Spring 2020 Returns/Summer Lesson Voucher Program
Due to a family emergency the following hours are in effect this week:
Instrument return deadlines have been
extended until mid-July.
All In-House instruments (instruments NOT paid monthly and were paid for at the beginning of the school year), MUST be returned, renewed for the summer or must be covered by the lesson voucher program (see below) by 4pm, July 19th, or you will be be billed a late fee of $1 plus tax per business day, as per your contract.
**Friday, 5/22's dropoff time has been changed from 4-6:30 to 5 to at least 7pm. Some people went back to work this week- let's give them a chance to get home first. The other Friday dropoffs may change to this timing too. If you think it won't be until after 7pm that you can come by, call 668-5441. Karen may be staying later than 7pm!
***Would you rather have your child continue playing during the summer? Please email Karen for more information and to register. Students that take lessons over the summer not only do not have to return their instrument for the summer, but their In-House summer rental is FREE, and their VIR rental is partially reimbursed! The instrument's contract will have to be renewed or instrument returned by September 30th for the 2020-2021 school year. This offer is valid for new Music Room students and immediate family members only and lessons DO NOT have to be for the same instrument they are renting! This means if one child currently takes violin at “school” and their younger brother wants to take lessons on the keyboard or guitar they have at home, this offer can include that as well!***
If there is an extenuating circumstance and you cannot return your instruments during any of the listed times above, please email her at email@example.com, or Karen@musicroombuffalo.com. Extenuating circumstances only, please and thank you!
Dropoff Info: Please drop off instruments just inside the door. DO NOT leave instrument outside, whether we are open or not. Proper Documentation must accompany the instrument. Either print off the form, or CLEARLY PRINT the following information on your own paper:
Contract Holder's Name: _________________________________ Instrument: _____________
Signature: ________________________________ Date: _____________
By signing your form, you aknowledge that your insturment has been returned with all proper pieces, and if something is missing then you understand that you will be billed for a replacement part. If you are a VIR customer (meaning you pay monthly to rent), you surrender your equity upon account closure, and that you cannot take advantage of our summer lesson voucher program.
When you arrive at Music Room, you will be asked two questions: if you have the above information on paper for us to process your return, and if you have included all necessary pieces with your returned instrument.
WE CANNOT PROCESS YOUR RETURN WITHOUT THE ABOVE INFORMATION. Failure to provide this information to us may result in you receiving a bill for a summer rental, equaling $25 plus tax. While there is identifying information on the instrument, our system requires us to have contract ID verification for us to complete a return and close an account successfully.
Before leaving the instrument with us, please be sure all necessary parts are included:
All String instruments: the instrument, bow, and case.
Flute: Three silver-colored pieces, and VIR instruments need cleaning rod returned
Clarinet: Four black colored pieces, mouthpiece (also black), ligature (metal piece that fits over the mouthpiece) mouthpiece cap (either plastic or metal).
Saxophone: Instrument, neck, mouthpiece, ligature (metal piece that fits over mouthpiece), mouthpiece cap (either metal or plastic)
Trumpet: instrument and mouthpiece
Trombone: instrument, slide, mouthpiece
Snare/Bell Combo Kit: drum sticks, mallets, drum/bell stand, practice pad, drum, bells, music stand attachment
Failure to include all pieces with your instrument will result in an a bill equal to the replacement value of the needed part.
Any questions, please email Karen at Karen@musicroombuffalo.com or firstname.lastname@example.org . Thank you for your patience during these tough times, but Music Room is weathering the storm and we will be here for you and your musical needs as much as we are able.
