How to Address Missed or Canceled Lessons

Lessons that fall on holidays will be held at regular times or rescheduled in advance.

Make-Up Lessons

  • I do not offer make-up lessons due to illness, bad weather, unpreparedness, oversleeping, vacations, school plays or programs, family events, or other extracurricular activities.    
  • When you commit and enroll in the studio, you are expected to attend your assigned lessons.  
  • If you have a planned absence, you are encouraged to call other students in advance and find someone to trade with.  If you are unable to switch, then that lesson will be forfeited.  I can provide you with a studio phone number list.   
  • If I have any unforeseen circumstances that require canceling lessons (this can often happen due to performances & rehearsals), I will provide a make-up lesson opportunity for you.
