Policies

Registration

New student registration is rolling throughout the school year. There is an annual registration fee of $30 charged at the time of registration. To secure and finalize your registration, a $100 non-refundable deposit is necessary. These funds will be applied to the session’s invoice.

Scheduling

Lessons are scheduled on a first-come, first-scheduled basis, while keeping student location intro account.

Tuition

Tuition is charged per session. Credit cards, cash and checks are acceptable forms of payment and may be made out to Go Go Allegro.

Lessons are non-refundable and non-transferable.

A late fee of $30 will be applied to any tuition not paid by the second lesson of the term

Lesson Times

Lesson times are reserved on a weekly basis for each student, so make-ups lessons will only be offered if it is a medical or family emergency. A missed lesson due to an emergency will not be refunded. If your missed lesson falls into this emergency category you will have the opportunity to schedule a make-up lesson during the same session it was missed. Travel bans due to weather will not be made up.

Performances

Performance opportunities will be held throughout the school year and participation is strongly encouraged but not required. These recitals are at no additional charge and are included in the session rate. Performance dates scheduled mid year will take priority over regularly scheduled lessons.

Lesson Start and End Times

Plan on being available 10-15 minutes before and/or after your lesson time as these are in-home lessons and timing is dependent on traffic, road conditions and inclement weather.  Your lesson time begins when the instructor enters your home If you are not home or prepared to answer your door at your scheduled lesson time, you will only be given the remaining portion of your scheduled lesson time.

Re-enrollment

Re-enrollment is automatic unless the withdrawal form is filled out by November for the spring session. If you wish to change your scheduled time in between sessions, you must request a change in schedule for the next session. Schedule changes in the middle of sessions are not possible.

Inclement Weather

Lessons will not be canceled even if local schools are canceled. Lessons will be held as normal regardless of weather unless you receive an email. Lessons may be held via FaceTime in the case of inclement weather.

Parking

For safety reasons, it is required that you have adequate parking in your driveway and a clear walkway up to your door. If this is not available, you may have to forfeit your lesson. This is especially important during snow where on-street parking may not be available. If there is a preferred entrance (other than your front door) during snow, please communicate this with your instructor or administration.

Supervision

A parent or legal guardian must be on site for the duration of every lesson. Your instructor will not continue a lesson if there is no parent or guardian in the home and no refund or credit will be granted. Instructors will not provide supervision beyond the time limits of the scheduled lesson.

Non-Solicitation

You agree not to directly or indirectly solicit your instructor for lessons and acknowledge that such action constitutes a breach of this agreement and that your instructor is prevented from conducting lessons for you independently of Go Go Allegro School of Music.

Liability

You release Go Go Allegro School of Music, our Instructors, officers, directors, any parent and subsidiary or other affiliated entities, and its Instructors, from any and all liability and responsibility in any case of personal injury, property damage or loss, injury, accident, or misconduct. In no event shall we be liable to you for indirect, incidental, special, or consequential damages, which are hereby excluded by agreement of the parties regardless of whether such damages were foreseeable or whether either of us has been advised of the possibility of such damages.

Media

The student and the students’ parent/guardian(s) consent to and authorize Go Go Allegro School of Music to capture and use video-audio recordings and photographic images of the student and/or his or her musical performance or quoted statements in print, electronic, or online media, for educational and promotional purposes, and without compensation.
