  • For example, a student who would like to withdraw for the month of April, written notification must be given on or before March 15th.
  • Failure to notify the studio by the 15th will result in a student being held responsible for the upcoming month’s full tuition.

Cancellations
The Music 101 academic year is broken up into 3 Sessions:
​         Session I:   September 3, 2019 - December 20, 2019
         Session II:  January 2, 2020 - March 31, 2020
         Session III:  April 1, 2020 - June 26, 2020

  • Same-day cancellations will not be credited, refunded, or rescheduled.  No exceptions.
  • A credit not used from one Session cannot be rolled into the next.  
  • Credits cannot be transferred between siblings who are taught by different teachers. 


Rescheduled/ Make-Up Lessons

  • The Music 101 schedule often does not allow for rescheduled lessons and therefore cannot be guaranteed. Our credit system has been designed with this in mind.
  • IF a reschedule is possible, the student will be placed within his/her current teacher’s hours. 
  • Students cannot be rescheduled to a different teacher.  
  • Any reschedules cancelled by the student cannot be credited or scheduled again.


Illness

  • There are no credits, refunds, or reschedules for students who same-day cancel due to illness.  
  • Students must be fever free for a full 24 hours before attending a lesson. 
  • Music 101 reserves the right to send students home if any staff member believes the student is too ill to attend a lesson. 
  • Music 101 cannot refund the cost of a lesson to a student sent home sick.


Substitute Policy
When a teacher is to be absent, Music 101 believes in the policy of another member of the staff substituting for the day.  All students follow a similar methodology in lessons.  This enables members of the faculty to seamlessly cover each others lessons when the need arises. 


Parking
Please be aware that Music 101 does not have access to a driveway.  Parking is available on the opposite side of the street. Please respect our neighbors by not using their driveways to park or turn around.  Thank you for your cooperation. 


Pick-up /  Drop-off

Please note the following:  There is a “No Stopping or Standing” sign directly in front of the Music 101 building.  There is no active caregiver assigned by Music 101 to watch children in the waiting area or outdoor courtyard.  If it is necessary to drop-off or pick-up your student more than 10 minutes before his/her lesson, the student must wait quietly.  If a student is waiting for more than 20 minutes to be picked-up, Music 101 will call the primary number on file. 


Studio Etiquette
Please refrain from bringing any type of food, drink, or candy into the studio.  Siblings must wait quietly in the reception area if they are to remain during the lesson time.  Only currently enrolled students may attend lessons.  Please keep pets outside.

Music 101 does not follow the weather related school cancellations.  Information about our studio closing will be available after 12:00PM.  Please call the studio or check the website for updates.
