Music Policies
Music Registration:
Registration and payment for Music Lessons is due on the 1st of the month for that month of lessons. If payment is not received, the instructor will be contacted and the student in question will not be included on the lesson list for that month.
Cancellations & Make-Up Lessons: Each instructor with McCord Gallery & Cultural Center has a specific policy approved by McCord. Students receive a copy of the instructor’s policy at the beginning of their lessons and students/parents are requested to sign off on the policy ensuring that they have been given a copy and understand the instructor’s policies.
Payment: Payments for Music Lessons are due in full on the 1st of each month. Students who do not have their payments in by the 1st of the month will be sent a reminder followed by a phone call from the McCord Office. If payment is not submitted by the end of the month the student will be removed from the music student roster. Payment may be submitted by cash, check, Visa or MasterCard. McCord Gallery & Cultural Center does offer an autopay option where student’s credit accounts are charged automatically each month. Please contact the office for more information.
Refunds: Music students participating in lessons with McCord Gallery & Cultural Center will not be offered a refund without first discussing it with the student’s primary music instructor. Students must agree to and understand the policy of their primary music instructor.
