Missed Lesson Policy
There are no make-ups for lessons missed or canceled on the day of the lesson, and tuition is still due as normal. Remember, you are paying for a lesson time, not the lesson itself.
Make-ups are only possible when I am contacted by phone or email at least 24 hours before a scheduled lesson.
Extended absences: If you need to take a month’s break (or longer) at any time during the year, there are two options: (1) I fill your time slot with a student from the waiting list and when you are ready to resume lessons, I bump you to the top of the waiting list. (2) Pay your normal monthly tuition to retain your lesson time for your return. Please note: There are no schedule or policy changes during summer. Please call ahead of time to arrange make-ups for traveling.
My intention is to have a missed-lesson policy that is simple and easy to administer, and one that honors the value of my time in that if someone fails to show up for their lesson, that same portion of my day is still spent preparing and waiting for their scheduled arrival, and thus deserves the normal compensation. Also, that portion of my schedule is contracted out to that individual in lieu of other students on my waiting list who are eagerly awaiting and available for any possible openings.
