Terms & Conditions for Excite Music and Arts Academy
EXCITE MUSIC AND ARTS ACADEMY RULES AND EXPECTATIONS
1. PAYMENT REGISTRATION:
1.1 Lessons: Enrolling in any session at Excite Music & Arts Academy secures your space irrespective of attendance. Enrolling in shared or small group lessons forgoes your ability to cancel sessions during the term, as the price of the sessions is dependent on the number of students. If you choose to withdraw you are unable to receive any refund and must still pay the term in full.
1.2 Term Length: Typically there will be ten weeks of lessons per term, depending on New Zealand primary school term dates and public holidays. Public Holidays will be observed at Excite Academy.
1.3 Fee payment: Term fees are invoiced on a per term basis. All other fees are invoiced on booking. All fees are due in full before the booked sessions begin. If, for any circumstances, this is not possible the customer will need to make specific arrangements with Excite Academy, to be fully paid by the end of the current term.
1.4 Late payment: Late payment constitutes default under this agreement, and your space will not be saved in the class for the following term.
1.5 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.
1.6 Tuition fees are reviewed periodically, and at least 4 weeks notice will be given of any change in price.
2. MAKEUPS AND REFUNDS:
2.1 Make up sessions: Where there are sessions available, we offer catch up sessions for a class missed provided we are given at least 6 hours notice of absence. Please arrange this with the office. If you give less than 6 hours notice of absence or do not attend the scheduled makeup session you will still need to pay for the sessions as the space has been held for you.
2.2 Teacher absence: If the Teacher is unavailable to give a scheduled lesson and a makeup is unable to be arranged, the fee for that session will be carried forward and credited to the following term.
2.3 Note: Cancellations and refunds will result in a 50% refund to cover admin costs.
3. STUDENT HEALTH AND SAFETY
