Students will be charged for additional absences after the 6th absence within a calendar Year.** and those credits are not transferable even to the siblings

  • Students may lose  their time slot for any absences that last 3 consecutive weeks or longer (unless they agree to do make-up classes for the 3 consecutive absences)

  • In a case when the teacher is not able to give a lesson, students may choose to get a substitute teacher based on availability.

  • Punctuality: Every student is assigned a specific time slot for his/her lesson. If a student is late, the lesson will  still end at the designated time schedule and no tuition fee adjustment or credit will be made.

  • No make-ups are given for group lesson.

III. Instructor Absences

  • If your current teacher is unable to teach a lesson, a substitute teacher will be arranged.

  • If your regular teacher becomes unavailable, you will be provided a new teacher with similar teaching style, or the opportunity to choose a new teacher.In the event of an instructor absence, the studio reserves the right to provide a qualified substitute or schedule a timely make-up session for lessons missed. 


IV. Lesson  Withdrawals

  • A 30-day written notice is required for students who would like to permanently or temporarily withdraw from lessons. Failure to do so will require student to pay tuition fees for up to the next 30 days. For temporary withdrawals, student must inform  J&F Musician the return date in writing.


V. Safety

  • Student must be accompanied inside the Institute and must be picked up from inside the Institute by an adult. Student under the age of 11 must be supervised in the waiting room until his/her lesson begins. No student will be allowed to leave the studio without his/her parent. Parents assume responsibility to let the teacher or  J&F Musician staff know if someone else will be picking up the student. Parents also assume full responsibility for the student's safety inside and outside the Institute.


VI. Practice

  • The effectiveness of private and group lessons will be limited if sufficient practice isn’t happening at home. It is the student’s and parent’s responsibility to ensure sufficient quality practice time happens each week. If you have questions regarding how much you should be practicing or what are good practice techniques, please speak with your instructor.


VII.  Parents’Role

  • Praise and encouragement are the parents' greatest tools in helping your young musicians. Sit down and listen to your child's practice from time to time.  It is very motivating for your children to give comments upon the improvement you hear. Your involvement and encouragement will let your child know how much you really enjoy music and want to share it with them.

  • Talk to the teacher about any questions you or your child may have. Communication is important to a good learning relationship! Parents may attend lessons at the discretion of the teacher, and Parent-Teacher Conferences are available upon request.

VIII. Photo and Video Permission

  • I give consent for photos and video of my child to be used in J&F Musician promotional materials, brochures, flyers, print ads, and school websites. I understand students will not be identified by name on any promotional materials or photos unless permission has been granted by the parent/guardian.
