At this time we don't have any instructors available on Friday or Saturday. Lessons will be for the entire semester. There will be no lessons during school breaks such as Fall Break or Thanksgiving or during parent conferences. Please note there WILL be lessons days before these breaks even if either campus has early dismissal as well as on Faculty In-service and Service Learning days,

Registration: All registration will happen directly from the registration site linked below and will open on Saturday, August 20th at 5:00 p.m and will close at 11:59pm on Friday, August 26th. Registration will be for 12-14 lessons (see above). If you would like an hour lesson, please sign up for two back-to-back 30-minute slots.

Cost/Payment: Lessons will be $45/half hour and $80/hour (hour lessons strongly recommended for high school students). For specific semester totals for each weekday please see the list above. Lessons may be paid in two payments. The first will be charged on September 6th, and the second will be charged on October 17th. We will charge the card on file at that time for your convenience. There will also be a $35 Recital Fee each semester for all students involved in the lessons program. These will be included in the registration fee. The recital fee is per instrument a student is studying (e.g. if a student is taking both piano and guitar lessons, there will be a recital fee for both instruments).

Cancellation/Rescheduling Policy: Payment is non-refundable for lessons (unless canceled by the instructor). All lessons missed by students/families are forfeited by default. Lessons may be rescheduled for the same week with 48 hours notice from the family and only if the teacher has availability and is willing to make the lesson up. This is out of respect for our instructors' time and due to the complicated logistics of rescheduling. Lessons canceled by instructors and not made up within the lesson cycle will be refunded to the card charged or credited for future lessons.

Aftercare: Any students staying on the Red Gables campus before or after their lesson will need to be registered for Aftercare in addition to their lesson. Students with 3:30pm lesson do not need to be registered for Aftercare if they get picked up right after their lesson.

Red Gables Lesson Meetup: All students taking lessons at Red Gables should meet their instructor either in the courtyard between Patton and Frist Halls or under the awning in front of Frist Hall 5 minutes before their lesson begins. If they are registered for aftercare, they will be escorted to and from there.

Red Gables Pickup: All students who are leaving campus directly from lessons must be picked up by a parent/guardian in the courtyard between Patton and Frist Halls immediately after their lesson. Any students without an immediate ride when their lesson ends will be sent to Aftercare and their family will be charged the Aftercare fee for that day.

Red Gables Students on Frist Campus: Many of our instructors on the Frist campus offer lessons to our Red Gables families. Please note that you should not register a Red Gables student for any 3:30pm slots at the Frist Campus because you will not have time to get from Red Gables to Frist by 3:30.

Instrument Provision: With the exception of Piano and Drum Kit students, all students will be required to bring their own instruments. Upon registering for lessons, you will receive instructor contact information if you should need advice about where to rent or buy instruments.
