Scheduled Lesson Times
Students should be dropped off at the studio no less than 5 minutes before their scheduled lesson and should be picked up no later than 5 minutes after their lesson ends. The Academy of Performing Arts at 5678 Dance shall not assume resposibility for students outside the building. Parents who consistently drop students off early or pick up late may be charged a childcare supervision fee of $5 per 15 minutes.
Students are expected to attend lessons on a a regular basis. Lesson times are reserved for one particular student; therefore, absences will not be refunded. You are buying the instructor's time and no else can use your designated time slot. Make-up lessons will not be granted for absences. If you know you will be absent due to a vacation, illness, etc., please notify the instructor immediately. Make-up lessons will be offered only if the instructor must miss a lesson. Students with frequent absences will not be permitted to perform.
Students are expected to be on time and ready to sing or play. If a student is late, the remainding minutes of the time slot will be used for the lesson.
Piano students are required to purchase books and materials for their lessons which will be chosen by the instructor. Voice students will be provided with some materials and music for their lessons, however, additional purchases may be required. These materials must be brought to each lesson. The teachers spend a great deal of time preparing for a lesson and an unprepared student causes time to be lost in training.
