Attendance policy

If I cancel a lesson for any reason (illness, weather, gig) I will provide a make-up lesson.
If the student cancels a lesson with at least 24-hours notice, I am willing to teach a make-up lesson in the following month.
Anything under 24-hours notice is subject to no make-up lesson, except under specific circumstances (family emergency, illness, etc).
If a student is cancelling half or more of their monthly lessons on a regular basis, they will be at risk of losing their spot in the studio.
