Absence, Lateness, Make-Up Policy
Students enrolled in private lessons receive a personalized recorded lesson that the teacher records during their lesson time. This ensures that you never lose momentum and keep learning and growing even when you have to miss your lesson. The beauty of the recorded lesson is you can take your lesson when it's convenient for you.
In addition, enrolled students are entitled to one make-up lesson per year. Make-Up lessons are held on the same day and at the same time as your regular lesson during the designated make-up week in June. If you are not owed a make-up lesson, you will not have a lesson during the make-up week.
If you need to miss your lesson, we prefer 24 hours notice, but you will receive these benefits regardless.
We always monitor the weather and will close the studio if it is unsafe to travel due to inclement weather. In the event that the studio closes due to inclement weather, at the teacher’s discretion, you will either receive a virtual lesson, recorded lesson through lessonmate, or make-up during the designated make-up week. No refunds will be given for missed lessons due to inclement weather.
CMS requires 30 days advance notice of cancellation for private lesson enrollment, which allows us to fill the spot. Once notice is given, your remaining tuition is prorated accordingly. For example if you cancel on October 15th, you will receive 4 more weeks of lessons and your November invoice is prorated 50%.
