Oregon Music Academy (OMA) is a year-round music school. When you enroll you are reserving a “seat” during a set day and time for lessons each week. Each year consists of 48 weekly lessons plus 2 concerts for a total of 50 activities. The annual tuition is broken into 12 equal monthly payments for your convenience. Some months may have more or less activities. Tuition will remain the same each month regardless of the number activities in that particular month. You are not charged for lessons during the 4 weeks per year OMA is closed: 1 week for fall break, 2 weeks for winter break,1 week for spring break.
Automatic Payment Plan
Automatic payment with debit or credit card is required for OMA enrollment. For your safety and protection, we do not accept personal checks or cash. By providing credit/debit card account information, you are accepting enrollment in OMA’s automatic payment plan for the cardholder. You are authorizing OMA to charge the card number on file for tuition, materials, and fees today and on the 1st of each month for your balance due until you complete the withdrawal process. Rates are subject to change. OMA will provide at least 30 days notice of any tuition change. If OMA is unable to process automatic payment using your provided credit card information, your account will be considered past due and will be charged a $30 late fee. If payment is not made, you agree to pay the costs associated with collecting this debt.
You may cancel your account and stop automatic payments at any time by notifying us at office@OregonMusicAcademy.com and then completing a short online Withdrawal Form at least 30 days in advance of your desired end date. Any unused make-up lessons will be forfeited when you withdraw. OMA does not provide refunds or credits for absences or unused lessons. Missing your lessons is not considered notice of withdrawal.
Cancellation by OMA
OMA reserves the right to expel a student at any time for poor attendance, negative behavior, or habitual lack of preparation with no refund. OMA also reserves the right to expel students and their parents for negative behavior of the parent with no refund.
When you enroll in one of our programs (classes, lessons, workshops, etc.) you are reserving one of a limited number of “seats”. Because your reservation blocks other interested students from reserving the same seat, we do not offer refunds for any reason.
OMA may cancel classes due to inclement weather or other extenuating circumstances. OMA will provide a substitute teacher or a make up lesson depending on the situation.
We are your first option for billing disputes. You will provide Oregon Music Academy with 30 days to attempt settlement of any billing dispute before disputing with any third-party credit/debit card company or bank.
Should we receive a chargeback from a third-party credit/debit card company or bank on your behalf before we have been given a chance to resolve the issue, we have the right to collect on the rendered services and any fees associated with those disputes.
Regardless of the outcome of the chargeback, we retain the right to collect on any rendered services or fees that are due. We will submit any disputed amounts to a collection agency.
Absences with more than 8 hour notice
Please contact the front desk if you will be absent. OMA will reschedule a lesson provided you call or email at least 8 hours in advance. OMA may, at its discretion, reschedule that lesson with another instructor. If you cannot attend any of the make up options offered to you, you will forfeit the opportunity to make it up. All makeup lessons must occur within 30 days of the lesson that was missed. OMA does not reschedule “rescheduled lessons”.
Absences with less than 8 hour notice
If you contact us with less than 8 hours notice, OMA will not provide a make up lesson for the absence. No credits or refunds will be provided for missed lessons.
From time to time, our instructors will be ill or need to take time off. When this occurs and they need to miss a lesson, a substitute teacher will be provided. We have a way of making sure your substitute teacher is updated on where you left off at your last lesson to make sure your lessons continue to run smoothly.
A $30 rescheduling fee may be charged per occurance for any excessive rescheduling and lesson day/time changes.
