What is your refund policy?

We understand that Band can be a large commitment for a student while starting out. Due to the nature of learning a musical instrument it is important that a student be committed to the process and work though any difficulties that come up with their learning. Refunds are not offered for any of the Bands or Private Lessons at The Dayton Regional STEM School. Additionally, refunds will not be provided should school be closed.

What if the school goes back to Hybrid or Virtual learning? 

If the Dayton Regional STEM School goes back to virtual or hybrid learning we will transition to an online music program. While students will be unable to play together they are still able to learn and develop on their instruments for when schools resume normal instruction.
