There are no refunds for missed lessons, and no guaranteed make-up lessons. Your lesson time is reserved exclusively for you. The Music & Dance School does not assume any responsibility for missed lessons for any reason. Maximum number of make-up opportunities allowed per student is 8 total, per 12-month period, from June 15 to June 15 of the following calendar year. You will only be eligible for a make-up opportunity if you have given the Music School & Dance Academy advance notice, by contacting us by 12:00 noon on the day of the lesson. Make-up opportunities are provided on the terms of the Music School & Dance School's availability and convenience. The Music & Dance School provides make-ups strictly as a courtesy. If you schedule a make-up class and then miss that make-up for any reason, without giving 24 hour notice, it still counts as your make-up lesson. Make-up lessons are a courtesy for registered/active students only.
HOW TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR A MAKE-UP COURTESY
If you will be missing a class, call us and leave a message on our absence line, or email. You must provide the required advanced notice of 12:00 noon on the day of your lesson to be eligible for a make-up courtesy. There are no guaranteed make-up lessons, as these can only be offered if another student misses their lesson. Make-up courtesies are provided on the terms of the Music School & Dance Academy's availability and convenience. If you are eligible for a make-up, you will be emailed a list of make-up courtesies to select for sign-ups. All families are responsible for their own make-up lesson sign ups. This system works on a first-respond / first-serve basis. Once you have received your 8 annual make-up courtesies for the 12-month period, you are not eligible for make-ups again until the next annual cycle.
Your make-up lesson may be with a different teacher.
CHORUS, GLEE , KIDS' UKULELE BAND, ROCK JAZZ COMBO STUDENTS
There are no make-ups for these classes, as these are ensemble classes, held once a week. We schedule extra rehearsal minutes several weeks before our annual performances.
SUMMER PERFORMING ARTS CAMPS: No make-up classes are offered for this program.
TEACHER ABSENCES: The school will provide another qualified teacher from our staff if your regularly scheduled teacher is ill or otherwise unable to attend a lesson. If we can't arrange an alternate Teacher, we will credit the lesson or class, which will be applied to the next billing cycle.

We understand that playing a musical instrument is one activity of many, but in order to develop musical skills and obtain the most from a private or small group instruction experience, dedicated, regular practice at home is essential. Positive parental support and consistency at home makes a big difference in achieving this goal.
As the legal parent or guardian, I understand that my child's participation in music lessons or off site events with Myriad Music School and Dance Academy may expose him/her to unforeseen risk of personal injury, death or property damage. I hereby acknowledge that I am voluntarily allowing my child to participate in all lessons and events and agree to assume any such risks.

In consideration for being permitted to participate in the School, I hereby agree, for my child, my heirs, administrators, executors and assigns, that I shall indemnify and hold harmless Myriad Music School & Dance Academy from any and all claims, demands, actions or suits arising out of or in connection with my child's participation in any of the School's events.
I give Myriad Music School & Dance Academy permission to authorize emergency medical personnel to carry out such emergency diagnostic and therapeutic procedures as may be necessary for my child, and also permit such treatment procedures to be carried out at, and by local hospitals for my child in the event of an emergency. I understand that any medical expenses will be billed directly to me or my insurance company.
I agree to permit Myriad Music School & Dance Academy staff, agents and other guests to take photographs and/or video and audio recordings during School lessons and performance events without further recourse. I understand that such photographic images, video, or audio recordings of my child may be used for commercial and/or promotional purposes. I further understand that I may opt-out of this release with respect to photographs, video and audio only by filling out and signing a Media Opt-Out form available at the Front Desk of the School.
I affirm that I have read, understand, and agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this contract for music instruction through Myriad Music School. I fully understand that failure to abide by this contract will result in termination of this agreement and membership in the School will be revoked immediately. I understand that I can also review these policies anytime online at www.myriadmusic.net.
