Students enrolled for individual lessons are expected to make their own arrangements for an instrument for daily practice at home. Pianos, guitars and all strings, wind, brass, and percussion instruments may be rented at reasonable cost through area music stores.
Scheduled Lessons and Classes
Students must make every effort to be on time for all classes and lessons. In deference to subsequent students and classes, all lessons/classes will end at the scheduled time.
All lessons must be paid for whether taken or missed. There is no refund of tuition for the student's absence nor are the teachers obligated to make up a lesson missed by student. Lessons cancelled due to faculty absence or building closure due to poor weather conditions will be rescheduled.
Withdrawals and Refund
Written notice of withdrawal must be submitted to the Director of the Music Institute before any student will be considered for a refund. The date on which the written withdrawal notice is postmarked, not the last day of attendance, is considered as the official date of withdrawal. Tuition refunds will be considered based on number of lessons given up to the date of official withdrawal including student absences. No refunds are given after the fifth lesson; however, a JCC credit will be considered. Scholarship students will forfeit scholarship money if they discontinue lessons for any reason during the year. A $25 administration fee will be charged for any withdrawal, refund or credit.
The Music Institute is located at the Bernikow Jewish Community Center. Music instruction is also available at our Avis/South Shore and Aberlin/North Shore locations. Please call for more information. * Click the Powered by Google link for larger maps & directions
