CAN I KEEP MY SPOT IF I STOP FOR A MONTH(S) OR SUMMER? 

Yes - if you pay to retain it. We suggest the following if you will be away:

  • Webcam lessons
  • Double sessions before or after you return (if available) when gone a week or two
  • Extended 1 hour 40 minute session (equal to 1 month of lessons) when gone a month
  • Otherwise, the time is usually filled by (1) existing students, (2) waiting list people, (3) or the public
  • You are welcome to return if we have an opening

Studies show 70% of students who take the summer off quit because they forget too much and lose interest. This is why we encourage lessons all year long and take 8 weeks off a year (around holiday times and months with a 5th week). This gives students a break when families want time off while progressing forward musically.
