New Music School Attendance Policy
Students should plan to be in attendance at all scheduled lessons. Regular lesson attendance is important to maintain the quality of your education. We do understand that legitimate reasons occur for missing a lesson, so we are allowing one excused absence for any reason during each semester.
The missed lesson must be made up by the end of the semester or it will be forfeited by the student and NMS will not issue a refund.
Lessons missed due to following reasons will not be counted against students as missed lessons:
- NMS scheduled events (such as recitals or festivals) which directly conflict with a scheduled lesson time.
- NMS scheduled semester breaks, though students may still elect to take lessons during semester breaks pending on the availability of their instructor.
- The absence of the instructor - If you would like to maintain the consistency of your lessons while your primary instructor is away, we will consult with them and arrange for an approved substitute.
Prime time lessons between 3-8pm and weekends are prioritized for students who commit to weekly lesson times.
For questions about policies, billing and rates, please contact our administration. For individual questions about scheduling, please contact your instructor.
