Make-up lessons are held at the end of the month as peer-group master classes. See the school calendar for assigned time and date. If a student is unable to attend that month’s scheduled make-up lesson, student is welcome to attend the following month’s make-up session.

Cancellations by Teacher

In the rare event that a lesson is cancelled by a teacher, a make-up lesson will be scheduled for that teacher or another faculty member within 30 days of missed lesson. The school usually has a substitute teacher cover lessons in the event of illness or professional concert obligations by teachers.

Pro-Rating Lessons on Partial Months
