Registration
Please call to reserve your lesson time.  Once you have reserved a lesson time, please submit an on-line REGISTRATION FORM for each student.  A $26.50 registration fee is due at this time (one per family).  You may mail your registration cheque (payable to COMMUNITY MUSIC) to the mailing address below, or, PAY ONLINE using PayPal with your credit card. 

Lesson Fees and Payment
For beginning students, weekly half-hour lessons is the standard.  As students advance over the years, 45-minute lessons is typical.  Half-hour lessons are $26.50 ($106/month) and 45-minute lessons are $39.75 ($159/month).  The Lesson Calendar spans 9 months and has 36 weeks of lessons.   

When you have registered and booked your lesson time and start date, you will receive an email which will include a chart describing your fee options.  The chart will indicate each student’s total lesson count and fees for the year, based on their start week.  The chart will provide everything you need to know about your fees and payment options. You may pay by a series of post-dated cheques, by Interac e-transfer, or by Paypal.

Note that regularly scheduled lessons are occasionally cancelled at the instructor’s discretion, due to conflicts with statutory or school holidays. In this event, the lesson amount will be credited to your account and refunded to you if your instructor is unable to schedule a make-up lesson by the end of the instruction year.

It is very important that your fees are paid in a timely way, as we cannot hold a lesson spot if fees are not being paid.  A fee of $15.00 will be charged for NSF cheques. A late payment charge of 2% per month will be applied on amounts due past 30 days.

Please make cheques payable to: Community Music

Note: Your instructor cannot accept payment.

Missed Lessons
Instructors are not obligated to provide make-up lessons for student absences. Except in the case of extended student absences for health reasons (with proper notification), students are required to pay for all regularly scheduled lessons. 

Cancelled Lessons
If your instructor cancels a lesson throughout the year, a maximum of two lessons will be made up at the end of the instruction year, as shown on the Lesson Calendar.  When more than two lessons are cancelled, those lesson fees will be refunded at the end of the instruction year. Students who do not take advantage of scheduled make-up lessons will be considered absent and the usual policy for missed lessons will apply.

Withdrawals
After the first 8 lessons, students who cannot complete the instruction year may withdraw, without penalty, until April 1st.  After that date, a late-withdrawal fee of 4 lessons will apply for withdrawals. Withdrawal is effective one week from the date of your call or written notification (e-mail) to Community Music. Withdrawal from lessons will result in forfeiture of scheduled make-up lessons.
