Make-up Policy

Private-lesson make-up weeks are reserved for lessons due to instructor absences. Private-lesson instructor absences and private lessons (not classes, ensembles, etc.) scheduled on holidays will be made up. Missed student lessons are not eligible for make-up unless scheduled in advance (at least 24 hour notice) with the private lesson instructor. Canceled classes and ensembles cannot be made up. Private lessons canceled due to inclement weather are not required to be made up, but will be considered on a case-by-case basis between the student and the private lesson instructor. Private lesson students who exhibit a habit of canceling lessons may be asked to leave the program without refund.
