Musica Academy offers both in-person and online lessons. Please note that we recommend meeting with the teacher once a month in person. Details can be arranged with the teacher. Online students will be required to provide scanned copies of their music to their teacher prior to their lesson.
MAKEUP & WITHDRAWAL
Missed Classes (Private Lessons)
Private students are required to provide a 24-hour notice to be eligible for make-up classes. Make-ups must be taken during your current semester. No make-ups for last-minute cancellations on the same day of the lesson.
(Max 2 per semester. Max 4 per year.)
Missed Group lessons are not eligible for make-up classes. The parent may contact their instructor to inquire about the homework given for the class they missed via phone call or email. If the teacher cancels the class due to illness or other reasons, a substitute will be provided for the day's class. If a substitute cannot be provided, a makeup lesson will be scheduled by the teacher.
Students needing extra help may book 30/45-minute sessions with our practice coach for individual coaching. All of our practice coaches are senior-level group students and have been studying music with Musica for over 5 years.
