HOW DO SUMMER MUSIC LESSONS WORK?

Q: How do lessons work in the Summer?

A: The Academy is open year round, and we do not close during the Summer.

Q: Do a lot of student quit during the Summer?

A: For the past 3 years, we have grown in enrollment each june by at least 2%. Some students withdrawal but we get a huge influx of students in May & June and many continue into the Fall. We enrolled over 150 new student in the Summer of 2016!

Q: How full is my teachers schedule?

A: The majority of our teachers are booked completely solid from 3:30-8:30pm and we currently have a waiting list with over 70 people on it.

Q: If we withdrawal for Summer, can we keep our spot for Fall?

A: Lessons are first come, first serve, so if you withdraw for Summer, we cannot guarentee that we will have a spot for you in the Fall as we will open the time slot to new students.

The big questions for all parents and students to consider is: 

DO YOU WANT TO STAY WITH THE SAME TEACHER IN THE FALL? 

If the answer is YES there are 2 ways to do this: 

1. Take advantage of our Summer courtesy make ups!

We realize that some of you will go on vacation for a portion of the Summer, which is why we do offer courtesy make ups. Each family is entitled to two courtesy make ups during the Summer months. Courtesy make ups can be scheduled during any break in a teachers schedule. (we don’t ask teachers to come early, stay late, or come in and teach make ups on weekends). While our teachers do stay very busy we tend to have more cancelations over the summer months which makes it a little easier to schedule courtesy make ups.

It’s very easy to do: just let the front desk know of the dates that you will be missing and schedule your make ups. We can even schedule make up lessons ahead of time before you miss your classes!

2. Sub lease your spot to a family member or friend.

You can send a family member or friend in your place for the dates you will miss. Just let the office know who is coming in your place and when. Make sure that they reimburse you directly for the lessons. If you are taking summer lessons and need a specific time for Fall, please contact us around late July and we will do everything we can to accommodate you.

Each September, we get calls for students who have been with us for years, but withdrew for the summer. They want to return to the same teacher, day and time, but the spot has been filled by another student.

If you LOVE your teacher, keep your spot by using the summer make ups or sublease your spot.
