Welcome to the Lakewood After School Program for boys!
The classes are geared for motivated 8 to 12 year old boys, beginner, intermediate and advanced levels, and where applicable, performance levels as well. Please note that each class level is generally associated with the number of semesters that your child has attended. If your child has not mastered the specific skills associated with his previous class level, the instructor may suggest that he retake that class. For all students who are new to our After School Program, but are NOT beginners to that particular elective, please pay attention to the brief summary attached to each elective to know what level class your child should attend.
Can my child join the program if the semester has already started? Will I be charged full price?
He can join the program if there’s a slot available. Contact the office for a coupon code to deduct the unattended classes.
Does my son get a make-up class if he missed one by a personal reason?
No, the make-up classes take place only if were cancelled by Lakewood (weather conditions, etc.)
Do I get refund if my son changed his mind?
The refund can be issued only after the first class. Later than that you can try switching to a different elective. Check availability with the office.
Do I get a discount if my child attends the program more than one time a week?
The discount is applicable only for the same elective. For instance, it may be Gymnastics twice a week, and not Arts and Drums once a week each.
Can I pay in parts?
The payment must be submitted in full, but our payment system (PayPal) offers PayPal Credit allowing you to pay off within 6 months with 0% interest. You might need to set up your credit account with PayPal first.
Where can I rent a musical instrument?
Garden State Music Center offers the best pricing in the area. They have a special rental rate that for the first 4 months it comes out to anywhere between 13 to 20 dollars a month, depending on the instrument. At that point you can return it or continue renting the instrument for a higher rate. 4 months should give you and your child enough time to see if this instrument is going to work for them long term.
