Missed Lessons

There are no make-up lessons given. Your lesson time is reserved for you. If a lesson is missed for any reason, payment for the lesson is still due. Due to the increasing size of the Studio, I cannot give make-up lessons. Please do not ask.

Parental Involvement

A parent, grandparent or guardian is expected to attend each lesson. Notes should be taken by the parent at each lesson in order to best help the child in the daily practice sessions. It is recommended that each parent read Nutured by Love by Shinichi Suzuki.
