Suzuki Summer Policies:

There is no minimum number of lessons and the lessons do not need to be consecutive. Students taking lessons with a different teacher must obtain permission from their teacher. Further, the Suzuki Program discourages students from taking lessons with two different teachers if the weeks & teachers alternate back and forth, or similar scenarios. Families are required to get permission in writing from their primary teacher to have an arrangement like this. If the primary teacher did not approve the arrangement, tuition is forfeit.

Weekly, a registrar will send emails out to all registered families of the lessons they have signed up for.
Emails will be sent immediately if a student is changing their bookings.

Students can make changes through the first week of the summer semester, through June 24. Starting June 25, no more changes can be made.

There are no makeups for student missed absences. There are no refunds for the summer semester. Any lessons missed by faculty will be made up or a sub provided.

Please note there are different policies for Conservatory Division Students.
