Fees and Payment
An annual registration fee of $30 per student applies to cover administration, insurance and music licensing costs. This must be paid on commencement of classes.
All fees are due before you start your first class. Fees not paid within the first week of term will incur a $25 late fee due and are payable immediately. Any eligible discounts will also be removed from the account. If full tuition AND late fee is not paid within 30 days of due date then class restrictions will apply.
Private lesson fees must be paid at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled lesson. Any changes made to private lessons must be done with at least 24 hours notice (in writing via email to email@example.com, or phone 9388 6970 and advise reception staff), otherwise full payment will still apply for the lesson.
Accounts not settled within a reasonable timeframe will be forwarded to a collection agency. All costs incurred with collection agencies are payable by the account holder.
Refunds are not available. A credit may be allowed under exceptional circumstances but must be approved and signed off by management beforehand. If you have any difficulty paying your fees, please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss.
General Class Etiquette
Please give the studio a call or quick email if you are planning to be absent.
If you have an injury, you MUST let your teacher know. Any injury incurred on our premises must be reported immediately so urgent medical attention is sought if necessary.
Please arrive 10-15mins before class to start stretching by yourself to ensure you are ready to begin on time. Classes will start on time and will not wait for latecomers.
Please name all your belongings. Lost property will be kept at the studio for 2 weeks and will be discarded if unnamed and unclaimed.
Any changes to class enrolments and personal details must be put in writing to reception or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Teachers are subject to change at the discretion of WAPS. It is assumed that students will continue with the same classes after each term. If this is not the case, please advise the studio in writing.
Term to term re-enrolment is automatic. Students will be automatically re-enrolled into the same classes as the previous term, with an invoice and enrollment summary sent out during the school holidays to confirm. If you do not wish to be re-enrolled or want to make changes to your classes, you must advise management staff in writing.
Re-enrolment from one year to the next is not automatic and must be completed by the student once the next year’s timetable is released.
