Fees & Policies

Rhythmo Mariachi Academy reserves the right to change policies, fees, or waivers at any time.


There is an annual $100 insurance fee at the time of registration. Tuition is $80 per month for one weekly class. Tuition is paid first of the month by online subscription.  Your weekly class is not transferable.  Tuition is neither reduced nor refunded due to missed classes by the student. Tuition is paid monthly, it is not calculated by the weekly class. Your monthly tuition rate is the same each month even though some months will have five (5) classes and others as few as three (3). Holiday and break closures have been calculated into the monthly tuition rate.

Registration and tuition fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Late Fees

If tuition payment is not received by the seventh day of the month it is considered late and a $20 late fee will be applied. There will be no exceptions. It is the responsibility of the student/parent to ensure tuition is paid in a timely manner. Rhythmo Mariachi Academy  reserves the right to suspend or discontinue instruction of any student who is delinquent in fulfilling his/her/their financial obligations at any time.


Rhythmo Mariachi Academy reserves the right to dismiss any student due to frequent absences, disciplinary problems, overdue tuition payments and/or parental noncompliance with Rhythmo Mariachi Academy policies


Classes missed by the student will not be made up, nor will a refund/credit be given.  Exceptions in cases of unforeseen illness, accident or emergency may be considered and arranged at the discretion of the teacher and administration. In order for any exceptions to be considered the student/parent must call/email Rhythmo Mariachi Academy as soon as possible. If the student/parent does not call/email in advance, no exception will be offered.


No students should attend lessons when sick (i.e. fever, nausea, vomiting, etc.). Rhythmo Mariachi Academy reserves the right to dismiss a student from a scheduled class if the student arrives exhibiting symptoms of illness.  In that case, a makeup lesson will not be offered.


If a student wishes to discontinue classes, you are still obligated to fulfill the financial commitment for the term stated at signup.  Usually 6 months or a year.


In the event of an instructor absence, Rhythmo Mariachi Academy reserves the right to provide a qualified substitute or schedule a timely make-up session for lessons missed. Rhythmo Mariachi Academy reserves the right to replace the current instructor with a new qualified instructor.


Make sure your child arrives at their lesson and that their teacher is present. Rhythmo Mariachi Academy and its teachers are not responsible for unattended students. Please do not drop off students more than 10 minutes prior to class time and pick them up promptly.  Rhythmo Mariachi Academy faculty and staff do not supervise children waiting in the reception area before or after lessons. Behavior that is in any way unruly or disruptive to our students is unacceptable.
