It is very important for students to attend lesson regularly in order to advance. Absence due to illness, accident, or family emergency is excused if the instructor is notified at least 24 hours in advance. Lessons missed due to family vacations are excused if notification is given 2 week in advance. Fail to notify teacher with sufficient notification will result in no makeup lesson and no refunds/lesson credits. No makeup lesson after last day of semester. It is student’s responsibility to sign up for a makeup lesson time if desired; however, makeup lessons cannot be guaranteed due to the instructor’s limited availability. Unexcused absences (no show, attending birthday party/ball games or other personal reasons will result in no makeup lesson.)
Students are required to practice a minimum of five days per week and meet the minimum practice requirement as determined by the teacher.
The instructor reserves the right to reschedule any missed lessons due to illness or professional commitments.
Upon deciding to withdraw from lessons, a written note must be given to the 4C Music Academy by the 15th day of the students’ final month.
Parents are encouraged to attend and quietly observe lessons once a month if they desire. The teacher reserves the right to ask the parents not to attend if the parent’s presence alters the student’s learning experience. Parents are asked to encourage students and to actively participate while the student practices at home.
