Small Group and Private Lesson Attendance Policies
Your plan is recurring and will be charged monthly or yearly depending on your choice at checkout. If at the end of the 12 months we have less than 46 classes due to teacher sickness, snow days, or school cancellations, or you stop your plan before attending 46 classes, and a balance remains on your account, you will be refunded within 30-60 days to the credit card you used to sign up.
There are no refunds for missed classes due to student absences. So, be sure to get the most out of the program by making sure your little musician attends each and every week.
Media Consent Modifications
If you decide to change your media consent option, you can do so at any time. This will not change the decision you made previously for the dates for which the prior valid media release applies. It will, however, change how we process media for your child from the date we receive your instructions and into the future. For example, you chose option C on 1/1/2015 and then changed your consent to option A on 6/2/15. Any pictures we took from 1/1/15 – 6/1/15 may be used on our website or on our signs, but after 6/1/15 we would not be able to use the photos on our website or on our signs.
Media Consent Options: Below is a reproduction of the Media Consent options presented to you upon your registration for the program for your records and future reference*. Your rights and consent with regard to photographs and video of your child are governed by your choice.
[Initial] ______Option A (share with me and the Music for Life community only): I want to receive photographs and videos of my child participating in the Music for Life Program! I do not, however, want the general public including visitors to our website and social media pages, to be able to view photos and videos in which my child appears. For this purpose, I permit Music for Life and its staff and professional videographers, photographers and editors, to photograph and record video of my child while participating in the program and to store, edit and share such photographs and videos of my child with Music for Life staff and parents, including internal training videos that are not published outside of the Music for Life program.
[Initial] _____Option B (do not share photos or videos): I do not wish to receive photographs or videos of my child participating in the Music for Life program. Due to the collective nature of the activities involved in the Music for Life program, your child may inadvertently be photographed or recorded. Music for Life agrees that it will make commercially reasonable efforts to delete any portions of photographs or videos in which your child appears as soon as practicable after being detected, and/or to blur your child’s features (and all recognizable audio eliminated). You agree that any such inadvertent capturing of your child’s image shall not be deemed to be an invasion of privacy and you agree not to make any claim against the Music for Life in connection therewith.
[Initial] _____Option C (share with me and with others): I want to receive photographs and videos of my child participating in the Music for Life program! I also want others, including other parents and visitors to the Music for Life website and social media pages, to be able to view photographs and videos in which my child appears participating in the program. For this purpose, I permit Music for Life, its staff and professional videographers, photographers and editors, to photograph and record video of my child participating in the program and to store, edit, and display such photographs and videos in connection with the Music for Life program, for instance, on the Music for Life website and social media pages, in printed materials such as brochures, in public relations and otherwise for promotional and educational purposes. IF YOU CHOOSE THIS OPTION, YOU ARE ALSO CONSENTING TO ALL OF THE TERMS OF THE MUSIC FOR LIFE ‘MEDIA RELEASE’ FORM THE TERMS OF WHICH ARE THE FOLLOWING:
