Tuition is fully refunded if a student withdraws before the first lesson.

The student (or parent/guardian) is financially responsible for all classes and lessons as stated in “Registration, Tuition, and Fees.” Students who enroll for private lessons and classes designated as “year-long” are registered for the entire time period of the lessons or classes and are responsible for the financial commitment. Students who enroll for classes designated 4. 8. 15 or 16 classes are registered for the entire time period of the classes and are responsible for the financial commitment.

In the case of prolonged illness (accompanied with a doctor’s note) or move, refunds are pro-rated as stated below.

All withdrawal requests must be made in writing to the Executive Director for review by the Advisory Board. Please understand that verbal requests from students, parents, or faculty cannot be accepted.
