Policy Agreement


Enrollment in this program is a minimum of 6 consecutive months. 30 days written notice is required to terminate coaching. You may pause you subscription one time for up to 3 months. Please email [email protected] to give written notice.


If you must reschedule your Band Aid School of Music Camp session, please be aware there is a $25 rescheduling fee per camper per change. If you must cancel your camp session, please call 512-730-0592. The price of each camp included a non-refundable $40 processing fee. However, the remainder of your camp fees will be refunded based on the following timeline:

Cancel 6 week prior to 1st day of selected session: full refund.

Cancel 4 weeks prior to 1st day of selected session: 80% refund.

Cancel 2 weeks prior to 1st day of selected session: 20% refund.

Cancel less than 2 weeks prior to 1st day of selected session: no refund.

You may substitute another child of the same age.

We encourage all parents to drop off their children to the camp session on time, but if an early drop-off is necessary, an extra $25 per day per child will be charged to compensate the teachers. We will not accept drop-offs more than 30 minutes before the camp’s start time. For special circumstances please email [email protected].



Your $30 non-refundable enrollment fee is collected upon submission of your enrollment form. Tuition is due on the first of each month and is paid by automatic draft from your credit card or bank account. A late fee of $25.00 is charged for accounts not paid on the first of each month. Accounts not paid in full by the 14th of the month will incur an additional charge of $25 each week until your account is paid in full.

An account is considered overdue on the day the account’s payment method on file is declined. Overdue account balances for students aged 4-17 being paid by someone other than their legal guardian will have 30 days to bring their account to good standing. If the account balance becomes 45 days overdue, the student forfeits their scheduled lesson time. Overdue account balances for students aged 18+ being paid by someone other than the student will have 14 days to bring their account to good standing. If the account balance becomes 21 days overdue, the student forfeits their scheduled lesson time.

Students are responsible for providing their own lesson materials. If this becomes a hindrance to the progress of the student, a $25 materials fee will be charged and the teacher will provide materials for the lessons.

A $14 administration fee will be charged each month. Since we offer group make-up classes for lessons missed with proper notice, there will be no refunds for missed lessons. Instead you will receive a make-up credit to be used at your convenience.

Each student agrees to weekly lessons. Students who need an exception to this policy can request one in writing to [email protected].

Tuition – Performance Classes and Showcases

Each semester all students participate in 1 Performance Class, 1 Dress Rehearsal and 1 Showcase. These are required classes for all students. Even if a student is not ready to perform, they learn a great deal by attending, observing and giving feedback to performers. The tuition for performance classes, dress rehearsals and showcases is $50 each. You can expect these to happen in March, May, October and December, but schedules may change year to year.

Attendance Policy

Our Makeup policies are designed to give you more control over your music education. It saves you time, eliminates the hassle of rescheduling, and allows you to share the gift of music with others.

When you give 24 hours notice to cancel a weekly lesson you have Three Options.

1. Pass the Baton: You can have someone else take your lesson for the day. Share the joy of music with a friend, sibling, parent or neighbor!
2. Zoom In: Join the lesson via Zoom if you can’t make it in person. Your lesson time is yours to use, and now distance won’t hold you back.
3. Your teacher will send you the lesson plan, notes, and practice instructions for your next lesson. You won’t miss out on learning, because your teacher will provide you with a video summary of your missed lesson so you know what to practice and keep creating momentum.

Performance classes, dress rehearsals, and showcases cannot be made up outside of the designated times offered for each event.

We ask an extra level of commitment from our band students. Band students will not receive credits for missed sessions, since their absence effects the other members of the band. Please do not ask to make up missed lessons without proper notice.

You will not be charged for or expected to attend/make up the following days: New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, Easter Sunday, 4th of July, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day. If the teacher misses a lesson, a make-up lesson will be offered to you as soon as possible within the semester in which it was missed.

Practice Requirement

Students are encouraged to practice and to be prepared for each lesson. This avoids repeating the same lesson twice and increases the progress of each student. The amount of practice will be contracted between each teacher and student.

Student-Teacher Communication

Please let us know immediately of any problems you are experiencing. Our goal is to create accomplished, confident performing artists, and this often takes several years of hard work from student, teacher and parents. It is your responsibility to keep us informed of any difficulties the student might be experiencing at home. Open and direct communication is of utmost importance.

Teacher Agreement with Band Aid School of Music

Our teachers are accomplished and experienced musicians. In addition, Band Aid School of Music invests a great deal of time and expense training our teachers to be the best teachers they can be. By checking the box on the enrollment form, you agree not to solicit for employment or employ any Band Aid School of Music personnel for 2 years following the expiration of this agreement, unless it is through this school. If you have needs that are not being met by your lessons, please contact us to discuss other options. We would be happy to work with you to develop the best possible learning environment for your personal needs.

Termination of Lessons

If you must terminate or miss multiple lessons after your 3 month commitment is met, we require you to submit a 30-day written notice of termination. Please notify your teacher and the admin staff. This transition time is especially important for young students who need more time to gain closure with their mentor/teacher. During those 30 days, we ask that both teacher and student create a positive and respectful ending to the artistic experience. Full payment of the 30-day period is expected whether or not the student attends the lessons.


If you wish to speak with a teacher you may do so by phone, email or during your lesson time. Teaching hours generally begin as early as noon and extend as late as 9:00 pm. If you wish to speak to a teacher, please communicate with them directly. The teacher will return your communication as soon as possible. The best time is usually at the beginning or end of your scheduled lesson time.

Parent Expectations

Although it is our intention to inspire and engage each student immediately, younger students often take longer to get into a rhythm of practicing at home and quickly improving. By checking the box on the enrollment form, you’re committing to allowing your young student(s) to find the joy of music in their own rhythm and time, and to do your best to provide support without applying unnecessary pressure.

Media Permissions

Band Aid takes your privacy and the privacy of your child very seriously. We do from time to time use images, audio and video of students for promotional purposes. We do not use student’s full name in our promotions. If you would prefer your child be excluded from our promotions, please email us at [email protected] with the title “Exclude From Promotions”.

By attending any of our programs you are agreeing to be bound by the terms of this Agreement. These policies are subject to change at the discretion of Band Aid School of Music.
