Studio Policy Update

  Monday, September 12, 2022 by Philip Burns | Uncategorized

Happy fall!  Much has gone on over the past few years, but what hasn’t changed is our commitment to people and the arts.  We are thrilled to have grown our staff of brilliant teaching artists and we are very thankful for the wonderful students and their families who believe that education in music is something that should be taken seriously.

At the start of the pandemic, we made the decision to loosen our attendance and payment policies as getting through life had become so hard for so many.  As we’ve observed the changes in the world and the people who surround us, we believe that we are in a place where we can return to more structure on our studio calendars and our expectations.  As a result, we are returning to a semester system.  All students will be financially responsible for the specific number of weeks that their teacher is teaching this semester.  If you know you have an upcoming conflict, please let your teacher know and make arrangements to switch with another student.  If you can’t find another student to swap lesson times with, please let your teacher know so that they can find a time that will work.  

Make up lessons are ONLY given for emergencies, sickness, inclement weather, and if your teacher needs to cancel for any reason.    

If you have any questions or challenges, please reach out!  Above all else, we want to make lessons as helpful, enjoyable and accessible as we can.  Thank you for being with us on this journey!
