Not that much fun, but still important.
All payments are processed by pre-authorized credit cards, we do not accept checks or cash for lessons. One on one lessons are billed four lessons at a time. The tuition depends on the teacher and length of the lessons. Most of our teachers charge between $20-30 for half hour lessons and between $35-55 for hour long lessons. Tuition is never prorated for missed lessons. Tuition does not include any retail teaching materials such as books, instruments, shoes, tights, props, etc.
Regular attendance at lessons is crucial for students to progress with their lessons. Excessive absences will be determined by each teacher and are not acceptable. Families with excessive absences and/or tardiness may be asked to resume lessons when their schedules settle.
Cancellations, Makeups, Refunds, & Prorating
We appreciate as much notice as possible for lesson cancellations and will work with you to reschedule lessons within reason; however, Manuel Creative Arts Academy does not refund or prorate lesson fees for any lesson missed by students for any reason. (This means you will be charged for your weekly lesson unless other arrangements are made with your teacher). The required notice for make-ups will be determined by each teacher and makeups will be scheduled at their discretion based on their availability.
To discontinue lessons and to discontinue charges to your account, please notify your teacher at least 14 days before your recurring billing date. We do not issue refunds for unused portions of lessons.
Manuel Creative Arts Academy operates year round and does not close for the summer. We are happy to offer makeups for our students, please schedule these with your instructor in advance. If you are taking a month off for vacation and want to resume the next month, your payment is still due to reserve your lesson space. In order to stop payment you will need to complete the withdrawal form above.
