Frequently Asked Questions.

Enrollment is on a month-to-month basis. To experience true growth in the instrument of choice, we recommend studying for six months to one year. Most students are able to perform a recognizable song within three months.

Students enrolled in the private study are afforded three make-up lessons per year. (Based on the students anniversary date)

Continuity is one of the most valuable components of study and it’s important for our students to understand that studying music is a commitment if you want to truly experience growth. After the third make-up lesson, missed lessons are forfeited.

There are some exceptions where more than three make-up lessons are provided which include, but are not limited to illness, emergencies, honor ensemble rehearsals, and performances outside of the Conservatory.

The make-up policy is to deter families from canceling for convenience. Aside from continuity, with the number of students we serve, scheduling becomes rather difficult for both students and the instructor.

Missed classes must be forfeited due to the nature of the offering.

A student’s age depends on the instrument of choice. We understand a five-year-old probably shouldn’t learn to play the tuba just yet. But aside from size, elements such as attention span, maturity, and the ability to comprehend are considered when determining the age to begin studying music.

All of our instruments have age-appropriate restrictions, but a student may be exempt on a case-by-case basis.

We have Baby Bops classes for younger students from birth to age five.
