We are 100% invested in giving you (or your child) the appropriate curriculum to help achieve a successful education in music as well as enhancing a lifelong enjoyment and appreciation of music. Students have very diverse strengths, interests and learning styles. Parents have varying expectations. All this is considered when choosing lesson materials for each student. We are constantly researching and reviewing new materials, teaching aids, methodologies and educational technology to assure that you are receiving the best music education possible.
Student Drop-off and Pick-up:
If a parent or guardian cannot wait with a student during a lesson, the student should be dropped off no earlier than five minutes before the scheduled lesson time and picked up no later than five minutes after the lesson ends. Please make sure their teacher is at the studio before you leave. If a student must be dropped off early or picked up late or if you are running late unexpectedly, please contact the teacher directly to ensure someone will be at the studio to wait with your child. The studio is only open for scheduled lessons and does not keep specific hours. For your child's safety and your own convenience, please do not assume the doors will be open and someone will be available to wait with your child more than five minutes before and after their scheduled lesson time.
Cancellation of Enrollment:
If a student needs to discontinue enrollment in a semester due to illness or other unavoidable circumstances, the studio will retain a pro-rated portion of the tuition for two weeks following the date of discontinuance.
New Students Enrolled Mid-Semester:
If a new student enrolls after a semester has begun, they may take a partial term of lessons with a pro-rated tuition.
If lessons are missed due to snow or inclement weather, a make-up lesson or class will be scheduled with the teacher. Often schools are closed in the morning, but the roads are clear and safe by afternoon. In these cases lessons will continue as scheduled. Please call the studio or your teacher directly if there is any doubt or question about the weather.
In the event a teacher has to be absent due to a professional or personal commitment, a make-up lesson will be scheduled with the teacher. If a make-up is impossible, then we will issue a credit at the end of the semester for the missed lesson. In the event of an absence due to sudden illness or other teacher emergency, a substitute teacher may teach your lesson. You may not be notified about this in advance.
