Monthly tuition is due before the first lesson of every month. Payments can be submitted via: Check (Payable to No Strings Attached), Money Order & PayPal. A late charge of $10 will be added after a 7 day grace period after the payment due date. Lessons will not be continued with students with an outstanding payment due.
A $25 semester fee ($5 a month) will be issued at the beginning of each semester. This will cover operational expenses, recitals, rewards, copies, etc. The semester being August 1- December 31, and January 1-May 31 The semester fee will be added to the monthly tuition with a note from NSA Music Studio.
As a common courtesy, parents and/or students are required to contact No Strings Attached (NSA) via phone, email or text 48 hours in advance of any absence. Please note: monthly tuition will not be prorated or credited for absences for any reason if notice is or is not given within the 48 hour window. Students will be allotted 2 make-up lessons per semester; the semesters being August 1st through December 31st, and January 1st through May 31st. The amount of allotted make-up lessons will not roll over to the next semester. However, two make-up lessons will be given during or at the end of each semester. Make-up lessons will be given by any of our NSA teachers. In the event a student is absent for any make-up lesson, the lesson will be forfeited.
If a student is absent and no contact is made to NSA, it is considered a "no show" and lesson payment will be forfeited.
Students are expected to arrive for lessons on time. This means neither too early or too late. In the case of tardiness, a student’s lesson will end at the scheduled time. Unfortunately, this means they will not receive their full lesson.
In the event an instructor is unable to attend a lesson, a make-up lesson will be arranged for the student by an NSA teacher. In the event a student is absent for a make-up lesson, the lesson will be forfeited.
STUDENT DROP OFF/ PICK UP (FOR MINORS)
Parents are responsible for ensuring the student arrives and enters into the lesson on time. Parent/Guardian and/or older sibling must be present for the lesson.
PARENTS IN THE LESSON ROOM
Parents are allowed in the lesson room, however, this is not a time to co-teach with any of our teachers. We encourage you to quietly take notes. Any questions for the teacher should be asked during your child's lesson time or via email or phone. Please do not ask questions after the lesson as we must respect the time of the student coming in after you.
For discontinuing lessons, 30 days advance notice is required. No portion of the tuition paid will be refunded or prorated.
Parents are responsible for holding child accountable to practice at least 3-4 times per week. Teacher will give instructions on how long practice must be which varies from ages 4 thru 18.
NSA will hold a fall and spring recital. Students are encouraged to participate in the recitals. This is your child's opportunity to shine.
Parents/Students must notify No Strings Attached Music Studio as soon as possible of any change in address, home/work telephone or any other contact information required to notify the student of schedule changes.
