Q. What if my child is absent?
A. Make up lessons are available when 1) 24 hours notice is given OR 2) the lessons fall on an official Music Place holiday. Lessons canceled with less than 24 hours notice are forfeited.
Group classes: Since tuition covers 4 classes per month, group classes are taught on quarterly 5th weeks and serve to cover school closures or holidays/closures or absences. Additional make ups for groups for notified group class absences may be scheduled in any (non session) age-appropriate group music or dance class.
Private Classes: Although tuition for weekly classes covers four lessons, we do not charge an additional fee for the fifth week in a month as it is used as a make up for holidays or future properly notified absences for which there is no fifth week in that particular month.
Q. Do we pay for vacation absences?
A. In order to "hold" their spot during Summer or Winter, students may pay only for classes taken, (at the higher single class rate) provided the following occurs:
- 7 days notice is given for absences.
- At least 2 classes per month are paid.
- Payments are made in advance
Q. Are private lessons ever taught when The Music Place office is closed?
A. Yes, by appointment only. Please check with your student's instructor.
Q. What if my child's teacher is absent?
A. Your teacher will give you the option of a make up, a substitute or an account credit arranged through the office.
