Terms & Conditions for Excite Music and Arts Academy
EXCITE MUSIC AND ARTS ACADEMY RULES AND EXPECTATIONS
1. PAYMENT REGISTRATION:
1.1 Lessons: Enrolling in Excite Music & Arts Academy Lessons secures a particular slot of the teacher’s time for the whole term, irrespective of attendance. Payment is on a per term basis and is expected by the date due on the invoice.
1.2 Term Length: Typically there will be between eight and eleven lessons per term, depending on school term dates and public holidays.
1.3 Fee payment: All fees are due in full before classes start for the term. If, for any circumstances, this is not possible the customer will need to make specific arrangements with Excite Academy. All fees outstanding after week three of the term will incur a $10 admin fee.
1.4 Late payment: Late payment constitutes default under this agreement, and your space will not be saved in the class.
1.5 Family discount: A 10% discount applies to families with three or more children enrolled with us.
1.6 Discontinued lessons: Teachers also reserve the right to discontinue any student for reasons including but not limited to, inappropriate behaviour, lack of parental support, non-payment of fees and sporadic attendance.
1.7 Tuition fees are reviewed annually and at least one term's notice will be given of any change in price.
2.1 Make up sessions: Where there are classes available, we offer one catch up session per term for a class missed in that term. Please arrange this with the office. If you miss more than one session during the term due to sickness or holidays, you will still need to pay for the sessions as the space has been held for you. If, for any circumstances, attendance will be irregular for valid reasons, the customer will need to make specific arrangements with Excite Academy.
2.2 Teacher absence: If the Teacher is unavailable to give any scheduled lesson (e.g. due to sickness) the fee for that session will be carried forward and credited to the following term.
