The terms of this Agreement shall control over any conflicting terms in any referenced agreement, document, email, electronic communication or verbal conversation.

If you are under 18 years old, parental (or guardian) permission in writing will be required before attending any SLDP course or session.

By registering, scheduling, attending and/or paying for an SLDP course or session, you hereby agree that you have read and/or downloaded, copied, printed this agreement, and that you accept the policies set forth herein. By paying for and attending your first session at SLDP, you acknowledge that you have read through and agree to abide by these Terms of Use, and have read and agree to abide by any policies set forth in the SLDP Frequently Asked Questions portion of this website.

Student Consent

By using our site, you consent to the SLDP Privacy Policy. By attending sessions at SLDP or with an SLDP instructor, you agree to and agree to abide by all SLDP terms of use indicated herein. By paying in advance for any SLDP course, you agree to and agree to abide by all SLDP terms of use indicated herein. By attending any course at SLDP, student understands that SLDP has a zero-tolerance policy for disorderly conduct, sexual harassment (see below), fighting, and any form of abuse between students and instructors, and between students and other SLDP students. Any violation of this zero-tolerance policy is grounds for immediate discontinuation from SLDP and all of it’s courses, without any refund.

Scheduling and Payment

Reservations may require a 50% deposit upon booking, including the initial consultation in some cases. Deposits are to ensure that the student attends his or her scheduled session, and are fully refundable up to 48 hours before the start of session. Initial consultations are free of charge, so if the student decides not to continue with SLDP, the entire deposit will be refunded in cash to the student at the close of the consultation. If student wishes to continue, the initial deposit will be applied to the students next scheduled session.  SLDP Coordinators and/or SLDP Instructors may choose to remind students of scheduled sessions, but students are ultimately responsible for their own attendance and punctuality. If a student arrives late, it is up to the discretion of the instructor whether or not to add the time missed to the end of his or her scheduled time. If another SLDP student is scheduled to arrive, the Instructors are required to end the session on the hour. If a student misses a session or multiple scheduled sessions, or is unresponsive to SLDP contact, it is up to the discretion of the SLDP Coordinators and Instructors whether the student continues, or is rendered ineligible to participate in SLDP courses.

In certain situations and at the discretion of SLDP, SLDP coordinators and instructors, a student’s weekly scheduled session may be changed to another day and/or time of day. If allowed or if another time slot is available, students are allowed to change their session day/time no more than a one (1) time. If a student is unable to continue attending a certain day/time and has no possibility of changing their session because of work, relocation or any other circumstance, the student will not be able to continue at SLDP until they are able to attend the session in which they are currently enrolled. During this period of inactivity, students will not lose or forfeit any sessions that have been prepaid.

Monthly payments are made no later than 11:59 PM MST on the 1st of every month, without exception. Any payments made after this date and time are subject to a $25 late fee, if paid by the 3rd of the Month. After the 3rd of the month, the late fee rises to $50. If full monthly payment, plus any late fee, is not paid before the next scheduled session, your weekly session may be postponed. During a period when the student is not current on payments, he or she will not be allowed to schedule studio use outside of scheduled class time. If a student finds him or herself in a position where they are not able to make their contracted monthly payment, SLDP reserves the right to pursue legal action to ensure full payment. Additionally, an unpaid balance may be transferred to a 3rd party collection agency, and reported to all major credit bureaus. A payment plan forbearance may be an option and would be applied at the discretion of SLDP. In addition to the late fee of $50, a forbearance fee of $50 per month will be added to the total amount owed, bringing the total cost of forbearance per month to $100. After a payment is 30 or more days late, and the student has not responded to requests for payment, forbearance offer or communicated an alternative payment plan, the time slot that they occupy will become available to another student and the total remaining balance will be due immediately. Students that discontinue making their monthly payments will receive an invoice for the total remaining balance, which is equal to the cost of the full course minus the total of all payments previously made, plus any cancellation fees and/or late fees. The total amount of this invoice is due within 30 days of receipt. If a student fails to pay this invoice within 30 days, all of the following may occur: reporting of delinquent account to all major credit bureaus, transfer of account to a 3rd party collection agency and legal action to recover delinquent balance. As a student, you will also be responsible for any attorney fees, collection agency fees, filing fees or other costs related to the collection of a balance you owe.

Payment Plans

The advertised price of each course applies only when the full amount is paid before the course begins. For students that are unable to make payment in full before the start date of a course, we offer monthly payment plans. It may be required that a student submit a Payment Plan Application to confirm his or her ability to make payments on time and in full. The total cost of the payment plan will depend on the length (in months) of the selected plan. For any course with an up front cost of less than $2000, no payment plan will be offered and these courses must be paid in full before the class begins. For our main Music Production and DJ courses, up front cost of $2499, payment plans are available as follows:

  • (12) Payments of $250 – total cost of $3000
  • (10) Payments of $290 – total cost of $2900
  • (8) Payments of $350 – total cost of $2800
  • (6) Payments of $450 – total cost of $2700
  • (4) Payments of $650 – total cost of $2600

Upon choosing to pay in monthly installments and submitting first months payment to SLDP, the student is entering into a legally binding agreement to pay the entire cost of chosen program(s) in monthly payments. After a payment is 30 or more days late, and the student has not responded to requests for payment or communicated an alternative payment plan, the time slot that they occupy will become available to another student and the total remaining balance will be due immediately. Students that discontinue making their monthly payments will receive an invoice for the total remaining balance, which is equal to the cost of the full course minus the total of all payments previously made, plus any cancellation fees. The total amount of this invoice is due within 30 days of receipt. If a student fails to pay this invoice within 30 days, SLDP reserves the right to pursue legal action and any/all remedies to recover the remaining balance of the full payment plan or balance owed, plus any cancellation fees, late fees, and interest. As a student, you will also be responsible for any attorney fees, collection agency fees, filing fees or other costs related to the collection of a balance you owe. For students that do not wish to make a long term commitment, we suggest taking individual sessions at the rate of $150/hr, with a 5 session minimum.

Unpaid Balances

Unpaid balances will accrue interest at a rate of 5%, calculated monthly. SLDP reserves the right to pursue legal action and any/all remedies to recover the remaining balance of the full payment plan or balance owed, plus any cancellation fees, late fees and interest. As a student, you will also be responsible for any attorney fees, collection agency fees, filing fees or other costs related to the collection of a balance you owe.

Sessions, Workshops and Consultations

Student may choose to bring his or her own equipment, but it’s 100% acceptable for the student to learn and practice on the equipment provided by SLDP. If student chooses to bring his or her own equipment, the student is liable for any use, damage, or loss of the equipment while in the presence of an SLDP instructor or in an SLDP facility. SLDP instructors are trained in computers, software and many hardware controllers/DJ hardware, and will always ask for your permission before using or modifying your equipment. If you are not comfortable with these terms, please use the equipment provided by SLDP.

Full Programs

Upon choosing to pay in monthly installments and submitting first months payment to SLDP, the student is entering into a legally binding agreement to pay the entire cost of chosen program(s) in monthly payments. For students that do not wish to make a commitment, we suggest taking individual sessions at the rate of $150/hr, with a 5 session minimum. Upon paying for a full course or purchasing any number of sessions, students agree to attend those sessions on the same day and time each week. SLDP reserves the right to reschedule any session for any reason. If a student fails to contact SLDP, respond to contact from SLDP or attend a session for longer than a six month period, all purchased sessions and courses will be considered abandoned. An abandoned course or abandoned sessions are not eligible for a refund, and any possibility of continuing an abandoned course or attend abandoned sessions will be at the discretion of SLDP. All course prices include ONLY in-studio, instructor directed session time. SLDP courses do not include any supplies or equipment needed to study and practice on your own time, including, but not limited to, computers, keyboards, production equipment, DJing equipment, software, hardware, paper, pens, etc. Students are required to provide these items for themselves. All students are required to obtain their own licensed copy of the software that pertains to their chosen course. In order to obtain educational pricing on equipment and software, SLDP can provide written verification of your enrollment. Also, SLDP has partnered with various retailers and software developers to provide educational pricing directly to students and will provide instructions on obtaining those discounts upon request. In order to eliminate any fraud or abuse of the educational discounts provided by SLDP and its partners, students that make any purchase through SLDP, Performance Audio or any other SLDP partner, and receive an educational discount with that purchase, will not be permitted to cancel a class, payment plan or receive any refund.

One-On-One Sessions

SLDP is willing to place students in a one-on-one learning environment when those time slots are available, but the majority of our students are placed in small groups of no more than six students. The common phrase applies to Music Production and DJing: Two heads are better than one. Students in our small group sessions consistently learn and progress faster than our one-on-one sessions. Group sessions also provide an opportunity for students to connect with other people in the area with similar interests and goals with music. SLDP does not guarantee a one-on-one learning setting for any student or any time slot. Students of similar skill level and experience can be moved into any given time slot at any point during a course. Please contact us if you require starting into a guaranteed one-on-one session.

Cancellations and Refunds

After paying for and scheduling a full program, students have up until forty-eight (48) hours before orientation to cancel and withdraw from any SLDP course. All refund and cancellation requests must be made in writing, via mail or email, and must be made no later than 48 hours before the scheduled start of the course or start of the payment plan (payment plans begin as soon as first payment is made). Refunds and cancellations are subject to a one hundred dollar ($100.00 USD) processing fee and may take 30 days to process. All deposits are non-refundable, including those made to reserve a spot in a new course, reserve a special schedule request, one on one course or individual sessions. Any request to cancel after a course has started and/or a student has attended any session, will be denied. If the scheduled start date for your course arrives and you are unable to start because of a scheduling conflict, family emergency, natural disaster, etc, SLDP will attempt to reschedule your course to a later date. This reschedule will be allowed only a single time. For students enrolled in a monthly payment program, a cancellation of a weekly session must be made no later than 48 hours before the scheduled session time. Any cancellations or reschedules after the 48-hour mark constitutes a no show and will result in forfeiture of that session. With promotional offers or discounted courses, all sales are final. Any full payment or payment plan towards a promotional offer or discount is not eligible for a refund after full payment has been made, or after a payment plan has begun. Any mutual cancellation of a specific session between you and SLDP will not result in forfeiture of any sessions. SLDP reserves the right to cancel sessions for any reason, and you, as an SLDP student, will not be penalized for any cancellation made by SLDP.

In certain situations deemed acceptable, solely under the discretion of SLDP, a student may be able to cancel a full course and payment plan and be held responsible only for past sessions up to the point of cancellation. In this situation, if the student is permitted to withdraw from a course and payment plan, he or she will be financially responsible, at the individual sessions rate of $150, only for the sessions up to the point of cancellation, regardless of whether he or she was in attendance of those sessions. Please contact an SLDP representative if you are considering this option.

Course Renewal

All sessions, programs and payment plans are scheduled and committed to a month in advance. Students that have purchased sessions or courses up front have the opportunity to renew at any time (discounts may be available for early renewal, ask your SLDP coordinator for details) but must renew no later than one month before they are scheduled to attend their last session. If a student has not renewed before their last month of sessions, their session time will not be guaranteed and will be available to be scheduled by another student.

SLDP and Student Cancellations

SLDP, it’s coordinators and instructors reserve the right to cancel any session, at any time, for any reason. In the event of an SLDP cancellation, student will be notified at least 48 hours in advance, and will be able to make up the canceled session(s). In most cases, the session will be canceled and a student’s remaining number of sessions will remain unchanged. If a student wishes to cancel a session and still attend that session at a later date, SLDP must be notified no later than 48 hours before the start of the session. Any session that goes unattended or is canceled anytime after the 48-hour mark will be forfeited, no exceptions. There is a $50 charge per session to makeup any no-show or forfeited session. Depending on the situation and the reason for the missed class, SLDP may waive this charge at it’s discretion.

Photography, Video and Audio

SLDP and it’s affiliates reserve the right to film, photograph and record the audio of all sessions, workshops, meetups and events within the school. SLDP reserves all rights to archive, edit, produce, publish and make these photos, videos and audio recordings publicly available for any purpose, including to market and promote the courses, curiculum and culture at SLDP. As a student, you are not entitled to any payment or royalty from sales generated from the use of these videos, photos or recorded audio. As a student, you also waive the right to inspect or approve any final product or end use of these videos, photos or recorded audio. These videos, photos and recorded audio may be used and displayed at any time in perpetuity, displayed using any and all methods of distribution, including online, print and televised, for any reason and in all geographic regions worldwide.

Sexual Harassment and Conduct

It is the policy of this organization that no member of the SLDP community – students, coordinators, instructors, or third parties – may sexually harass any other member of the community. Sexual harassment is any unwelcome conduct (verbal, nonverbal, written, or otherwise perpetrated) of a sexual nature, which includes, but is not limited to, unwelcome sexual advances; conduct that creates a hostile, intimidating or offensive learning or working environment; conduct that has the effect of unreasonably interfering with a student or instructor’s ability to carry out their duties; and other verbal, nonverbal, or physical conduct of a sexual nature that is sufficiently severe, persistent, or pervasive to limit a student’s ability to learn and excel at SLDP, or an instructor’s ability to teach and help other SLDP students. Violation of this policy is grounds for immediate dismissal from SLDP and all courses, without the possibility of a refund.

Examples of sexual harassment include, but are not limited to:

  • Sexual assault towards a student or instructor
  • Pressure for a dating, romantic, or intimate relationship with a student or instructor
  • Touching, kissing, hugging, or massaging another student or instructor
  • Pressure for or forced sexual activity on another student or instructor
  • Unnecessary references to parts of the body while at the SLDP facility
  • Unwelcome verbal or written discussion of sexual relationships, sex or sex acts
  • Remarks about sex, sexual relationships or the sexual orientation of another student or instructor
  • General or specific sexual innuendoes or humor
  • Obscene gestures towards a student or instructor
  • Sexually explicit profanity towards another student or instructor
  • Stalking or cyber-bullying towards another student or instructor
  • E-mail and Internet use that includes, but it not limited to, any of the previous examples

Along with providing a thorough education in Music Production and DJing, SLDP is committed to maintaining a safe and productive learning environment within it’s doors. If you feel that another student or instructor has violated this sexual harassment policy, please contact us immediately. We quickly report and act on any violation, big or small. For parents of young children, we understand your concern about leaving your child in a one-on-one situation with an instructor. Don’t hesitate to ask an instructor to sit in on any session.

Non-Discrimination

SLDP does not engage in and prohibits discrimination against and harassment of any SLDP student or instructor because of race, color, national or ethnic origin, age, religion, disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, veteran status or any other characteristic protected under applicable federal or state law. All SLDP personnel are charged to support this effort and to respond promptly and appropriately to any concerns that are brought to their attention. SLDP maintains a zero-tolerance policy regarding any actions between students and instructors, written or verbal, that violate this non-discrimination policy.

Warranties and Liability

SLDP expressly excludes all warranties, express or implied, as to the information, concepts, and software and hardware recommendations by SLDP instructors. SLDP does not guarantee any job placement or any specific level of success, monetarily or otherwise, to you as a student of SLDP. SLDP hereby disclaims liability and you agree that and in no event shall SLDP be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, consequential or special damages, including without limitation damages from injury, electrocution, fire, loss of revenue or profits, costs of labor, overhead, transportation, installation or removal of equipment, or any damages from or attributable to your use of any SLDP equipment.  This disclaimer shall apply whether or not SLDP has been made aware of the possibility of such damages.
