Policies and Procedures

Missed Lessons and Tardiness Policies:

Group Classes – Group classes run with a minimum of four students. We recommend registering at least a week in advance of the start date to keep your spot.  It is not possible to make up lost instruction for a lack of class attendance. There are no make-up classes unless the class is canceled by the instructor or the college. No portion of the tuition is refundable.

Individual Lessons - Care should be taken to attend all scheduled lessons. While our teachers make every effort to reschedule lessons that are canceled in advance, this is not always possible and teachers are not obligated to arrange make-up lessons.  Make-ups are not possible for lessons canceled with less than 24-hour notice, for no-shows or for canceled make-ups. Teachers do not teach beyond the scheduled time or make-up any lesson time if a student is late. If a teacher cancels a lesson or is late, make-up lessons or additional times are arranged. No make-up lessons are to be scheduled past the end of the semester.
