The parties hereby agree to the following:


Tuition

Tuition is billed monthly* and is due by the 25th day of the preceding month (i.e. August tuition is due by July 25th, and so forth). East Valley School of Music is open year-round, but takes 1 week off for Spring Break in March, Summer Break in July, Fall Break in October, and Winter Break in December. Tuition is prorated during the first month of enrollment and for the number of classes scheduled each month. Group classes typically break in the summer for June and July, and in December for the holidays. No tuition is charged for these months.

                *Monthly billing does not apply for students enrolled in classes with a fixed period, as there is a one-time payment for tuition.

Please indicate that you agree with the Tuition Rates:

 


Payments

East Valley School of Music requires tuition payments to be collected automatically. Tuition payment must be received in full before the first lesson in the new month, and East Valley School of Music reserves the right to report unpaid tuition payments to a collection agency. There is a $20 late fee if tuition is not received by the last day of the month. Customers are required to fill out the Payment Method Form attached to this contract in order to enroll in lessons. Payment methods are listed below:

  • Bank Account: Customer provides a bank account and routing number. This method is preferable due to periodic changes in credit/debit cards, such as expired, cancelled, or declined cards, and clients who sign up with bank account payments will receive a $15 discount off their first payment, but must continue with this payment method for a period of at least 6 months or the $15 discount is forfeit.
  • Credit/Debit Card: Customer maintains current credit or debit card information on file. If a card is declined, invalid, or expired, East Valley School of Music will contact customer.

Please indicate that you agree with the Payment Policies:

 


Communication

East Valley School of Music sends out periodic emails with important announcements and updates. Please read these emails to stay informed and do not unsubscribe from our email list. Upon enrolling in lessons, you will be given your instructor’s contact information, including phone number and email address. If you need to cancel a lesson, please contact your instructor directly.

Missed Lessons

East Valley School of Music does not give refunds for missed lessons. Students who miss a lesson for any reason will have the opportunity to attend a group make-up class that will be held by their instructor once a month.

Waiting Area & Lesson Observation

Children under the age of 9 must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Please keep children in the waiting area and do not leave children unattended in the hallways. While in the waiting area, please keep noise to a minimum. Parents are welcome to sit in on lessons at any time, but siblings, infants, and friends of students are not permitted to sit in on lessons as it is a distraction to both the student and the instructor and compromises the learning environment. Anyone other than parents or the student taking the lesson will be asked to leave the room.
