PRIVATE LESSON REGISTRATION AND TUITION PAYMENT

The yearly cost for instrument lessons for the 2020-2021 school year is $900, plus a $30 non-refundable registration fee. This fee is based on 30 lessons throughout the year at $30/ lesson. The yearly fee may be paid in full, by trimester, or it can be divided into nine equal payments of $100/month starting in September through May. The registration fee and the first month’s tuition are due with this contract. The remaining eight payments will be applied to your monthly tuition bill starting on October 1st. All monthly payments must be made via automatic checking withdrawal. If you are already setup for monthly auto-debit withdrawals for tuition, check the Monthly-Automated Debit line below and sign this form to approve the new withdrawal amount. If you are not set up on auto-debit you can sign up by contacting the finance office at 626 914-1849 x1161 or at jpierce@foothillchristian.org. Lessons begin the week of September 8th, 2020. Registration deadline is August 31. 

Students are considered enrolled by this contract for the entire year.  If a student withdraws for any reason, the charges are pro-rated on a trimester basis.  The school will not require payment for the entire year, but parents must pay for the entire trimester in which the child is enrolled.  All withdrawals must be made in writing and shall be effective at the end of the trimester.  Please contact the finance office if you have any questions regarding payments.

LESSON SCHEDULING

Lesson times are scheduled by the private lesson teacher. Once the student is registered, your assigned lesson teacher will contact you to schedule a weekly lesson time. Please email Aimee Knight (aknight@foothillchristian.org) for questions about orchestra lesson scheduling or Doris Kohler (dkohler@foothillchristian.org) for questions about piano lesson scheduling.

INSTRUMENT RENTAL PROGRAM

FCS has instruments available to students for a modest rental fee. Instruments will be provided to students based upon availability. 

STUDENT CANCELLATIONS

If a student will miss a lesson for any reason, the parent/guardian must contact the lesson teacher via email 24 hours in advance to reschedule. Students are allotted one makeup lesson per trimester for excused absences only. If the parent/guardian does not contact the teacher 24 hours prior to the lesson time, the absence will be considered unexcused and cannot be made up.

MATERIALS AND RECITALS

All practice books and materials needed for the lessons are the responsibility of the parents to purchase. The teacher will provide a list of required materials. Students must bring their materials to each session. There will also be one or more performance opportunities for students to play at recitals during the school year.
