The Conservatory observes a NO MAKE-UP POLICY for student absences. Please notify the Conservatory Office by calling (254) 295-4686 if a lesson or class will be missed so that we may notify the instructor.
Students will receive make-ups for lessons or classes cancelled due to teacher absences or weather-related closings. Closing announcements will be recorded on the Conservatory's answering machine.
Termination of Lessons, Classes and/or Ensembles
Each student who registers for lessons will be assigned a lesson time for the semester. Termination of lessons/classes/ensembles is appropriate only at the end of the semester or at the discretion of the Conservatory Director. There are no refunds except under extreme circumstance.
At least two solo recital dates are offered each semester. Students are encouraged (but not required) to perform. Students who perform in a Conservatory recital or concert are required to remain for the entire recital or concert out of respect for all of the performers. It is our desire that our students not only learn outstanding performance skills, but also proper audience etiquette.
