Studio Policies

MYC Group Lessons Policies

Here are a few studio reminders for the year:

General Studio: Once inside the studio, please remove your shoes. There is a waiting area in the studio if you arrive early. Older siblings capable of reading quietly may wait in the waiting area during a class.  Please do not bring siblings into the class. Please be respectful to our neighbors and keep the noise down when you enter the studio.

Missed classes:  If possible, notify your teacher if you will miss a class by calling (604)767-0136 or email melisamyc@gmail.com. To have the homework emailed to you email your teacher as soon as you can.

Withdrawal from classes:  As it is not possible to replace students who leave the program mid-year, if you need to withdraw it is studio policy to withhold two cheques in addition to the month in which you leave.

Late arrivals:  We will do our best to start and end each class on time.  If you are running late please make sure that you are ready with books out before you enter the class.  If you are more then a few minutes late homework will be checked at the end of class if there is time or the following week.

Classroom behaviour:  We all know that occasionally kids have off days.  If yours is having one, please attend to him promptly so that others are not disrupted/distressed.  You may use the waiting room for a break if you need to in order that everyone feels safe and respected.  Rough handling of classroom materials will not be tolerated.

Private Lessons Policies

  • Missed Lessons – Students must notify me of a lesson cancellation a minimum of 24 hours prior to lesson time. If at least 24 hours’ notice is given, then a makeup lesson maybe scheduled at the earliest possible date. If less than 24 hours’ notice is given, students will be charged for the scheduled lesson and no makeup lesson will be given. Students are given the opportunity for 1 makeup lesson per term. If I cancel a lesson due to unforeseen/special circumstances, students will be reimbursed fully and rescheduled at both parties’ earliest convenience.
  • Recitals – As recitals require effort and expense and are a most valuable learning experience for children they are counted and charged as lessons.
  • Withdrawal from classes – As it takes time to replace students who leave the program mid-year, if you need to withdraw it is studio policy to withhold one cheque in addition to the month in which you leave.
  • Please be quiet when entering the studio and no playing in front of the studio – for insurance purposes as well as out of respect for all neighbour.
