When enrolling in lessons or classes for the school year, students are automatically enrolled through the end of the year in June. If you need to stop before June, you can do so at any time with 30 days notice. Please see "Cancellation Policies" below for more details.

Sign up for lessons or classes from September-June, and your first lesson is free! Tuition begins with the second lesson so, if you decide not to continue after the first lesson, just let us know. We will cancel the registration, and you will not be billed at all.

10-Month Session (September-June)

Tuition covers weekly lessons—except holidays—from the time you enroll through the end of the school year in June. Students enrolled for the full 10-month session are scheduled for 34 lessons or classes. 

For students who enroll after the start of the session, tuition will be prorated to reflect the number of scheduled lessons or classes remaining in the school year.

10-Month Session

Students enrolled in private lessons are entitled to one makeup lesson per year. Makeup lessons are held at the same day and time as your regular lesson during the designated makeup week in June. (If you are not owed a makeup lesson, you will not have a lesson during the makeup week.) If you need to miss a lesson, please tell your teacher at least 24 hours in advance.

There are no makeup classes for bands.

In cases of inclement weather, Brooklyn Music Factory follows the New York City public schools and will close if schools close. There are no refunds or makeups for classes and lessons missed due to inclement weather.

Summer Session

There are no makeups for missed lessons. Depending on availability, lessons canceled with 24+ hours notice may be rescheduled at the teacher’s discretion and must take place within his/her available teaching hours. Please note, there are no weekend lessons during the summer.

BMF requires 30 days advance notice of cancellation for band or private lesson enrollment, which allows us to fill the spot. Once notice is given, your remaining tuition is prorated accordingly. For example: John Q. Rockstar's invoice is paid on the 1st of every month. He cancels on October 15. He then receives 4 more weeks of lessons and his November invoice is prorated accordingly.

Please note: If stopping midyear, band students are strongly encouraged to commit through the band gig in January. All bands perform during the gig and the bands work hard in preparation. It’s difficult for the whole band when a member is not able to play.
