To Enroll for the year 2017-2018 for existing students and their families:

Click on  Application Form online .  Then click on ‘existing customer log in’. Your email (that you gave us) will serve as your ID. Follow instructions to create your password. Once inside check your contact information in accounts and bank account and/or credit card information. Be sure to save all changes.  Next, go to ‘I want to’ and choose ‘add a student’ (type yourself or your child) then ‘register for a class’. Go to ‘session’ and choose 2017-2018. Your choices should appear. Click on one of them and a window will appear as well. Please list your available days and times, instrument and length of lesson. Click on enroll.

 

A registration fee of $35 will be charged from your account upon enrollment unless notified otherwise (additional family members $20).  Students taking multiple instruments pay a single registration fee. All registration fees are non-refundable.

Pre-registration is due by April 30, 2017.

 

To Enroll New Students:

  1. Complete the Application Form online with your personal information and the times and days you are available. This is very important–it is what we use to begin the scheduling process for your lessons.
  2. Provide credit card or bank account information on our secure registration system to cover the $35.00 registration fee per student ($20 for additional family member).
  3. You will receive a call from us at 817-731-2612 to discuss possible times for your lesson.
  4. Once a time is confirmed, it is reserved for that student. You can start at the very next lesson!

Important Registration Fee Info:

  • The registration fee is only paid once per year–a student continuing through the spring and/or summer sessions does not need to pay again.

PAYMENT POLICY

Registration at AHMA is for the school year. For your convenience, a nine-month payment plan is available. Our automated payment system withdraws a monthly payment from your account or charges your credit card on the 2nd of each month (September through May) or once a semester. Early withdrawal before the end of a semester does not terminate responsibility for payment of tuition. (See withdrawal policy below.)

WITHDRAWAL POLICY

A 30-day notice is required for early withdrawal. One of the two following conditions will apply: (1) Refunds for withdrawal from classes during the semester will be limited to the tuition for remaining classes minus four week’s tuition. (2) For those making payments in quarters, one payment will be due upon withdrawal.

MAKE-UP LESSON POLICY

Musikgarten – Because these young students need the security of having class with the same group of students each week, class lessons missed cannot be made up during another class. No refunds or credits will be given for missed class lessons.

Private lessons may not be made up except in the case of illness or emergency, and then only if we are notified by 2:00 PM the day of the lesson to be missed. To cancel a private lesson call your teacher at 817-731-2612. Leave a message if he/she is unavailable. No refunds or credits will be given for missed class lessons or un-rescheduled private lessons. No makeup lessons will be given after the next AHMA school session starts. Please remember that tuition purchases instruction time, training and experience. Your lesson time is reserved for you even if you don’t use it.

Parent Participation

Parental supervised practice is of utmost importance! Parents are partners in the learning process. Gentle encouragement is needed for the student to feel the delight of successful learning. It is very important that a student feel successful at the tasks he or she is attempting. Please encourage daily practice. Younger children should not be expected to do all of their practicing alone. Sing songs together, practice rhythm and note reading exercises together, practice the assigned pieces together. Try to set aside the same time every day for practice sessions, and make it a goal to practice each piece multiple times each day. Practice time is rewarded through our Practice Points program. Students can receive small prizes throughout the year, and end-of-year awards are also given out.

BAD WEATHER POLICY

Bad weather closing of AHMA will coincide with Fort Worth ISD. Information on school closings is available from radio/TV. Due to scheduling difficulties, bad weather days cannot be made up.

Special instructions:

Students and parents arriving early should enter through the front entrance and wait for their class in the waiting room (foyer). Parking is available in front and behind the school. Please do not park in the driveway! This blocks students and parents who wish to park in back from entering and exiting.
