Absence & Refund Policies:

Lessons missed by the instructor will be credited to the student’s account. One individual lesson per 12 registered lessons missed by a student may be made up during each year provided that notice of the absence has been given to the registrar (215-204-1180) at least 24 hours before the scheduled lesson. It is the student’s responsibility to schedule the makeup lesson with the teacher; should an appointment for a makeup lesson be canceled by the student, the lesson will be considered made up. Any student absence not made up will be forfeited.

It is the responsibility of individual-lesson students at Music Prep to maintain proper practice on their instruments, regularly attend lessons, and be prepared and prompt for lessons. It is also expected that all future tuition payments will be made as scheduled. Temple Music Prep reserves the right to cancel registration or deny re-registration based on these or other factors, as necessary.
