The KAWAI SCHOOL OF MUSIC school year runsAugust 20, 2018 – May 25, 2019 for a total of 36 lessons. Lessons will not be offered during the holidays listed on the school calendar. However, it is highly recommended that all students take a minimum of 4 private lessons in the summer to reserve their spot in the fall.
A non-refundable yearly registration fee of $35.00 per student will be charged to cover administrative costs. A Registration Form and registration fee must be turned into the front office before a new student begins lessons.
Tuition is due the first of the month by automatic debit, credit card or PayPal (?). Tuition is divided into 10 equal payments August-May. While the number of lessons varies from month to month, the monthly tuition remains unchanged. A $30 late fee will be assessed for any payment not received by the 10th of each month. If an account is not paid in full after one month, the family will be notified and automatically dropped from the school’s enrollment.
Full refunds, including the registration fee, will be given in case of insufficient enrollments that result in cancellation of a group class.
There is no long term contract. Students may enroll at any time as long as there is availability. To discontinue lessons and suspend automatic charges prior to the end of the school year, please contact the Director of the Kawai School of Music by filling out a Withdrawal Form 30 days before the next scheduled lesson.
Our instructors do not always have the time or flexibility to offer private makeup lessons. Instead, makeup lessons will be offered in a group or master class format. These Make-Up Classes are scheduled throughout the semester. Please sign up at the Front Desk. There will be no makeup lessons for group classes. However, the student may attend a similar class, if available. This may be arranged at the Front Desk and is not guaranteed.
In the event a teacher is absent, The KSM will provide a highly qualified substitute who will ensure continuity of the lesson.
All children under the age of 12 must be escorted into the KSM by a responsible adult and remain with the responsible adult until the child is with the instructor for their lesson. All children who are not yet of age to drive themselves, a responsible adult may drop-off and pick-up the student in a timely manner. The KSM is not responsible for the student before or after their assigned lesson time.
No food, drink (except for bottled water) is allowed inside the KSM.
Any photos, audio or video of students or families at the KSM facilities or events may be used in promotional publications, social media pages or press releases. There will be no compensation for the release. However, parents may choose to exempt their children from media publications by notifying the Director of KMS in writing prior to or at the time of registration.
