General Policies

Students are registered by their grade in the 2018 - 2019 school year.


Registration will be accepted only with complete payment. Registration will be accepted on or prior to the 2nd class period. There will be a $25 charge for checks returned as a result of insufficient funds. Refunds are possible only prior to the second day of class. Refunds are less $10 service fee per registration. You may pay for classes:

  • IN PERSON: Cash, check or credit card (VISA, MasterCard, Discover or American Express)

We reserve the right to determine final class sizes and the right to cancel any class if enrollment is insufficient. We will credit, refund or reschedule only if a class is cancelled due to instructor absence.


The registration of a student also allows us and the Flint Institute of Music to use images of that student in any promotional, print, broadcast or online material. Those wishing not to have their photos used must notify us in writing prior to the start of each term.


School closings may occur in the event of a snow emergency or other natural occurrence and will be announced on television, radio and online at We will NOT automatically close when the Flint Community Schools close.


All classes culminate in a Showcase for family and friends on the final day/night of class. Flyers will be distributed in class as take-home reminders of the Showcase date and time.
