The studio shall not assume any financial responsibility for a student's absence(s). It is also the position of this piano studio that sporting events and other extracurricular activities are not considered valid excuses for not practicing during the week. Sports and music may not always be mutually compatible, but need not be mutually exclusive.

Also, please be prompt in picking up your child after his/her lesson if you must be absent during that time. This applies to both rehearsals and performances. For your child’s safety, please ensure your student is with an Instructor and in a lesson before leaving.
