School Policy

SCHOOL POLICY

  • We admit you for three months at minimum. In case you want to quit after three months, please, give us a two-week advance notice.
  • We expect parents to help advertising our school on Google, Yelp and Facebook.
  • You have an opportunity to rent one of our keyboards for two-three weeks FREE of charge ONLY in case you promise to purchase a suitable instrument after a three-week period. Keyboards are NOT real instruments to be used for study.
  • For group lessons in music, you need to look for partners of the same age and level.
  • Students agree to arrive at each lesson punctually, well prepared, and with all necessary materials. Students arriving late will only receive the remaining time of the lesson. Students are responsible for keeping their lessons time slots.
  • We allow one parent to be present during lessons.
  • Our recitals, which we have four times a year, are a beneficial part of an educational process. In rare cases, we allow students to NOT participate.
  • Only well prepared students have a right to play in public. The price for one recital is $20 ($25 in March) and is paid at the last lesson of a month.
  • We only accept monthly payments made at the last lesson of a month (You prepay for the next month). If you are getting enrolled not in the beginning of the month, you prepay for all remaining lessons of the month.
  • No refunds are provided.
  • In case you need to skip a lesson, a 24-hour advance notice is required in order to get a makeup lesson scheduled; otherwise, your absence is not excused. Two makeups are allowed for a three-month period. Canceled lessons may not be credited to the next month.
  • Group lessons cannot be made up.
  • Before your leaving for vacation, you have to prepay for a month, when you resume your study. A period of more than two weeks is considered a vacation.
  • Your vacation: we consider a period of more than two weeks to be the vacation. Before your departure, you need to prepay for the lessons of the month when you RESUME your study. If you are absent for two weeks or less, those lessons need to be made up. We honor ourselves by letting our students make up two lessons during a period of three months.
