Frequently Asked Questions
What if I need to miss a lesson? If you need to cancel a lesson, we have pre-scheduled hour-long make-up classes, and signing-up for them is easy. There are learning methods, like Suzuki, that strongly encourage regular group classes to supplement private lessons. There are also a few music schools that actually require group classes in addition to one’s private lessons. Why? Because there are advantages in group class settings that can’t be gained in private lessons. This is our way of introducing these advantages at no extra charge.
