Policies and Expectations

REGISTRATION

  • A one time $35 registration fee is assessed with each new student; no charge for returning students, no matter previous class type. 
  • Teachers will treat all students and family members with dignity and respect at all times. 
  • Teachers will be on time and present for all scheduled lessons/classes, barring emergencies, pre-planned vacations, illness, or inclement weather. 
  • If the teacher has to cancel class for any reason, class will be rescheduled at a time that works for everyone.

ATTENDANCE

  • Students/Parents/Guardians can cancel attendance for classes/lessons in the studio portal. 
  • Any music lesson cancelled by 11:55pm the day before your scheduled class in the portal will automatically receive a make-up credit.
  • Music lesson make-up credits can be used in the make-up scheduler in the studio portal to choose an open small group make-up class for the appropriate age group (please register at least 1 day in advance).
  • If you're not feeling well enough to come in, please consider an online lesson that week. That is always an option! During COVID-19, please stay home if you have any symptoms of cold, flu, or general illness and request an online lesson.

TUITION

  • Tuition is based upon the whole semester, payable at once or monthly according to agreement.
  • There is no discount on tuition for missed classes/lessons.
