Taber Music School Policy


effective date:09/01/2014



Welcome to Taber Music School! For a successful and enjoyable experience, please read the following School Policy.





A completed enrolment form is needed with full tuition payment before instruction may begin. Full tuition payment may be paid either by post-dated cheques or in one lump sum.


The annual registration fee for music lessons is $40 per family. This fee is due at the time of registration and is non-refundable.




Our school year runs from September - June, with the option of taking lessons in the summer months as well. New students are welcome to begin lessons at any time during our school year.


Your weekly lesson time will be determined at the time of registration. As Taber Music School is a growing school with limited space, we cannot guarantee that a different lesson time will be available, should a scheduling conflict arise during the year. Please plan accordingly and schedule things around your given lesson time.




Missed Private Lessons: Make-up lessons are offered at the discretion of the teacher and the school, who will take into consideration the circumstances surrounding the absence in question. Neither the teacher nor the school holds an obligation to provide a make-up lesson. Note: as a courtesy to teachers and other students, please stay home if ill!


Missed Group Lessons: The teacher will provide homework assignments for a lesson missed. Due to the nature of the program, missed group lessons cannot be made up.


Cancelled Lessons: All lessons missed due to a teacher’s absence will be made up or provided by a substitute teacher. No credits will be given.




Taber Music School reserves the right to adjust the length of lesson time at any point in the year should the size of the group class decrease as follows:


 Size of Group   

      Tuition Fee

   Length of Lesson 


  students group rate 

     60 min lesson
