Private Lessons - Missed lessons will result in a customized video lesson.

 

Group and semi-private classes do not have makeup lessons unless the teacher cancels.

 

Lessons may be switched to Zoom due to any illness. A minimum of 2 hours' notice might be needed.

 

Makeup lessons may be granted if the timing is possible. If it is not possible, a customized video lesson will be issued. 

If a teacher misses a lesson, we will give the student a make-up lesson at the earliest convenience.

Make-up lessons must be completed during the current school year (September-May). 

Makeup lessons may not be available during June and cannot be carried over to the next school year.
