Bay Area Strings Academy Policies

REGISTRATION AND TUITION: A completed registration form and the class fee are due to secure your student’s spot in a class. There is a $30 fee for returned checks, failed charges, or any other insufficient funds payment.

ABSENCES / MAKE-UP LESSONS: Credits are not normally given for lessons missed by pupils without 24 hours notice. In the case of long-term illness, or prior notice of unavoidable or compulsory school events, consideration may be given to credits. If practice falls on a holiday, a reduced price will be charged at registration or billing.

TEACHER CANCELLATIONS: In the event the instructor must cancel a lesson, the instructor will contact the student and family and arrange for a make-up lesson or a substitute teacher. If neither can be arranged, a credit for the missed lesson will be applied.

REFUNDS / WITHDRAWAL: There are no refunds for group classes, ensembles, workshops/master classes or vacation programs.

USE OF PHOTOGRAPHS AND VIDEOS: Bay Area Strings Academy may take photographs of classes, lessons, recitals and events for promotional use in on-line and print materials. It is our policy not to include the names of children in any captions. Please check opt-out if you do NOT wish your child to appear in any publicity material photos, videos, etc. that may be used for promotional purposes, and opt-in if you do.
