FALL 2020 MAKE-UP GROUP STUDIO CLASS DATES

The Group Studio Class is a great opportunity for students to meet one another, perform in front of their peers, give positive and constructive feedback, do group playing exercises with scales, etudes, and games.  Our teachers do not offer more than one of these classes per month, so attending this lesson will be counted as make-up for all the month’s absences.

CANCELLATION POLICIES

EXCUSED CANCELLATIONS:

If a student is sick, has a sports/activity schedule conflict, planned family vacation, or a family emergency arises they can make up a missed lesson by attending a group studio class. Our teachers do not offer more than one of these classes per month, so attending this lesson will be counted as make-up for all the month’s absences.   Teachers request 24 hours notice when possible and reserve the right to send a child home if they appear too sick to attend lessons. Students also may utilize the option to take a lesson via Zoom at their regular lesson time if they don't wish to miss their lesson.

UNEXCUSED ABSENCES:

Teacher has no obligation to offer a make-up lesson or refund.  This applies equally to scheduled Zoom lessons or in-person.

  • No-shows 

  • Cancellations made with less than 24 hours notice for anything other than emergency or illness.

 

LONG TERM ABSENCES:

If a student must miss lessons for a long period of time due to injury, monthly tuition payments may be put on hold until the student can return, or we can continue lessons and work on non-instrument topics like Music Theory, Music History, Sight Singing, Songwriting, Jazz Theory, Piano Basics and more!  If student is on a semester payment plan, a prorated credit or refund may be issued to the family.

TEACHER ABSENCES:

Our teachers reserve the right to cancel lessons due to illness or professional obligations. We have built in one week of sick days each semester.  Once these days have been used up, the teachers are obligated to offer a rescheduled private lesson time or the student may choose to attend the monthly group studio class.

 

SNOW DAYS:

Artwork Strings Music Studios bases its school cancellations on the Missoula County Public school system; therefore, if MCPS closes due to inclement weather, Artwork Strings will also close to in-person lessons.  Students may either opt for a Zoom lesson instead or may attend a future group studio class. 

LESSON TERMINATION:

Teachers reserve the right to cease lessons with a student if they have more than one unexcused absence, more than three excused absences, or more than four blatantly unprepared lessons. Lessons may also be terminated if tuition has not been paid.  We ask for 2 weeks notice for students to declare that they wish to permanently cancel lessons.  If a student on the monthly tuition payment plan wishes to end lessons, no refund will be given for the remainder of the month, and lessons will terminate on the 1st of the new month.  If a student on the semester payment plan wishes to end lessons, no refund will be given for the remainder of the month but they will be issued a prorated refund for the remaining months starting from the 1st of the new month.

ZOOM LESSONS 

For Covid-19 school scheduling, weather-related, or sickness-related absences, online lessons must still take place at the student’s regularly scheduled weekly time and cannot be rescheduled for a different day.  These are meant as an in-home alternative to coming in to the studio. If you are opting for an online lesson during a family vacation, we will set up a convenient time to have the lesson.

  • Please have Zoom installed on your computer or large tablet so you have a large screen, and have the camera and microphone connected so we can see and hear each other.  A simple webcam+mic will work for PC users, or Mac users can use the camera+mic that is built into your laptop, desktop computer, or iPad.
