Students are required to pay for lessons in the beginning of every scheduled month of instruction. Students may be subject to forfeiting their scheduled lessons if said payment is not made within two weeks of the pay period. Pro-rated lessons or refunds may be provided under specific circumstances.
Teachers are not authorized to handle payment unless otherwise permitted. Payments are to be made directly to the Monmouth County Music Lessons office.
Parents or Guardians
A parent or guardian must be present during the duration of all lessons for students under the age of 18 years old.
24 Hour Cancellation
24 hours notice must be given in order to cancel a lesson. If a student cancels a lesson with a 24 hour notice, make-ups will be given at times and dates within the instructor's schedule or can be arranged at any mutually agreeable time.
If the student cancels on the same day as the lesson, the lesson will be forfeited and there will be no make-up, or refund for that lesson. The payment for the cancelled lesson cannot be applied to future lessons.
No Call/No Show
If the student does not provide notice of absence it is considered a No Call/No Show. There are no make-ups or refunds for No Call/No Shows. The payment for the missed lesson cannot be applied to future lessons.
