Fall Registration

For new students  there is $50 non-refundable deposit which will be applied to the first month's tuition.

10 post-dated cheques for monthly payments must be submitted on or before the first class, payable to 'Christine's Music'.  Some months will have more or less weeks than the others; therefore the monthly equal payment is based on annual tuition divided by 10 month.  Any NSF payments will be subject to a fee of $25.00.  E-Transfer (set on the 1st of each month. 5% penalty if not paid within 5 days), cash (to be paid on the first lesson of each month. 5% penalty if not paid by the second week)  
One month’s written notice must be provided in the case of withdrawal and you will be charged an additional month’s tuition. You can choose whether or not you wish to attend for that remaining month.  No refunds will be given for cancellations that occur on or after April 1 as it will be difficult to fill in the spot near summer.

No credits or refunds are granted for missed classes.

The studio reserves the right to adjust tuition payment schedule every year.

Summer Registration

2 post-dated cheques for monthly payments must be submitted on or before the summer term begins., E-Transfer (set on the 1st of each month.  5% penalty if not paid within 5 days), cash (to be paid on the first lesson of each month.  5% penalty if not paid by the second week).
