Attendance Policy

Private Lessons:

In the event of absence, notify your instructor at least 24 hours in advance or as far in advance as possible. One make-up lesson is granted each semester, provided that the student has given the instructor at least 24-hours advance notice.

  • All lessons purchased must be used during the semester they were purchased. Individual lessons may not carry over to the next registration period.
  • Tuition refunds are only possible on a rare case-by-case basis.
  • If an instructor cancels a private lesson, a make-up lesson will be scheduled at a mutually convenient time.
  • If lessons have been suspended due to delinquent payment, make-up lessons will not be scheduled.

Group Classes & Community Connection Ensembles:

In the instance that classes are canceled due to inclement weather or university closure, students will be notified at least 2 hours prior to the start time. Makeup classes will not be possible.
