Make-up Policy

NDavisMusic Lessons
(for all instruments)
Each student is responsible for attending each lesson of every month as scheduled. 
Regular attendance is required.
Sports and extracurricular activities do not take precedent over lessons.
Make-up lessons are not guaranteed but will be provided when available.
Make-up lessons will not be provided for make-up lessons.  If you miss your make-up lesson for anything less than an emergency, you lose your make-up lesson.
In order to have the option of a make-up lesson, a minimum of 24 hours notice is required.  Without 24 hours notice there is no way to fill your time slot, thus you are responsible for it.  E-mail notice is required to help better track notices for cancellations.
For last minute cancellations (within 24 hours) please call with cancellations for your lesson, though there are no make-up lessons for these last minute cancellations.
Make-ups must be scheduled within 30 days of the absence.  It is your responsibility to schedule the make-up with me; I will not hunt you down.  Make-ups will be scheduled during other cancellations so they are not guaranteed, but I will do my best to accommodate you.
Habitual absences will not be tolerated as it is unfair to me and the other students, and is counter-productive to the growth of the student.
There are no credits or refunds for any missed lessons. 
Your tutition cost is assessed based on an 11 week quarter scheduled over a 3 month span.  During each quarter there will be scheduled studio closures for which you are not charged, and therefore no make-ups are needed.  For the full calendar of closures and list of scheduled lesson dates, please visit the studio calendar.
Emergencies and other exceptions will be taken into consideration and decisions made on a case by case scenario.  I reserve sole authority to make those decisions.
These policies are enforced to ensure a smooth process and a stable environment for growth.  Thank you for abiding them.
All students and parents are required to follow all of the guidelines listed in the make-up policies as well as the rules and regulations.  Those that do not abide by these regulations will not be allowed to continue lessons.  I reserve sole discretion over who takes lessons and who is asked not to return.
