Summer Policies

Summer Payment, Withdrawal and Refunds

Payment in full is required at time of registration. There is a $25 withdrawal fee per class until May 15, 2019, after which there will be no refunds or credits for summer programs or classes.

Cancellation of Classes/Ensembles

Brookline Music School reserves the right to cancel any class or ensemble due to insufficient enrollment. Refunds will be issued in the event of a cancelled class.

Absences & Make-up Lessons (Summer Session)

There are no make-ups for classes or ensembles unless the cancellation is due to a teacher absence. For private lessons, excused absences may be made up at a time mutually convenient to the teacher and the student. For lessons scheduled at or after 2:00pm, an absence is excused if the teacher or office is notified no later than 10:00am on the day of the missed lesson. For lessons scheduled before 2:00pm, the teacher must be directly notified of the absence by 9:00pm the previous night. Any lesson missed due to teacher absence will be made up or a refund will be issued.


Because of the faculty's full schedules, students who are late for a lesson cannot be guaranteed their full lesson time. Faculty will wait ten minutes for a student, after which it becomes an unexcused absence.


Please notify the office immediately of any injuries which might affect lessons. Partial refunds may be considered in cases of prolonged illness or injury.

Photo/Video Policy

Brookline Music School may photograph/videotape lessons, group classes or events for educational purposes, website and publications. If you do not wish your child or yourself to be photographed or videotaped, please check the appropriate box on the registration form.
