Andy Hymel's School of Music Tuition Policy
Enrollment: Registration fee is $25.00 per student and due every January in order to maintain enrollment. We accept enrollment throughout the year, tuition will be adjusted based on the time of registration. If a student registers after October 1st the registration fee will be applied to the next calendar year’s enrollment period.
Tuition: Tuition covers a 30 minute lesson, once a week, equaling four lessons per month. Tuition is to be paid no later than the 10th of each month. A $10.00 late fee will be applied to all late payments. Failure to pay on time will forfeit your opportunity to reschedule missed lessons. During the month of December, the school will be closed for 2 weeks. These lessons are made up in the months that have 5 weeks. Any additional 5 week months will be used for rescheduling lessons.
Absenses: It is the student’s responsibility to contact the school to request rescheduling if he/she cannot attend their scheduled lesson time. Rescheduling must be within 30 days of the absence. Failure to do so results in an unexcused absence. It will be at the school and teacher(s) discretion to allow for a reschedule based on the circumstances for the absence. Please inform the school and teacher of extended absences in advance to discuss alternate lesson times. If a student will miss most of a month, payment for the following month is required to reserve your time slot. The student will have to re-register if payment is not made. Your teacher may need to arrange a group lesson in order to accommodate missed lessons. If a student misses more than two consecutive lessons without any communication with the school, the student may lose their assigned time slot and may be required to re-register upon return. Reminder: To ensure rescheduling, tuition payments must be made on time.
School Closures: If a student’s scheduled lesson time is on a day the school will be closed, your teacher will discuss rescheduling the time with you.
Payment Methods: Cash, check or money order.
NSF Checks: All checks returned NSF will have a $30.00 charge added upon repayment.
