Dear Parents and Students,

Thank you for your interest in music lessons at Carolina Academy of Music. It is our hope that this marks the beginning of a lifetime love of music and learning.

The guidelines provided on this page should help make the private music lesson experience a positive and enjoyable experience for both teachers and students. If you have any questions about anything, please feel free to contact us by phone (803)648-5150 or by using the contact form at the bottom of this page.

We welcome the opportunity to teach you and/or your child, and we look forward to making music together!








Scheduling
Scheduling is based on a semester system. The student will have fifteen lessons during fall semester and fifteen lessons during the spring semester. The final four weeks of both semesters will serve as built-in time for make-up lessons. If make-up lessons are not necessary, additional lessons may be purchased individually based on the teacher's availability. The length of the lesson is determined by many factors, including the age and level of the student, as well as affordability for the student.

Registration
Registration is easy! Just click on the link at the top of this page to reach our secure registration page.

A one-time registration fee of a $15 per student is due at the first lesson and $10 for each additional family member.



Payments
Payment is due at the beginning of the month, or you can get one free lesson by paying for the whole semester. Lesson fees not paid by the 10th of the month will be charged a $10 late fee. Checks should be made payable to Carolina Academy of Music and left in the drop box. A $20 fee will be charged for return checks.



Scholarships
A limited number of need based scholarships are available.



Missed Lessons
If a student can not attend a scheduled lesson, we request that you notify your teacher directly no less than 24 hours prior to the scheduled lesson time. Every attempt to schedule a make-up lesson will be made if the teacher has been given 24 hours notice. If a student misses a lesson and fails to notify the teacher, it will be up to the teacher as to whether to schedule a make-up lesson or to charge the student for the lesson. In the case of an emergency, such as illness, weather, unforeseen car trouble, etc., we ask that you please contact your teacher as soon as possible.

If a teacher is unavailable for a regularly scheduled lesson, the teacher will contact you directly to reschedule. If a lesson can not be arranged, the fees will be credited to the studentís account towards future lessons.



Music & Instruments
Students are responsible for purchasing their own music under the guidance of their teacher. Attaining an instrument is also the responsibility of the student.



Practice
It is essential that the student and parent understand that progress cannot take place without regular daily practice. Your teacher will determine the appropriate amount of practice time needed.
