All tuition and fees are to be paid in full at registration
as detailed on the registration
form. The minimum registration period for private
lessons is six weeks for any program. For new students, tuition
must be submitted at least two days prior to starting a program
or class. The student is considered enrolled for a program
once the tuition and registration form have been received.
For renewals, tuition must be submitted by the last lesson
of each program to insure your slot for the next program.

Attendance and Make-Up Policy
At the beginning of any program, specific days and times for
lessons are agreed upon between parents/guardians, students
and the school. If the student is late to a lesson, any make-up
time given at the end of the lesson will be at the schools
discretion. Regular attendance is expected. As soon as possible
the student should notify the management office (not the teacher)
of any absence for any reason. This does not exempt the student
from payment as contracted. Cancellations within 24 hours
of the lesson will be forfeited. Make-up lessons are permitted
during the program, but only at the teacher's discretion and
availability. Make-up lessons are only available within seven
days of the canceled lesson and must be requested by the student.
Make-up lessons are only added to the end of the program if
the teacher cannot provide a make-up lesson within the seven
day period. If a teacher is absent, either a qualified substitute
teacher will be provided or a make-up lesson will be scheduled
during the program at the teachers discretion. Make-up lessons
cannot be rescheduled once they are booked. If the student
misses a scheduled make-up lesson, that lesson will be forfeited.
Boulder Drum Studio will close when Boulder Valley School
District closes due to inclement weather. BDS will place a
message on the school's website and the telephone answering
system regarding storm cancellations. Make-up lessons may
be rescheduled at the discretion and availability of the teacher.
Students are considered registered for an assigned program
until the management office receives and approves a written
request to withdraw. Notification of withdrawal from
lessons or classes must be received in writing by the management
office and is effective from the date the written withdrawal
is received, not the date of the last lesson attended. Teacher
notification is not considered formal notice of withdrawal.
A students program will be canceled if two or more lessons
are missed without written notification and the remainder
of the tuition fees will not be refunded.
If a student discontinues instruction before the third lesson
of a program, a refund will be given for 75% of the remaining
tuition. Refunds will not be issued after the third
class or lesson except under extraordinary circumstances with
written request. Registration fees are non-refundable.
In the event of prolonged absence due to an emergency, written
requests for refunds will be considered on a case by case
basis by the management office.
