Invoices are due by the 15th of each month. Invoices not paid in full by the 15th will incur a $10 late fee. 


Attendance Policies

Our instructors are local, professional musicians that have reserved a special lesson time just for you!

Because of this, we have the following attendance policies.


  • Private lessons canceled by the student or parent at least 24 hours in advance will be credited or a make-up lesson will be scheduled at the discretion of the instructor.

  • Lessons canceled with less than 24 hours notice will not be credited. 

  • Arriving late to your lesson shortens your lesson time and the missed portion will not be made up or credited.

  • If the instructor cancels a private lesson for any reason, a make-up lesson will be scheduled or a credit will be added to the tuition.

  • Group lessons are forfeited if the student is absent.

  •  If the instructor cancels a group lesson for any reason it will be credited.


In the event of cancellation, please contact your instructor directly.


Severe Weather

The Music Village follows the South Bend Community School Corporation severe weather closings. In the event that South Bend schools are closed due to weather, The Music Village will also be closed. Notices will be posted on Facebook.
