Resonance Student Policy

By attending lessons you agree to abide by this policy.

Fees:   

  • Registration: There will be a registration fee of $15/student due upon enrollment with your first month of tuition. Receipt of your registration fee reserves your placement at Resonance. Lessons will not be scheduled until the first month of tuition and fees have been paid. 

  • Recitals: Resonance hosts many recitals throughout the year. Our service recitals at care centers and Veteran homes are always free. Our formal recitals, as one of our ELEVATE events, require a registration fee of $25 per performer, or enrollment in our Elevation Program. 

  • Tuition: 

    • Tuition is considered due on the 1st of each month. Because Resonance is a year round school, tuition amounts stay consistent each month and do not vary based on the number of lessons received that month (2-5 lessons). Rather, tuition is divided among the amount of lessons you will receive throughout the year (48 lessons). For further clarification see Student Attendance.

    • Late fees will be assessed per student as follows: $10 after the fifth of the month. An additional $5 will be assessed every five days thereafter. Any accounts that have not been paid in full by the last day of the month (or 30 days after the creation of the invoice) will be suspended, and assessed a suspension fee of $50 per unpaid student on the account. 

    • Tuition can be paid online through monthly automatic payments or monthly invoices. Cash or checks are also accepted. Please place payment in an envelope with your name and place it in the drop-box located in the office. Checks should be made out to Resonance. 

Student Attendance:

  • Students who are more than 10 minutes late for a lesson will not be guaranteed their lesson time.

  • Tuition will not be reimbursed for absences in private lessons, classes or other group events. 

  • No lessons will be held the week of Thanksgiving, two weeks over Christmas and New Years, and the week of Spring Break. For clarification of dates, please login to the student portal. (for questions about tuition payments on these months please see FEES)

 

Cancellation and Make-up Lesson Policy: 

We value your commitment to attend every lesson on time, but we understand there will be times that this is simply not possible.

  • In the event that you will not be able to attend a lesson, please cancel your lesson through the student portal at least 72 hours in advance in order to receive a make-up lesson credit.

  • Students may receive up to 2 make-up lesson credits per semester. (January-April)  (May-August)  (September-December)

  • It is the responsibility of the student to schedule their make-up lessons. Credits will expire after 60 days of dormancy.

  • If you are unable to cancel your lesson in time, or have maxed out your credits for the semester, we would be happy to arrange either a remote lesson (phone call or video call), or invite you to offer your lesson to a friend or family member.

 

Teacher Attendance:

  • Your lessons are a serious priority to our teachers. If circumstances prevent their attendance, you will receive a make-up lesson or a substitute teacher will be provided.
