    How do I know how many lessons my child has left?
    Everyone will receive a monthly invoice from the Community School between the 20-25th of each month to the email address provided on the registration form. The students will also receive this email to their school email accounts. This invoice will show when lessons have taken place, when lesson payments have been received along with the balance number of lessons on your child's account.

    What will my monthly invoice look like?

    Is there a fee to sign up for the Applied Music Program?
    Yes, there is a one-time annual registration fee of $100 collected at the time of registration. This fee includes the cost of the first two (2) lessons.

    What happens if there is a late payment?
    Monthly invoices will be sent to each family letting them know how many lessons are left on your account. Please try and stay at least one bundle or month ahead. Instructors will have access to the lesson sheet to know where your child stands account wise and can deny lessons with a zero or negative balance but there will be no late payment fee. Zero and/or negative balance emails will be sent each week to the parents and student. Accounts will be suspended if the negative balance reaches five (5) lessons. Payments for two (2) full bundles will be needed in order to resume taking lessons. If there is a negative balance come the end of the school year, a lock in Genesis will be placed on your student's account until payment has been made in full.
