Let’s Play Music, Sound Beginnings, and Suzuki Violin Classes

Registration and Tuition Payments
When you register for a Let’s Play Music or Sound Beginnings Class, you are reserving a spot in that class and the registration fee is non-refundable. Tuition is payable by the semester and is due the first day of class. You may break tuition payments up into 4 monthly payments/semester. No refunds will be given on tuition. Enrollment in the Let’s Play Music program purchases a spot in the full year of class. Enrollment in the Sound Beginnings program purchases a spot in the semester class. This means you are responsible for the payment of the full year (Let’s Play Music and Violin ) or semester (Sound Beginnings) even if you miss lessons, take weeks off, or quit in the middle of the year. If you drop out at any time during the year, you agree to pay the remaining tuition installments. (Exceptions: loss of job, severe illness, moving.)

Art Classes

Enrollment
The MAC Music and Art Center reserves the right to accept or deny enrollment in any class, lecture or workshop by any applicant. Class sizes are limited and enrollment is a first come first served basis. We strive to provide the highest quality art classes with various media for all ages. We value your feedback. If you would like to share your experience or have questions or concerns, please email the director, Tina Gosney at tina@themacmeridian.com.

Refund Policy

In the event you would like a refund, you will be eligible to receive the unused portion of your purchase, less a $10 processing fee.  Please contact registration@themacmeridian.com.

Inclement Weather
The MAC Music and Art Center is located in Meridian, Idaho and at times due to weather has found it necessary to cancel a class. If a class is canceled due to weather conditions and a student had a reservation, the reservation will be canceled and the class will not be charged to the student. You will be notified by email if a class is canceled. If students are unable to attend a reserved class due to weather conditions, the reservation will be canceled and the class will not be charged to the student.

The MAC Cancellation Policy
Occasionally The MAC Music and Art Center may have the need to cancel a class time because of low enrollment. If this is the case, a notification will be posted on the website and the class time will no longer be available for enrollment.

Student Cancellation Policy
Art classes are attended by reservation or by drop-in if space if available.  You may reserve a class time by emailing registration@themacmeridian.com or calling us at 805-0139.  If you have reserved a spot in a class and are not able to attend, please notify us within 24 hours of the scheduled class or you will still be charged for the class.

Registration Agreement Policy
I understand and agree that when I register, I have obligated myself to pay for the courses and all other charges related to this registration. If registering by bank card, I authorize The MAC to charge my account the amount noted. If I decide to cancel my registration, I understand that the date I officially withdraw will determine the amount of refund, if any, I will receive.

Inappropriate Behavior
At The MAC we strive to maintain a clean, fun, and friendly learning environment for our students. In the unfortunate event that one of our patrons chooses to behave inappropriately in word or action towards other students, instructors, or the facility, the patron will be asked to leave and not return. No refunds will be given if a student is asked to leave because of inappropriate behavior. If you feel you were treated unfairly by one of our teachers, please email the director, Tina Gosney at tina@themacmeridian.com to express your concerns.
