All lessons are booked and must be paid for on a monthly basis. A $25.00 registration fee per student or $40.00 per family will be due upon registration. This fee will be added to September tuition on an annual basis. Payments are due at the last lesson of the month for the upcoming month. Any payments received after the 1st of the month will incur a $5.00 late fee per student. If payment is not received before the second lesson, no further lessons will be given 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 accepts cash and/or check only. Only the current student(s) on your account may attend lessons. 







Voluntary Withdrawal from Monthly Lessons
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, notification must be given by a parent or guardian 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. 


Cancellations

The Music 101 year is broken up into 4 Sessions:
​Session I:   September - December
Session II:  January - March
Session III:  April - June
Summer Session:   July - August


Sessions I-III:

Because a lesson time is reserved especially for a particular student, the studio requires 24 hours notice of an absence. A student may be credited for one lesson per session IF 24 hours notice of the absence is given. A credit will always appear on the invoice of the month following the absence. Failure to provide advance notification of an absence will result in a forfeit of the lesson and payment of that lesson. A student will be charged for any additionally missed lessons within a given session after the 1 credit has been issued. Any missed lesson minutes due to the late arrival of a student will not be made up.
Music 101 does not offer make-up lessons or reschedules. The credit system will be used in place of the make-up. A lesson which is canceled due to the absence of the teacher will always be credited to the following month's invoice. 


Summer Session:

Summer session is a flexible 7 week program offered during the months of July and August.  Information regarding our summer program will be available during the springtime. 


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. 


Snow Cancellations
Music 101 does not follow the weather related school cancellations.  Information about our studio closing will be available after 12:00PM.  Please call the studio or check the website for updates.


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.
