Lesson Policies and Payment Information

Monthly Tuition Payments The monthly tuition due date is the 21st of each month as listed in the coupon book. Payments will be considered late after the 28th. Your credit card will be charged by the 15th of the month if the outstanding balance has not been received. Please make checks payable to The Georgia Academy of Music. Payments may be made in the office or sent to GAM, P.O. Box 250347 Atlanta, GA. 30325. There is a $20 fee for all returned checks.

Monthly Tuition Payment Installments There are 34 weeks of scheduled lessons for all students for the school year (August 27- May 26) regardless of which day of the week the student is scheduled. We have factored out holidays in this count so that all lesson days will total 34 weeks by the end of the school year. (The Academy calendar is located on the lesson confirmation sheet.) Due to holidays, the fact that we start the end of August, and since the number of weeks that fall in each month varies, some months will have more than 4 weeks of lessons and some less. For example, some lesson days will have had 5 weeks of lessons by the end of September. The monthly installments cover the yearly total. We have divided these payments into 9 installments. The first installment is paid at the time of registration. Eight payments are full payments and the last payment is a half tuition payment. This is due to the fact that 34 weeks does not divide evenly. Payment for these lessons is due in advance before service are rendered before each upcoming month.

Missed Lesson Policy There are no makeups for missed lessons except for the following circumstances:

  1. Westminster is closed for snow or some other emergency.

  2. The teacher is absent.

  3. The student has a religious holiday, school music function, or college entrance exam.

  4. The student has a serious illness or injury and must miss more than 3 weeks.

Termination Policy Two weeks notice is required to terminate private lessons. The office must be notified directly rather than a notice given to a teacher.

Credit Card Payments If you would like to pay by Mastercard or Visa rather than by the enclosed coupon book, please stop by the office and make your payment arrangements. There is a 3% surcharge to your monthly payment should you elect to pay by credit card.

Music Books The Academy provides the service of ordering music books for the students. The teachers place the order, we deliver it and then will send a bill to you for the purchased books. Music books and supplies are not covered by tuition payments.
