Studio Policy

Lessons run in two sessions:

Registration/Enrollment or Re-enrollment

 

The enrollment registration fee is $25 and $15 per additional family member; the registration fee is not to exceed a total of $55. 

 

No new registration fee is required if lessons remain continuous from one session to the next and meet the sign-up deadline. A new registration fee must be paid if there is a pause or cancellation of lessons at any time.

 

The registration fee includes enrollment for any classes offered at The Foundation Music Center.

Tuition Payment & Schedule

Succeed Music Academy reserves the right to cancel or change the class schedule or teachers at any time. Classes are subject to availability and scheduling.

Each student will be set up with a login to our student portal. Multiple students in the same household will be assigned to one family account. So that we can start setting up your student portal account, you must register online as a new student (link found on our home page). Your credit card information will be saved on a secure network and used for auto payments each month.

 

Scheduling Lessons

Lessons are scheduled at the same weekly time slot. Please arrange any change in schedule directly with your teacher. Students are expected to attend every week except for when the studio is closed on major holidays or indicated in your student portal calendar.

 

Auto Pay Students

Tuition is due on the 1st of the month for the upcoming month of lessons. Auto pay billing will have until the 5th of the month to update payment card in case it has been declined. A 10% late fee will be added to payments on the 6th.

 

Non-Auto Pay Students

If you opt out of auto pay, the due date is on the 25th of the month, prior to the 1st. A 10% late fee will be charged to your account on the 26th if we have not yet received your payment. If there are more than 3 late payments made within a session, a 3% surcharge may be added to your monthly tuition. Checks can be dropped off or mailed to 12526 High Bluff Drive, #300 San Diego, CA 92130

 

New Students

The first month may be prorated depending on when the start date of lessons. The following month will be billed in accordance to the regular student policy.

Cancel Lessons

Cancellations must be made at least 24 hours in advance to receive a make up credit; otherwise, your class will be forfeited. Cancellations must be made through the calendar on your student account. This will automatically notify your teacher and the office. Cancellation by phone or email will not award your account with a make up lesson. 

 

If your teacher is unable to teach, a substitute will be arranged. However, if your class was cancelled without the option of a substitute, you may either take a makeup lesson or contact the office to request a refund credit on your next invoice.

 

Makeup Lessons

Unscheduled make up lessons will be added to your student profile account as make up credits. All make ups must be scheduled within the current session. Arrange your make ups directly with your teacher. Outstanding make up lessons expire after the session has ended. All school session make up classes must be completed by the last day of the school session.

Student Conduct

Please be respectful of other students and the use of studio equipment. Disrespectful comments or destructive behavior will not be tolerated. Food and drink are NOT allowed inside the studio. Please eat outside and dispose of food and trash in outside bins.

 

For the safety of our students, we ask that students under the age of 12 be picked up from our studio waiting area by a parent or guardian. Please do not let your child run into the parking lot before or after the lesson.

Holidays Breaks

Students will not be billed for major holidays such as, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. We continue to hold lessons on most Monday holidays and during the weeks of major holidays.

Terminating Lessons

To terminate lessons and cancel tuition prior to the end of a session, a 30 day written notice to *contact@succeedmusicacademy.com is required as well as a notice to your teacher. There are no refunds for tuition or cancelled lessons. Any make up lessons must be used prior to terminating lesson tuition or else they will be forfeited.
