STUDENT POLICY AGREEMENT


General 


The term “Student” as used throughout this Agreement, includes the individual enrolled in or intended to be enrolled in a lesson program offered by Beaumont Community Music Ltd., that individual’s parent(s) or guardian(s) and the heirs or executors of any of them.


This Agreement shall remain in effect until terminated in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement.


Instruction Year


The instruction year consists of 36 lessons - see Lesson Calendar. Throughout the year, a maximum two recitals may be substituted for regular lessons, at the instructor's discretion. Recitals are important educational tools. Learning to perform for others are important aspects of music lessons.


Lesson Length

For beginning students, weekly half-hour lessons is the standard. As students advance over the years, 45-minute lessons are typical.


Fees 

$110/month (36 - 30min lessons over 9 months)

$165/month (36 - 45min lessons over 9 months) 

 

When you have registered and booked your lesson time and start date, you will receive an email to confirm your time slot.

Fees may be paid by Interac e-Transfer, PayPal, or a series of post-dated cheques.

Cheques made out to Beaumont Community Music LTD

If there is a statutory holiday, it will be left up to the instructor's discretion whether to cancel the lesson. In the event of a cancellation, the lesson amount will be credited to your account and refunded to you if your instructor is unable to schedule a make-up lesson by the end of the instruction year.

It is very important that your fees are paid in a timely way, as we cannot hold a lesson spot if fees are not being paid.

Note: Your instructor cannot accept payment.

 

Payment

Lessons must be paid for monthly, in advance. All pre-authorized payments will be charged or cashed monthly on the first (1) day of each month. All e-transfers must be made monthly on the first (1) day of each month or earlier. 

 

Missed Payment

It is very important that your fees are paid in a timely way, as we cannot hold a lesson spot if fees are not being paid.  A fee of $50.00 will be charged for NSF cheques. A late payment charge of 2% per month will be applied on amounts due past 30 days.

Late for Lesson

If the student arrives late for a lesson, that lesson will not be extended but will end at the regular scheduled time.


Missed Lessons 

Instructors are not obligated to provide make-up lessons for student absences. Students are required to pay for all regularly scheduled lessons. Exceptions are made only for extended student absences for health reasons, with proper notification. 

 

If there is a statutory holiday that falls between Tuesday through Friday (ie. Remembrance Day), it will be left up to the instructor's discretion whether to cancel the lesson. In the event of cancellation, the lesson amount will be credited to your account and refunded to you if your instructor is unable to schedule a make-up lesson by the end of the instruction year.

 

Due to COVID-19 - we will allow students to miss a lesson if they have developed COVID-19 symptoms or have come into contact with someone with presumed or confirmed COVID-19. The lesson will be completed within 2 weeks of the missed lesson date online at a time decided between the instructor and the student/parent. If an online lesson has not been completed within 2 weeks, our regular missed lesson policy will apply.

 


Cancelled Lessons


If your instructor cancels a lesson throughout the year, a maximum of two lessons will be made up at the end of the instruction year, in the make-up Weeks at the end of the Lesson Calendar. When more than two lessons are cancelled, those lesson fees will be refunded at the end of the instruction year. Students who do not take advantage of scheduled make-up lessons will be considered absent and the usual policy for missed lessons will apply.


Withdrawals

After the first 8 lessons, students who cannot complete the instruction year may withdraw, without penalty, until April 1st. After that date, a late-withdrawal fee of 4 lessons will apply for withdrawals. Withdrawal is effective in the week after contacting us.

Termination of Student

Beaumont Community Music Ltd., may terminate this agreement and cease the student’s participation in lessons immediately for any reason whatsoever. Such termination will be effective immediately. Beaumont Community Music Ltd. shall not be liable for any damages or loss claimed by the student. 

 

Beaumont Community Music Ltd. states that the following acts or omissions of the Student will result in termination without refund: failure to abide by the terms and conditions of this Agreement, repeated failure to attend lessons (three consecutive weeks), theft, vandalism, use of inappropriate language, fighting, defiance or disrespect towards Beaumont Community Music Ltd. contractors, staff and/or students.
