fee is paid once per academic year.


Tuition Payments

  • Lesson tuition is pre-paid monthly and is due at the last lesson of the month for the upcoming month. 
  • A $5 late fee per student will be automatically applied to all payments made after the due date.   
  • If payment is not received before the second lesson, no further lessons will be given to the student until the payment is rendered. 
  • If payment is made by check and it is returned by the bank, the parent of the student or the adult student will be charged the bank fee.  
  • Music 101 reserves the right to not schedule lessons for students with outstanding balances until paid in full.  
  • Only currently enrolled students may attend lessons.


COVID-19 Guidelines

Please follow the link and read the separate COVID-19 Guidelines and Waiver 

  • All visitors and employees of Music 101 will be required to wear face masks while inside and outside of the building.
  • Music 101 reserves the right to send home students who show flu symptoms or are not adhering to the face mask/ social distancing guidelines.

Illness

  • There are no credits, refunds, or reschedules for students who same-day cancel due to illness.  
  • A student may choose to attend a remote lesson if they are experiencing any type of symptoms.  Please call the studio to notify us of this change. 
  • Music 101 reserves the right to send students home if the student has a fever equal to or greater  than 100.4 or is displaying any outward signs of illness.  Music 101 will not refund the cost of a lesson to a student sent home sick.


Cancellations
The Music 101 academic year is broken up into 3 Sessions:
​         Session I:   August 30, 2021 - December 23, 2021
         Session II:  January 3, 2022 - March 31, 2022
         Session III:  April 1, 2022 - June 24, 2022


  • Music 101 will credit 1 cancelled lesson per Session with a 24 hour advance notice.  The deduction for the credit will appear on the following month’s invoice.
  • Same-day cancellations will not be credited, refunded, or rescheduled.  No exceptions.
  • A credit not used from one Session can not be rolled into the next.  
  • Credits can not be transferred between siblings who are taught by different teachers. 
  • Please remember to inform Music 101 of your scheduling conflicts, as opposed to your teacher.


Rescheduled/ Make-Up Lessons

  • The Music 101 schedule often does not allow for rescheduled lessons and therefore cannot be guaranteed. Our credit system has been designed with this in mind.
  • IF a reschedule is possible, the student will be placed within their current teacher’s hours. 
  • Students will not be rescheduled to a different teacher.  
  • Any reschedules cancelled by the student will not be credited or scheduled again.


Substitute Policy

When a teacher is to be absent, Music 101 believes in the policy of another member of the staff substituting for the day.  All students follow a similar methodology in lessons.  This enables members of the faculty to seamlessly cover each others’ lessons when the need arises. 

Voluntary Withdrawal of both Virtual and In-Person Classes

  • In order to withdraw from the lesson program, Music 101 requires written notification by the 15th day of the month prior to when lessons will end.  
    • For example, a student who would like to withdraw for the month of April, written notification must be given on or before March 15th.
  • Failure to notify the studio by the 15th will result in a student being held responsible for the upcoming month’s full tuition.  
  • If a student wishes to terminate lessons within a month that has been paid for, a refund will not be given for the remaining lessons.​


Parking
Please be aware that Music 101 does not have access to a driveway.  Parking is available on the opposite side of the street.  Please respect our neighbors by not using their driveways to park or turn around.  Thank you for your cooperation. 

Pick-up /  Drop-off
Please note the following:  There is a “No Stopping or Standing” sign directly in front of the Music 101 building.  We ask that you do not drop your student off more than 10 minutes prior to class and that you are prompt with your pickups to help maintain social distancing while at the studio.  All students must wait inside the studio for their caregiver to arrive.  

Snow Cancellations
Music 101 does not follow the weather related school cancellations.  Information about our studio closing will be available after 12:00 PM.  Please call the studio or check the website for updates.  In the event of a necessary closure due to weather, Music 101 will teach virtual classes that day.

Recitals
Music 101 is proud to host annual recitals during the month of June for our students to showcase the skills they diligently acquire throughout the year.  Recitals are a great opportunity to become inspired by the music of a student's peer as well.  We hope to be able to return to in-person recitals in 2021.

Studio Etiquette
Please refrain from bringing any type of food, drink, or candy into the studio.  Only currently enrolled students may attend lessons.  Please keep pets outside.
