New Student Registration
New Student Registration
All new students must provide contact information and sign our policies. Please read and sign the Terms & Conditions & Liability Release and fill in your information below:
Terms & Conditions
In consideration for using Acme Hall Studios’ services, I agree to the following Terms & Conditions:
“Private lessons” are scheduled on a semester basis. Students commit to 16 lessons per semester (6 lessons for summer session) and are expected to attend all lesson dates listed in Acme’s calendar, which is available on Acme’s website.
A non-refundable deposit is required to reserve a lesson slot for the semester. This deposit will be used toward the total cost of tuition. If lessons are scheduled less than 30 days prior to the start of the semester, tuition is due upon registration. Cancellations made more than 30 days in advance of the start of the semester will receive a full refund of all tuition paid for the lessons, minus the non-refundable deposit. Cancellations made less than 30 days before the start of the semester will not receive a refund and the full amount paid will be forfeited. A tuition credit for lost tuition may be given for the following semester at Acme’s sole discretion and on a case by case basis.
If there is space available, students may schedule lessons after the semester has already begun. The lessons will begin at a date agreed upon by the student and Acme and will continue until the end of that semester. The cost of the lessons will be prorated, based on the number of lessons left in the semester. If lessons are scheduled after the semester has begun, full prorated tuition is due upon registration.
Should a student need to cancel a particular lesson during the semester, cancellations must be made at least 24 hours in advance. Lessons may be cancelled only by contacting the individual teacher directly, via e-mail, and cc’ing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to space constraints and scheduling considerations, Acme does not require instructors to make up lessons missed by students because of absences or cancellations. There are no refunds for lessons or classes missed due to student absence. Make up lessons may be scheduled at the discretion of the instructor and occur either during the predetermined “Make Up Week” at the end of the semester or at other times, space permitting. A lesson cancelled less than 24 hours in advance cannot be rescheduled. Because of the very short length of summer session, there is no Make Up Week available.
Lessons expire at the end of the semester. Unused lessons do not roll over. Unused lessons expire once the semester has concluded.
Workshops & Ensembles
Acme offers various group workshops. Because of the very limited size of these workshops, a registration in a workshop is final. There are no refunds or credits available for a cancellation.
A non-refundable deposit is required to reserve a spot in an ensemble. This deposit will be used toward the total cost of tuition. Cancellations made less than 30 days before the start of the ensemble’s first meeting will not receive a refund and the full amount paid will be forfeited.
Acme reserves the right to cancel a workshop or ensemble due to insufficient enrollment. All workshop or ensemble cancellations will be announced prior to the class or ensemble’s first meeting. If a workshop or ensemble is cancelled, all enrolled students will receive a full refund of all tuition paid.
Acme is not responsible for personal property that is either lost or damaged on our premises.
Unless Acme indicates otherwise, students are responsible for providing their own music books, sheet music, instruments, and materials.
Acme follows NYC Public School policy with regard to weather cancellations. Should public schools close due to inclement weather, our classes will be cancelled as well. Semester extensions due to these cancellations will be advised to you via email.
Our studios contain electrical sound equipment including amps, speakers, and other hardware. Acme will take reasonable precautions to ensure that all equipment is secured and safe. Acme will manage all equipment, and connect and disconnect all appliances during lessons and rehearsals. Students are not to handle any equipment without supervision. Food and beverages are prohibited in our studios.
Your email address and personal information will be used by Acme for its business purposes only and will not be shared with any third parties.
