Tuition, Fees, Scholarships & Policies
The TNT Registration Fee and 1st tuition payment are due at the time of registration.
A non-fundable annual registration fee is due at the time of registration. $35 per student or $65 max per family of 2 or more.
The Course Fee:
The seasonal course fee covers the cost of instruction and studio operation expenses for the season. Your seasonal course fee is determined by the total number of class hours your family is attending per week.
The course fee remains the same regardless of absences, holidays, or weather related closings. In the event of a closing enacted by state mandate, our program will temporarily switch to a virtual program that follows our current class and tuition schedule. TNT does not offer make up classes or pro-rated tuition.
Payment Plan : The first installment is due at the time of registration. Autopay with a credit card on file is the preferred method but we do accept cash and checks made payable to KINDERMUSIK WITH AMY. All tuition payments are due the 1st of each month . Payments received after the 1st will be subject to a $15 late fee.
In the event your payment is declined, you will be notified via email. Please remit an alternate payment prior to the 7th to avoid a late charge billed to your account.
Course fees for students beginning mid-season will be pro-rated based on your start date.
Students whose accounts are overdue by more than 1 month will not be allowed to participate in class or rehearsal until payment is received. Tuition accounts must be paid in full prior to your child participating in the Performance Showcase or Show.
A $30 fee will be assessed for any returned checks or returned EFT transactions.
