A non-refundable yearly registration fee of $55 per student is charged on your credit card on file or included with your May invoice for check clients. Families will be charged the enrollment fee in May. Registration form and enrollment fee must be turned into the front office before a new student begins lessons.
The school term runs from June 1, 2017-June 1, 2018. Teacher holidays will include one week for Thanksgiving, two weeks for winter holidays, two weeks for summer holiday, one week for Spring Break, and a week of personal leave taken between Sept. 1, 2017 and May 25, 2018. Each student will receive 45 lessons per year.
Tuition is PREPAID FOR EACH MONTH by credit card or check. Invoices are emailed monthly to check clients. Tuition is due by the 10th of each month or semester. The year’s tuition is divided into 11.5 equal payments. While the number of lessons varies from month to month, the monthly tuition remains unchanged. A $30 late fee will be assessed for declined credit cards not corrected by the 10th of each month. $30 fee will be charged for returned checks. If an account is not paid in full after one month, the family will be notified and automatically dropped from school’s enrollment.
Two makeup lessons per year will be given with a 24-hour notice of absence. A make-up must be completed by the end of each semester. There will be an optional make-up for inclement weather closings of Gray School of Music, May 22-27, 2018. All makeups are held at the teacher’s discretion. There are no makeups for inclement weather per DISD. Makeups are not carried over to the next year.
We are a year round school with lessons continuing all year. Students are required to take eight lessons during the three month summer term from June 1 – mid-August. Scheduling is flexible to work around vacations and camps. Families who will be gone all summer or who will take less than 8 lessons will need to fill out a Withdrawal Form at front desk. You must give us notice if you will be gone during the summer. Students may elect to take more than 8 summer lessons during the summer.
Registration is for the entire year beginning June 1, 2018-June 1, 2019. If a student withdraws, they will not be refunded for lessons remaining in the month that they withdraw. They will have the opportunity to attend the lessons for which they have paid. Withdrawal forms are available at the front desk. A 5% processing fee is charged for refunds after a late notice of withdrawal.
The waiting areas are provided for your enjoyment, but quiet needs to be maintained in these areas so as not to disturb ongoing lessons. No food or drinks are permitted in the school.
CHILDREN UNDER 12
Due to facility leasing company policy no children under the age of 12 will be allowed alone outside the school. Parents need to enter the school to bring and pick up their children.
