How to Register for Music Lessons and Classes:

  1. Fill out the New Student Inquiry Form, or the Registration Form if you are a returning student.
  2. An instructor will contact you to confirm necessary technology, as well as the schedule for lessons requested.
  3. Private music students should pay Registration Fee online after confirming a lesson time with an instructor.
  4. Make first payment, due September 1, 2020.

Tuition Payment:
A completed enrollment form and tuition payment is needed before instruction may begin. Penalty fees: $25 returned check/$20 late fee if tuition is not received by due dates. The balance of the previous term must be received before new term enrollment is allowed.

Private Lesson Scheduling:
Individual lessons are scheduled by the studio teacher. Early registrants and continuing students have the first choice of lesson times.

Missed Private Lessons:
All lessons cancelled by instructors will be rescheduled, if at all possible. Lessons cancelled by the student (unless for extenuating circumstances agreed upon by student and instructor) will not be rescheduled, credited, or refunded; the student will be charged for all missed lessons.

Holidays:
CAA faculty may elect whether or not to teach on school holidays as schedules allow.

Withdrawals/refunds:
Tuition will be fully refunded for withdrawal prior to the beginning of instruction (as a courtesy, students needing to withdraw are asked to do so at least two business days before the lesson is to begin). After instruction has begun, no refunds will be given on monthly payments. For Fall 2020, students will be permitted to withdraw during the semester based on extenuating circumstances.

Tardiness:
Due to busy faculty schedules, students who arrive late cannot be guaranteed full lesson times. Teachers will wait ten minutes for late students; students are asked to do the same for teachers. Shortened lessons due to faculty tardiness will be made up.

Weather/Emergency Closures:
If the Siloam Springs Public Schools are closed, CAA is likely closed. In the case of sudden severe weather, instructors will make every effort to contact students individually if lessons are cancelled.  Students are also welcome to contact the instructors. Inclement weather notices will also be posted here and on JBU's Facebook page.

Non-Discrimination Policy:
The Community Arts Academy follows the JBU Non-Discrimination Policy which states “John Brown University admits persons to its programs and activities without regard to race, color, national or ethnic origin, or gender. The university does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, physical or mental disability, or gender in the administration of education policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletics, and other school-sponsored programs.”
