Attendance – Private Lessons
Students are allowed 1 Excused Absence every 2 months, with a week or more notice, geared towards vacations or planned leaves. A makeup is guaranteed by AMI for the Excused Absence. If a student is unable to attend a scheduled make-up for the Excused Absence, the student then revokes the make-up. If a student is sick or cannot make a schedule lesson without a week or more notice, it is at teachers discretion to reward the student with a makeup, if the teacher can accommodate. I understand that if I suspend lessons for any reason, but wish to continue lessons at a later date, AMI administration must be informed, resulting in suspension of account until returning, this does not guarantee same day/time/instructor. No make ups for cancellations within 24hrs prior to lesson.

There are no make-up’s or reimbursements for missed group classes or package lessons.

I agree that in the event my credit card becomes invalid, I will provide American Music Institute with a new valid credit card upon request, to be charged for the payment of any outstanding balances owed to American Music Institute for services rendered including future monthly payments as outline by this agreement. If credit card is not updated and tuition paid up to 14 days after due date, a late fee of 5% will be automatically added. I understand that tuition is subject to be increased to offset inflation and operational costs, which AMI will announced by email. I understand that monthly payments for tuition are nonrefundable.
Change in Lessons
I understand that if I wish to change a monthly billing fee to reflect new or discontinued AMI services that I must inform AMI administration, and those changes will reflect on my monthly billing moving forward.
If student(s) participates in AMI Recital, an additional $10 participation fee will be applied to tuition, and $25 accompanist fee, if applicable. Pictures and Videos read below.
AMI is well known for it’s Award Winning Faculty! Faculty typically teach at AMI for very long period of time, and even though on average AMI teachers have long tenure positions at AMI, on occasion, a teacher will leave. If a teacher decides to leave AMI, students/parents will be given ample notice of the teachers departure, at which point AMI will provide several other AMI teacher’s availability. Student/parent will then be able to choose from that list of AMI teachers to continue lessons with another amazing AMI faculty member.
Pictures & Videos
AMI occasionally uses photographs and videos of AMI students at lessons or events for website, social media and promotional purposes. Therefore, I understand and authorize AMI’s use of photographic or video recordings of AMI students for educational purposes on promotional material, internet, and social media.
Private Lessons: to withdraw from private lessons, you must cancel your account by the 25th of the month from American Music Institute in order to stop payments. Cancelling your account on or before the 25th of the month will end your lessons at the end of the following month, and any unattended lessons or lack of attending classes at AMI does not constitute a reason for not paying tuition or requesting a refund. I further understand that failure to attend a weekly scheduled lesson does not constitute a lack of receiving services, and only excused absences with a week or more notice (once per 2 months) will the lesson be guaranteed by AMI in the form of a rescheduled lesson on a different day/time, and that an excused absence compensation shall not be in the form of monetary reimbursement by AMI. I understand that I cannot chargeback on my credit or debit card any automatic payments that have been processed for educational services rendered at AMI, and that if I do not attend lessons I will be rightfully charged until a withdrawal form is received by AMI. In the event that I should withdraw in the proper timeline outlined above and I am still charged, I understand that I have to right to contest this charge through American Music Institute and that I waive my right to a chargeback through my bank or card issuer.
Group Classes: after classes start, there are no refunds for group classes and I understand that I waive my right to a chargeback through my bank or card issuer.
