Tuition received after the 10th of the month is considered LATE and will be assessed a $25 late fee. If you are having any issues with your account or need assistance please contact us BEFORE your tuition is due. (858) 550-8100 or billing@villamusica.org We are always available to help.

 

Missed lessons

Students pay tuition regardless of attendance. Out of courtesy to the instructor, students must give at least 24 hours’ notice before an absence, but this does not exempt the student from payment. Make-up lessons for student absences are not required, but may be given at the discretion of the teacher. Make-up lessons for instructor absences may be scheduled by the student and instructor, or a credit will be applied to the student’s account.

 

Leave of absence: In an emergency, a leave of absence may be arranged. Prior approval of both the instructor and our Student Liaison is required. If approved, credit may be given for two or more consecutive absences. Otherwise, a 30 days’ notice to the instructor and Villa Musica office is needed in a non-emergency.

Discontinuation

Villa Musica reserves the right to discontinue a student’s enrollment at any time for reasons including, but not limited to: poor attendance, non-payment of fees, lack of interest or disruptive behavior. If a student is dropped for non-payment of fees, the student may resume lessons by paying the unpaid balance.

 

Group Classes

Cancellations must be submitted by sending an email to admin@villamusica.org. Full refunds will be processed if received before the semester begins minus a $10 processing fee. Refunds received after the class has commenced will be given at the discretion of the Executive Director.

 

Individual Lessons
Individual lesson cancellation requires 30 days written notice by email to admin@villamusica.org.

Returned Check Fees: There is a $30 returned check fee.

 

Registration Fee

Villa Musica charges a $25 annual registration fee for each family. Regardless of how many family members take lessons at Villa Musica, this fee is assessed once a year per family (not per student).
