Absence & Refund Policies
Lessons missed by the instructor will be rescheduled. One individual lesson per 12 registered lessons missed by a student may be made up during each year at the convenience of the instructor, provided that notice of the absence has been given to the Registrar (215.204.1180) at least 24 hours before the scheduled lesson. Should the appointment for a make-up lesson be canceled by the student, the lesson will be considered as having been made up. Student absences beyond this allotment or without proper notification will be considered unexcused and, therefore, forfeited.

It is the responsibility of an individual-lesson student at Temple Music Prep to maintain proper practice on their instrument and to regularly attend lessons being prepared and prompt. 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.
