  2. Students who are more than 15 minutes late for a lesson cannot be guaranteed their lesson time.
  3. If a student is running late or is unable to make it to their scheduled lesson, please make the front desk aware by calling 801-893-2417 and they will be sure to let your instructor know.

Student Caused Absence: (Makeup Lesson Policy)

At The Piano Place, we know it is important to you, which is why it is VERY important to us that we provide a make-up option when you have to miss a lesson. Unlike many other studios who enforce a strict "NO make-up policy," we have experimented with several different approaches over the years trying to strike a perfect balance with being flexible and accommodating with our amazing students while also being mindful and respectful of our teachers and their time. 

  1. In the event a student cannot make it to their weekly lesson, they should please call or email their studio’s front desk (see contact info below) at least 24 hours in advance. 
  2. If sufficient notice is given, the front desk will then send an email with a link and an access code to sign up for the Make-up Master Class. 
  3. Make-up Master Classes will be 45 minutes long and will be held on the last Saturday of every month at each studio location starting at 10am. The classes will be taught by approved Piano Place instructors. 
  4. Students MUST report their absence through the front desk via email or phone call 24 hours in advance to be eligible. 
  5. Students MUST attend the Make-up Master Class offered during the same month of their absence. Passes will not roll over month to month. 
    • The only exception to this will be during the three summer months of June, July and August. During these months, student's Make-up Master Class passes CAN roll over to provide more leniency and flexibility as we know summer can be especially busy. Please note this only applies to the months of June, July and August.
  6. This is the policy for "student caused absences" only. If ever one of our teachers causes the absence we will follow the "teacher caused absence" listed below. 
  7. If the student cannot attend the Make-up Master Class, but doesn't want to forfeit the lesson entirely, the time slot is still yours and can be used in one of the following ways:
    1. Remote Lesson: Technology these days is amazing and we have found great success in doing lessons via FaceTime, Skype, Google Hangout, phone call etc during the student's regular lesson time. Even if you aren't near your instrument, this time can also be used to call into your teacher, ask them questions and have them move you forward on lesson assignments. 
    2. Send Someone In Their Place: Because the time slot is yours and by enrolling you are essentially reserving a slot of time in your teachers schedule, you can use it how ever you'd like. This means if you have another child that has been wanting to try lessons or even if you yourself want to come see what its all about, you can! You can even use the time to come in and hold a  parent teacher conference with your instructor. Whatever you decide, our teachers will be there and ready to teach. 
  8. No refund or monetary credit will be provided for "student caused absences."

Teacher Caused Absence: (Substitute Policy)

  1. Our teachers place the utmost priority on attending their scheduled lessons. If for whatever reason they are unable to teach a lesson, a substitute teacher or a make-up lesson will be arranged. If a substitute can’t be arranged due to short notice and you are unable to coordinate a make-up time with your teacher, a lesson credit will be issued to your account.
  2. If your regular teacher becomes unavailable for any reason, The Piano Place will provide a new teacher with similar teaching style, or give you the opportunity to choose a new teacher.

Calendar:

  1. The Piano Place uses the word term to break down the calendar year.
  2. Our terms break down as follows: Spring (January- June) / Summer (June - August) / Fall (August - December).
  3. Time slots automatically roll over from term to term so there is no need to re-sign up between terms. If there is a conflict with your lesson time and a change is necessary, please get in contact with Piano Place enrollment.
  4. If a student intends to withdraw from lessons at the end of any given term, they still need to follow the official withdrawal policy stated above.

Referral Program:

  1. The Piano Place will apply a $20 referral credit to any family that refers another family to take lessons. Please email [email protected] with your name and the referred families name to redeem this credit.

Indemnification:

  1. Client assumes all risk of injury of harm to the child(ren) or adult(s) associated with participation in musical activities at The Piano Place and agree to release, indemnify, defend and forever discharge The Piano Place and its owners from all liability, claims, demands, damages, costs, and expenses in the unlikely event of injury sustained by your child(ren) or adult student during the course or as a result of their participation in The Piano Place’s  musical activities, recitals, or lessons.
  1. The Piano Place is not responsible for providing before or after class care for students.

Photo/Video Release:

  1. Unless requested in writing, The Piano Place is granted permission to take photographs/videos of the students to use in brochures, websites, posters, advertisements, newsletters, social media and other promotional materials The Piano Place creates.  Permission is also hereby granted for The Piano Place Studio to copyright such photographs in its name.
