Policy

Studying music and the arts can be a very exciting time for students and their families.  Our hope is that your time spent at Blue Oceans will be memorable and life-changing.  Pursuant to this, there are a few things that will help ensure a positive and enjoyable experience for everyone.

Tuition:  All new students pay a non-refundable registration fee of $50.  Tuition is monthly, and is due on the 1st day of the month.  Payment should be made at the last session of the current month. Method of payment includes credit/debit card, checks, and cash.  Payments received after the 1st day of the month will be subject to a $20 late fee per student.   

Policy:  Students pay monthly tuition based on how many lessons they receive during any given month.  Please budget for the months that differ.  The studio will be closed one week for Spring Break, one week for Thanksgiving, and two weeks during the Christmas holidays.  Studies at Blue Oceans Music are continuous year around.

Materials & Supplies:  Blue Oceans will confirm with students in advance of any purchases of additional books and materials that are needed.  Students are responsible for all books and materials.

Cancellations:  Any lessons/classes that are cancelled/missed due to the instructor not being on time and present, will be made up within 14 days.  Lessons that are missed without at least a 48-hour notification from the student will not be made up.  It is the student's responsibility to make prior arrangements for any missed lessons.

Lesson Times:  Tardiness is not justification for going over and into the next student's lesson time.  We will make every effort to stay on schedule and respect everyone's time.  Please remain in the lobby/lounge area before and after your lesson.  Younger children should remain quiet and never be left unattended.

Notification:  A 30-day written notice should be made if a student decides to discontinue their studies with Blue Oceans Music.  Adhering to this policy will help keep the student ahead of others on any waiting lists should they decide to begin their studies again, along with securing any discounts they are currently receiving.  Failure to notify in advance will result in an increase of tuition once studies are resumed.

Scholarships and special discounts are available at Blue Oceans Music.  Please direct all inquiries to info@blueoceansmusic.com or (352) 735-2583 (BLUE).  We are thrilled you have chosen to study with us at Blue Oceans Music!
