RENEWAL REGISTRATIONS (existing students)
Begins January 1, 2020
You MUST register and submit your $25.00 registration fee per student.
NEW STUDENTS - Please register here and CALL Diana Thomas, Owner of Joyful Sounds at 919-552-8219 or 919-868-4237
A non-refundable registration fee of $25.00 will be charged each year. PLEASE SEND PAYMENT OR PAY ONLINE AFTER REGISTERING. This registration entitles the student to participate in any of the classes offered at Joyful Sounds Academy of Music & Art.
The individual teacher determines the cost of private lessons. Payment is based on a monthly fee and
is DUE IN ADVANCE ON OR BEFORE the 25th OF THE MONTH (Example: lessons for September will be due on or before August 25th) in order to avoid a late fee of $15.00/per month. Suspension of lessons may be necessary if your account is not kept in good standing.
LATE FEES AND CHECK CHARGES
If monthly tuition payment IS NOT received on or before the 25th of the month, a late fee of $15.00 per month will be charged. There are no exceptions to this policy. There is a $20.00 charge for (NSF) non-sufficient fees for returned checks.
If a student misses a lesson due to illness or difficulty with schedule, there is no make-up lesson and no refund. If a teacher misses a lesson, that lesson will be made up. Please call your teacher to reschedule those appointments.
WRITTEN TERMINATION OF LESSONS
If termination of lessons is required, a 30 day written notice, on or before the first of the month, should be given in order to not pay an additional month of lesson fees. EXAMPLE: Stopping lessons in March, notification should be given no later than February 1. This also applies to summer months.
Joyful Sounds Academy of Music and Art closes for Labor Day, Thanksgiving Break, Christmas Break, Spring Break, Memorial Day and Independence Day in conjunction with Wake County School System. We DO NOT close for Teacher Work Days or Early Release Days. Joyful Sounds is a year-round program. Please see our closing dates on our website homepage. Please note the lessons fee is based on four lessons per month but here are some five-lesson months in the year for which you do not pay extra that help with holiday closings.
