The Music 101 academic year is broken up into 3 Sessions:
​         Session I:   August 31, 2020 - December 23, 2020
         Session II:  January 4, 2021 - March 31, 2021
         Session III:  April 1, 2021 - June 25, 2021 

  • Music 101 will credit 1 cancelled lesson per Session with a 24 hour advance notice.  The deduction for the credit will appear on the following month’s invoice.
  • Same-day cancellations will not be credited, refunded, or rescheduled.  No exceptions.
  • A credit not used from one Session can not be rolled into the next.  
  • Credits can not 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 their current teacher’s hours. 
  • Students will not be rescheduled to a different teacher.  
  • Any reschedules cancelled by the student will not be credited or scheduled again.

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. 

Voluntary Withdrawal of both Virtual and In-Person Classes

  • In order to withdraw from the lesson program, Music 101 requires written notification by the 15th day of the month prior to when lessons will end.  
    • 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.  
  • If a student wishes to terminate lessons within a month that has been paid for, a refund will not be given for the remaining lessons.​

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.  We ask that you do not drop your student off more than 10 minutes prior to class and that you are prompt with your pickups to help maintain social distancing while at the studio.  All students must wait inside the studio for their caregiver to arrive.  

Snow Cancellations
Music 101 does not follow the weather related school cancellations.  Information about our studio closing will be available after 12:00 PM.  Please call the studio or check the website for updates.  In the event of a necessary closure due to weather, Music 101 will teach virtual classes that day.

Music 101 is proud to host annual recitals during the month of June for our students to showcase the skills they diligently acquire throughout the year.  Recitals are a great opportunity to become inspired by the music of a student's peer as well.  We hope to be able to return to in-person recitals in 2021.

Studio Etiquette
Please refrain from bringing any type of food, drink, or candy into the studio.  In order to follow social distance guidelines, family and guardians may not remain in the waiting area during a student’s lesson.  Only currently enrolled students may attend lessons.  Please keep pets outside.
