ALL MUSIC CLASSES including Private lessons:
Enrollment in a semester course or group class indicates your commitment to attend class for the whole session. Since our program is created to provide maximum interaction and student involvement with a small student/teacher ratio, your withdrawal may require cancellation of the entire class. Out of consideration for the others in your class, we urge you to carefully consider your decision and remain in class until the end of the session. A thirty day written notice is required if you wish to withdraw from a group semester class program or private lessons, however no refunds will be issued for materials, tuition, or fees.
If the number of enrollments in the class does not meet the minimum requirement, the start date will be delayed or the class will be canceled. Any tuition paid will be refunded if the class is cancelled. 

Should you chose to cancel after registering, please carefully consider the others in the class. Your withdrawal may require cancellation of the entire class. If you withdrawal within 7 days of the start date you will be charged a $40.00 fee. If you withdrawal on or after the start date of the class, you will be subjected to pay a fee of $50.00 plus charged for however many days the student has not attended until the drop date.
