Payment Options

Financial Obligation and Withdrawal

Students who are registered on the school-year basis assume financial obligation for both fall and spring semesters.  Late payment fee of $25 will be charged if we do not receive the payment by the due date. We charge a processing fee of $20 for any bounced checks we receive.

Lessons will be suspended if payment is more than 30 days past due. Lessons will only resume if payment is completed.  

If payment is 45 days past due, lesson slots will be opened for new students.  Parents are still liable for tuition payments until the end of registration term.  Lessons may be resumed if payment is completed and if the lesson slot is still available.

Students who wish to withdraw during contract terms will pay for the number of lessons conducted plus a $99.50 withdrawal fee.  

Cancellation of Group Class

The Moosic School reserves the right to cancel group classes due to unforeseen circumstances or insufficient enrollment.  A 48-hour advance notice will be given and students may transfer to another program or receive a full refund.  A student who gives a notification of withdrawal at least 72 hours prior to the start of a term will receive a refund minus a $25 processing fee.


Students are expected to attend all scheduled lessons and classes on time. Any time missed due to lateness will not be made up.  If a teacher is late, missed time will be made up.


Cancellations and Make-up Lessons

Missed lessons without any advance notification will not be rescheduled. Missed lessons have no cash value or credit value. In order to reschedule a lesson, you must notify of your absence at least 24 hours in advance. You are eligible for a maximum of two makeups per semester. Any lesson missed after the second absence will not be rescheduled. Make-up lesson schedules are arranged between the teacher and the parents. Please note that make-up lessons might not occur at the most convenient time as you might have normally wished for. If your teacher needs to miss a lesson, your teacher will arrange a make-up lesson or The Moosic School will arrange for a substitute teacher. A make-up lesson will not be made up if missed by students. There is no make up for recitals.


Students who miss more than 6 lessons in any semester will not be able to reserve a lesson time for the following year in our priority period for returning students. Such students may be required to wait until the start of regular registration for new students.


Inclement weather and emergency closure                                        

Cancellation of lessons due to emergencies such as inclement weather, flooding, power outage, etc will be announced through email and/or phone. Cancellation of lessons will be based on the decision made by hosting schools. If you used up two eligible makeups during the semester, lessons that are canceled due to the emergencies (as listed above) will not be rescheduled and a refund will not be given.


Students’ Expectations                                

Students are expected to bring all the materials including assignment book and music books at each lesson. Daily practice (at least 15-20mins a day, ideally the same length as your lesson length) is required to participate in our student recitals.
