Assessments & Placement Evaluations

  • Students enrolling in Neurologic Music Therapy and Adaptive Music Lessons must be assessed prior to receiving services. NMT and AML participants will be reassessed periodically to determine goal and objective benchmarks and/or completion.
  • All Private Lesson students are required to  participate in a placement evaluation prior to starting lessons, and annually.
  • Students enrolling in group Music Education classes are encouraged to schedule a placement evaluation prior to the start of class, but are not required to do so. 
  • Students with exceptional needs who are enrolling in group Music Education classes are required to complete a placement evaluation and assessment to be sure that the selected class is the best fit; some exceptional students require accommodations that cannot be made in all group classes.

Class Materials

Each private lesson, therapy program, or group class requires a specific set of materials.  These materials are not provided by or paid for by the studio and may include but are not limited to: 

  • instruments and accessories 
  • sheet music
  • text books
  • notebooks, etc. 

After registration is complete and tuition has been paid, the student will receive a personalized list of class materials to purchase, based on his or her chosen course(s) of study.

Missed Lessons or Classes

If you know you're going to miss a class or lesson, please be considerate and give as much advance notice of the absence as possible. No-shows (missing without giving notice) will be noted, and after three no-shows, a student's enrollment may be cancelled.  Refunds are not given for no-shows.

Missed payments or returned payments

Students whose tuition is overdue will be notified of suspension of classes and lessons until the payment is successfully made.

Returned payments or NSF transactions will result in suspended classes and lessons until the payment is successfully made. 

Repeated  non-payment or late payment of tuition may result in termination of the student's enrollment for the remainder of the year. Returning students with a history of non-payment or late payment will be required to prepay the entire term's tuition in order to enroll.
