Intergenerational Music:  Refunds available prior to class start date only, and will incur a $25 cancellation fee.  There are no refunds on or after class start date (regardless of attendance) so please schedule your class carefully.  Tuition may be applied to an alternate group program should you wish to make a switch, and in cases of emergency or other extenuating circumstances, a credit toward a future term (minus a $25 fee) may be granted at Director's discretion.  Please scroll down for snow closure policies.

Big Kids Group Music classes & Theatre classes:  Refunds are available prior to class start date only, minus a $25 cancellation fee, so please schedule your class carefully.  There are no refunds on or after class start date (regardless of attendance), however, for withdrawals due to an emergency or other extenuating circumstance, a credit (minus a $25 fee) may be applied to a future or alternate registration.  All teacher absences will be made up at end of term, or a refund will be granted.  Please scroll down for snow closure policies.

Private in-studio tuition payment policies:  All lesson fees are due by first lesson day (minus any deposit paid), or a monthly Installment plan can be set up at time of registration.  We're sorry, we  cannot accept monthly payments by check.  

Private lesson withdrawals/refunds:
Fall & Spring terms: Prorated refund of all remaining lessons is available for withdrawals taking place no later than the fourth scheduled lesson day of each semester, fall & spring (this includes trial lesson, and is regardless of attendance).

We require a 24 hours cancellation notice when withdrawing, or your next lesson will be charged for.  No refunds will be granted for withdrawals taking place beyond fourth scheduled lesson day, and failure to attend lessons does not release student from responsibility to pay lesson fees for the remainder of the semester. 

Private lesson make-up policy: We guarantee that one student absence* per 16-week term will be made up at the end of each semester (fall & spring). All teacher absences will be made up at the end of the term, or a refund will be issued.  There are 2 weeks directly following the end of each term, for needed student and teacher makeups.  Please note: we will not refund for makeup days due to a student's inability to attend.  

*For students of Janna Bruene:  Janna teaches on both Wednesdays and Saturdays; therefore, additional make-up lessons may be available throughout the term if there is an open lesson slot and students are able to attend on alternate day.  Ask us for details.

Snow Cancellations: In the case of extreme weather conditions, please check in with CMCJP at either 617.524.1784, or on the website at jamaicaplainmusic.com where information will be posted regarding center closures.
Please note: One snow day per term will be made up at end of term for all programs. Snow cancellations beyond one are not made up or refunded.
