Early Childhood Studio Policy

Priority Registration:
To guarantee your spot in the studio at Arizona Music Academy, there is a non-refundable $25.00 annual registration fee paid every July 31st. New student registration fees will be collected before the first scheduled lesson. 

Tuition/Payment Policy:

Tuition is based on the lesson type and the number of weeks in that session.  Tuition is collected 3 weeks prior to the next session starting.  Cash, Check, VISA, MasterCard, Discover, AMEX and are all accepted forms of payment.  The office/desk must be notified of all changes and cancellations.  No refunds will be given after the first lesson.  If a student no shows for 2 weeks and has not paid for the session, lessons are considered forfeited and they will be removed from the schedule.  Any returned check will be charged a $30 returned check fee. 

Code of Conduct:
Students are expected to show respect to their teacher and classmates at all times while they are in our studio.  Any students showing actions which may cause harm or injury to others will be asked to sit out their scheduled class time.  A parent/teacher meeting will then take place and a decision will be made as to the action we as a company must take, up to and including dismissal from our studio. 

First Lesson Needs:
Students are required to have books for the Music for Little Mozarts program.  Practice is not required for this program but is encouraged.  Students in the birth thru age 3 classes are recommended to purchase the appropriate pack for their age and class.  These books and packs are available at AMA.  

Instructor Absence:
In the event that an AMA instructor is not available to teach their normal schedule, AMA will provide a qualified substitute teacher. Lessons will proceed as normal and any student refusing lessons is still responsible for payment of that lesson. If a substitute teacher is not available, AMA will issue a credit for that lesson on the next session’s bill.
