• 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. In the case of an instructor absence, a make-up lesson will be arranged.
  • EMERGENCY LEAVE: In response to a family emergency or injury, lessons can be put on hold until they can be resumed. Any credit from that month will be applied to future lessons.
  • SUSPENSION OF LESSONS: Prior approval from both the instructor and the front desk is required. Lessons can only be suspended with the provision of a return date. Upon approval, credit and/or special billing will be given for two or more consecutive absences. When lessons are suspended, we cannot guarantee that a student’s regular time will be available upon return. Suspension of lessons requires at least two weeks’ notice.
  • SAVE MY SPOT: In the case that lessons are suspended, the regular lesson time slot can be secured by paying for the missed lessons. When doing this, the teacher will be paid for the time that the lesson would normally occur even though the student will not be in attendance.
  • DISCONTINUATION: Individual lesson cancellation requires 30 days’ written notice by submitting a 30-Day Notice of Discontinuation form to the front desk either in person or via email to admin@villamusica.org.
    • 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.
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. Refund requests received after the class has commenced will be given at the discretion of the Executive Director.
  • RETURNED CHECK FEE: There is a $30 returned check fee.
