Payment Methods

Cash or check only. No credit cards. There is a $25 charge for all returned checks.  

Cancellations/Withdrawals/Class Changes

Payments are non-refundable. If by October 12th, the student does not wish to continue, he/she may complete the first eleven classes and have no further commitment as to the 2nd and 3rd installments.  When the second payment is made, it is assumed the student will complete the 9-month course. At the discretion of the school, classes dropped mid-year for medical reasons may be given credit towards future lessons.  There is a $15.00 charge for class changes, which will be permitted at the school's discretion.

No “make-up” lessons except for cancellations made by Tenafly Arts.  Please call for emergency cancellations.                     

Class Placement

Tenafly Arts endeavors to place all children in appropriate classes in order to maintain the integrity of each class.  At the school’s discretion, a student may be required to switch to a class more suitable to that student’s level.  If the student does not wish to make the requested change, the student may instead receive a pro-rated refund for the remainder of the session.  Certain advanced classes require a minimum of 2 or 3 classes per week.

Timeliness/Attendance

Classes will start on time.  Those coming late may attend at the teacher’s discretion.  Full participation is required.
