MISSED LESSONS 

There are no make-up lessons for missed lessons, except for the following reasons:

1. Scheduled lesson falls on a Federal holiday.

2. Instructor cancels lesson but agrees to reschedule at a time mutually agreeable to the student.

However, we do understand that students may be unable to attend a lesson due to illness, vacation or other reasons.  Therefore, with at least a 24 hour notification ahead of the weekly scheduled lesson, we will make every effort to reschedule your lesson based on instructor availability.  If  there is availability in the schedule, the rescheduled lesson will take place at an alternate time/day within the week.  Also, for students that take lessons in-person at the music studio, an online lesson via Skype,  Zoom or FaceTime may be requested as an alternative to missing a lesson.  Additionally, on inclement weather days, students that normally take lessons in-person will take their lesson online as the lesson will not be canceled.

LESSON SCHEDULE CHANGE

After students/parents have registered for music lessons, a regular weekly lesson schedule is reserved on the teaching schedule.  If scheduling conflicts arise repeatedly, it is highly recommended that you consider requesting a new regular weekly schedule as slots become available. Submit a written request to the Studio Director and a list of available music slots will be provided for your consideration.

TEACHING SCHEDULE

The studio provides music instruction year-round with breaks throughout the year.  Please check the music studio calendar on a regular basis.  The music studio calendar can be accessed by registered students/parents by logging into your music studio account.

WITHDRAWAL FROM LESSONS

Keep in mind that fluctuations in interest are perfectly normal and should not signal an end to your musical training. Please consult your teacher before making any decisions about lesson termination.

If you decide to withdraw from lessons, a 30-day notice from the 1st of the month, in writing, is required to the Studio Director.  If a one full month notice is not provided, tuition for the entire month is still due and must be paid, whether you attend or not.

OBSERVATION OF LESSONS

Bryant’s Music has an open door policy for observing lessons. Parents are encouraged and welcome to observe his/her child’s lesson at anytime. However, in order to have the student’s undivided attention, siblings and friends must remain in the lounge area under the supervision of an adult.

PHOTOS AND RECORDINGS

Bryant’s Music reserves the right to photograph and record (audio/video) students in recitals, instruction and rehearsals.  Photographs and recordings of students are for promotional purposes and may be used on our website and other media communications.  By participating in Bryant’s Music programs, you consent to the taking and publication of your photographs and recordings (audio/video) for Bryant’s Music promotional use without compensation.

STUDENT PROGRESS

The instructors will be unable to discuss student progress with parents before or after the lesson since other students have lessons at those times. Parents, sit in on your child’s lesson, call the Studio, or schedule an appointment with the instructor, if you have concerns or questions. The best time to call the Studio is Monday-Friday, in the morning. E-mail and text messages are highly encouraged.

TIMELINESS

Students are expected to be on time for lessons, as well as be picked up on time, according to the agreed upon scheduled lesson time.

CHILD SAFETY

To ensure your child’s safety, please be sure to pick him/her up promptly after lesson time. Bryant’s Music instructors do not supervise children waiting before and/or after lessons. Children are under supervision during their instruction time. Bryant’s Music instructors are not responsible for supervising children outside of the teaching time.

PARKING

Ample parking is available on the street directly in front of the Studio. Please do not park, drop-off, or pick-up students in the driveway.

As a courtesy to your instructor, please notify the Studio at least 24 hours in advance of absence from a scheduled lesson.
