Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
It is a completely self-paced online educational program - you decide when you start and when you finish, and you can re-watch classes as many times as you wish.
How long do I have access to the curriculum, teachers, materials and forums?
In traditional in-person classes you do not get access to the instruction beyond the first day. We are happy to inform you that at the online Film Scoring Academy you will have access to the classes, mentorship, materials, forum discussions, and any supplemental new content as it comes for a period of 1 year, and can renew access annually for 10% of the most current retail price for the program.
What if I am unhappy with the class?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase within the first 30 days, stop immediately and contact us and we will give you a refund for the portion of the class you did not view. We're sorry, but if you already viewed a section, we have no way of knowing if you watched it or not, and just like real university, once you have taken a class you cannot "untake" it. You have been delivered the education and those classes and lessons cannot be refunded. You will be refunded for whatever lessons you did not click on and view.
