All automatic credit card charges will stop after the one-month period notice. Music Together programs will be pro-rated for the classes taken.
Session Only Cancellations: $30 cancellation fee if withdrawing before starting date of session (Sept 16; Jan 6; March 28; June 15.) No refunds once session begins. No exceptions. Credit towards a future session may be granted at the discretion of the director in exceptional circumstances.
Class Cancellations: Sometimes classes don’t fill up the way we would like. ESWS Music Together reserves the right to cancel classes due to low enrollment. In such a case, a refund for unused classes will be given. In the event that a charge is made to a student account in error, ESWS Music Together will refund the amount within 60 days by returning the amount to the account billed, or by check, at the discretion of the director.
Make-up Classes: Families are entitled to unlimited make-up classes. For session only students makeups do not carry over to future sessions. For members, makeups are good for the entire school year. All makeups/drop-ins must be scheduled online via our Makeup Scheduler so we don’t overcrowd classes. No refunds are given for missed classes.
Music Together Materials: Music materials (songbook, CD/download code) are not returnable once they have been received. If a family chooses to withdraw they will be charged a $42 curriculum fee and may keep their materials.
Parents’ Responsibility to be aware of Dates and Events: It is the responsibility of the parent to be aware of all session dates and holidays. ESWS Music Together will post all such notices on our website and in the Family Portal. We will send notices/email/text messages home, when appropriate. It is the parents’ responsibility to regularly check these media to ensure they are informed. It is the responsibility of the parents to inform the school of any address or telephone number change.
Extreme Weather or Unexpected Interruption of Classes: If ESWS Music Together must cancel classes due to extreme weather or events beyond our control such as power outages, the missed classes will be added on where possible. No refunds due to these reasons will be given.
