Non-Negotiable Policies



Tuition is to be paid on a quarterly basis at the beginning of each quarter. Payment plans are available; however, payment must be paid prior to the beginning of each payment period. Students whose accounts are delinquent will not be permitted to register for the next quarter.


Administrative Fee

All students who choose to enroll in sessions at the beginning of each quarter – before the registration deadline – will not be required to pay any administrative fees. However, those students who choose late enrollment will be charged a $30 late registration fee. In addition, the students who choose late registration are not eligible to participate in the Annual LSM Competition and cannot benefit from any LSM discounts in the quarter they registered after the deadline has passed.

Missed Lesson

Due to heavy teaching and performance schedules, it is not possible to schedule make-up lessons when a student misses a lesson for any reason without prior notification to the instructor. If the instructor misses a lesson, the lesson will either be rescheduled at a time that is convenient for the student, or a credit for the lesson will be given on the following quarter’s tuition. Parents are encouraged to trade lessons with other students when conflicts arise, but the instructor should not be asked to facilitate a trade. It is the student’s responsibility to verify the time/location of a traded lesson. Parents must notify the instructor of a cancellation or trade at least 24 hours prior to the lesson. 

Make-up Classes and Cancellations

Excused Absences: For individual lessons, students must give a minimum 24-hour advance cancellation notice to be considered excused. Students are required to call the LSM office at 312.857.5761 and leave a message that must include their name, the instructor’s name, and date and time of lesson canceled. Only one individual make-up lesson for an excused absence will be provided per ten-week session.


Unexcused Absences: Unexcused absences are absences for which a student has not given the mandatory 24-hour notice as specified above. Make-ups for unexcused absences are not offered, and lessons missed due to unexcused absences are non-refundable.


Make-Up Sessions for Group Classes or Ensembles: Make-up sessions for group classes or ensembles are not offered unless Logos School of Music cancels or re-schedules a class or ensemble. Make-up sessions due to student absences are not offered for group classes and ensembles, and classes missed due to student absences are non-refundable.


Course Cancellation: Logos School of Music reserves the right to cancel any class due to insufficient enrollment, and all paid student tuition will be refunded in the case of course cancellation. Final course cancellation decisions will be made at the end of the second week of each session.


Parents/guardians/caregivers are responsible for supervising the safety of their children at all times while they are on the Logos School of Music premises. Upon registering yourself or your child for participation in programs at Logos School of Music, you acknowledge that you will be waiving and releasing all claims for injuries that you or your child may incur while on Logos School of Music premises, or while involved in any program at Logos School of Music. Furthermore, Logos School of Music is not a licensed childcare facility, and any child, age seven or under, taking lessons or classes at Logos School of Music is required to have a parent/guardian/caregiver present on Logos School of Music premises at all times during lesson or class time in case of emergency.
