Policies and Procedures
Registration: A completed registration form is required before starting any lessons through Jump Into Music.
Payment: The cost of music lessons is based on our sliding scale. At the end of each month, your child’s teacher will turn in a record of lessons, from which an invoice will be generated and sent to you via email. You may pay by check or cash through payment envelopes provided for you, or you may choose to pay by direct bank transfer to our system, which costs nothing to you or us. Instructions for paying by bank transfer will be included in the email with your monthly invoice.
Financial aid: To qualify for financial assistance, please provide us with a letter from your child’s school documenting participation in the free or reduced-price lunch program. This documentation must be provided before receiving lowered rates for lessons, and must be provided on an annual basis.
Liability waiver: You hereby authorize all medical, surgical, diagnostic, and hospital procedures as may be performed or prescribed by a treating licensed physician for your child if you cannot be reached in an emergency. You also agree that neither you nor your child will bring any claims of any kind against Jump Into Music, its instructors, contractors, operators, volunteers, staff, board members, or sponsors as a result of any injuries, expenses, or damages that you or your child may suffer in connection with your child’s participation in any program, activity, or event associated with Jump Into Music, whether such claims are known, unknown, or may arise in the future. You also understand that no one associated with Jump Into Music is authorized to alter, modify or waive any of the terms of this agreement in any way without providing you with prior notice.
Attendance: Parents/guardians are expected to be at the church during their child’s lesson. Exception is provided for mature high school students only, and also for those students enrolled in BASE. Parents must notify their child’s teacher at least 24 hours in advance of any absence. A no-show or cancellation with less than 24 hours notice will be charged as an unexcused absence and payment is required as if the lesson took place. Please arrive on time or early for lessons. If you are more than fifteen (15) minutes late for your child’s scheduled lesson time you will be charged with an unexcused absence. More than three (3) unexcused absences every three months will be grounds for dismissal without refund. Make-up lessons are not required unless proper notification is given and are at the discretion of the teacher. Teacher cancellations will be made up by arrangement between the student and teacher.
Discontinuation: Jump Into Music reserves the right to discontinue a student at any time for poor attendance, non-payment of fees, lack of interest, or disruptive behavior. If the student is discontinued for non-payment of fees, he or she may be reinstated when the account balance is paid in full.
Media release: Unless you mark the “opt out” line on the Jump Into Music registration form, you authorize Jump Into Music to use your child’s and your family’s name, picture, photograph, portrait, visual likeness, or voice in all forms and media in all manners, including photo, film, audio and video representations in any promotional materials and any material used towards Jump Into Music’s exempt purposes and business activities, and waive any right to inspect or approve the finished product that may be created in connection therewith. Jump Into Music is released from any defamation or other claims that may arise out of the above-described materials.
Inclement weather policy: Jump Into Music strives to make the safest and most appropriate decisions for our students, staff and patrons based on the available information. We will make every effort to contact you if lessons must be cancelled due to weather.
Notice of Non-Discrimination: Jump Into Music’s programs and services reflect the cultural diversity of our community. We do not discriminate on the basis of religion, race, color, ethnicity, sex, gender identity/expression, national origin, sexual orientation, age, disability, or veteran status.
