Important Conservatory Policies Regarding Registration, Fees, and Payment
We accept VISA, MasterCard, Discover, Cash (for the exact amount), and personal checks. Payments must be made, or special arrangements for payment must be made prior to lessons commencing. Students will not be allowed to begin classes before payment and the registration form is received.
Late Payments will be subject to a $20.00 late fee Students with outstanding balances are not eligible to participate in the scholarship auditions, apply for financial aid, or register for subsequent semesters.
There is an annual registration fee of $40 per family studying Fall and/or Spring and Summer Semesters. If starting in the Summer only, the Registration fee is $20.00. THIS FEE IS NON-REFUNDABLE.
Missed Lessons/Makeup Lessons
Notify your instructor at least 24 hours in advance for planned absences.
Students are charged for all lessons or classes for which they register, including those missed through student absence. Missing a lesson does not exempt the student from payment.
For students enrolled for the entire semester, the Conservatory requires teachers to make up one lesson per semester per student when missed by the student for emergency reasons or illness only. This makeup lesson must be arranged with your teacher. Any lessons or classes missed by a teacher will be made up at a mutually convenient time.
PLEASE NOTE: If a student misses an appointed makeup lesson, it will not be rescheduled.
There are no make-ups for missed lessons for students enrolled in the introductory 8-week session or during the Summer semester. There are no make-ups for missed group classes. Switching or swapping lesson times is sometimes possible when a student knows in advance that a lesson will be missed. A rescheduled lesson is not considered a missed lesson.
Registration is based on a semester commitment
There are no refunds for ensembles or classes
Refunds for private lessons are only permitted for moving out of the area or extended illness, AND only according to the specific refund schedule.
Refund requests must be submitted to the Executive Director in writing.
The registration fee is Non-Refundable.
Purchase of Music
All students are expected to purchase the music for their classes or lessons. Ensembles will generally provide the music used.
The safety of our students is our primary concern. The Conservatory does not automatically close in the event that local public and/or private schools are dismissed due to inclement weather. In these cases, please call the Registrar's Office at 715.845.6279. We will make every effort call students' families in the event that their class or lesson has been cancelled
