Tuition and Registration: The annual registration fee is $25.00 for each student. There is a $10.00 material fee per quarter and a recital fee of $35.00 for each student. Recitals are scheduled in June and December yearly. The tuition fee is based on enrollment, not attendance.
Dandan Performing Arts Center offers open enrollment for private lessons; therefore, you may register for classes at any time. If a student begins lessons in the middle of the quarter, we will pro-rate for the number of lessons remaining before the end of the current quarter.
The tuition and registration fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.
Cancellation fee: $ 100.00
Payments: Full payment is due at the beginning of the quarter. We offer class roll-over and automatic billing.
Late fees: We have a late payment fee policy of $15.00 per student. It is the parent's responsibility to ensure we have been provided a valid credit, debit card, or ACH information if enrolled in automatic billing.
Delinquent Accounts: The Dandan Performing Arts Center reserves the right to suspend or discontinue instruction of any student who is delinquent in fulfilling his/her financial obligations at any time.
Refunds and returns: There are no refunds on tuition fees, material fees and registration, no returns or refunds on retail merchandise.
Attendance policy: Regular and punctual attendance is one of the best investments students can have in their music education. Communication about presence is an essential part of the teacher-student relationship if a student is going to be absent for a lesson; he or she must notify the studio 24-hours before their lesson by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Teaching artists are not required to make up student absences.
The majority of the Dandan Performing Arts Center's teaching artists are independent contractors. If the student doesn't show up for their lesson, the teacher is still committed to the school for your appointment time. Hence, lessons are paid even when the students don't show up. All our teaching artists are dedicated and committed to the success of your child.
Student Illness Guidelines: While we encourage students to attend all of their lessons, classes, and ensembles, an ill student will not perform well and may expose others to their illnesses. If a student is sick enough to stay at home from school, please do not send your child to their music lessons.
Tardy Arrival: Students arriving late will not have their lesson time extended. Students arriving late by more than half of their lesson period will be considered absent, and their teaching artist will be dismissed. If the teaching artist is late or absent, a substitute teaching artist may be provided, or a makeup lesson will be scheduled.
Missed lessons: Students pay tuition regardless of their attendance. Students must send an email to email@example.com before any planned or unplanned absence, but this does not exempt the student from payment. Teaching artists are not required to make up missed lessons caused by student absences. Teaching artists may make-up lessons caused by their absences, or a lesson credit will be applied to the student's account. The lesson credit has to be used within 30 days.
Discontinuation: The Dandan Performing Arts Center faculty reserves the right to discontinue a student's enrollment at any time for reasons including, but not limited to, poor attendance, non-payment of fees, lack of interest, or disruptive behavior. If a student is dropped for non-payment of fees, the student might be able to continue the quarter by paying the unpaid balance.
Termination of lessons: Tuition is NON-REFUNDABLE. If you terminate your lesson prior to a 30 day notice, you will still be charged for the remainder of the lessons. We require that you notify us in writing 30 days prior to the termination of the student's lesson.
Proficiency and Performance: Performance opportunities are scheduled throughout the year as a chance to share the student's hard work and accomplishments with family and friends. As performing is a vital part of music education, recital, rehearsal attendance and involvement is strongly recommended
In addition to the feedback, students regularly receive from their teachers; it is crucial that they get input and suggestions from other music professionals as well. For this purpose, Dandan Performing Arts Center schedules proficiency evaluation once a year.
Dismissal: The Dandan Performing Arts Center reserves the right to dismiss any student due to frequent absences, disciplinary problems, overdue tuition payments, or parental noncompliance with policies.
Inclement weather: The studio may close due to weather or unforeseen events, students are invited for special make-ups, which could include private or group lessons.
Holiday Closures: The holiday and break closures is posted on the website calendar. No makeup lessons are given for holiday closures. You will be notified in advance of any exceptions.
Student Drop-off: When bringing your child to music lessons, make sure you have signed in, and your child makes it to their lesson, with the teacher present. Do not drop your child off in the parking lot or leave them unattended in the waiting room. Neither the Dandan Performing Arts Center nor its teachers are responsible for unsupervised students.
Child Safety: For your child's safety, children will not be allowed to wait in the reception area unattended. It is expected that everyone waits quietly as not to disturb ongoing lessons. Please do not drop off students more than 10 minutes before lesson time and pick them up promptly. The Dandan Performing Arts Center faculty and staff do not supervise children waiting in the reception area before and after classes/lessons. No food or drinks are permitted during the lesson. No roughhousing is permitted. Behavior that is in any way, unruly or disruptive to other students is unacceptable.
Release: Any photographs, audio, or videos of students or families on the Dandan Performing Arts Center facilities and events may be used in promotional publications, websites, or press releases. There will be no compensation for the release.
Non-Discrimination Policies: The Dandan Performing Arts Center complies with all laws prohibiting discrimination in the conduct of its operations and programs. Dandan Performing Arts Center admits students of any religion, gender, race, color, sexual orientation, socioeconomic standing, national and ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the studio.
Policy changes: The Dandan Performing Arts Center reserves the right to change policies, fees, or waivers at any time.
