Prepay discount: There will be a 10% discount for those prepaying for the full school year by the students first lesson.
Student Absences/Missed Lessons
When a student signs up for private lessons or classes, he/she is paying for a specific lesson time slot. Since this time slot is reserved for that particular student and no other student can be booked during that time, payment of a lesson is due even when the student is not able to attend. Due to the high volume of students each instructor has and, although, we make every effort to make up missed lessons, it is at the discretion of the instructor to offer a make-up lesson.
In the event that an instructor is absent for any reason, a make-up lessons will be offered to the student. If a student absence is unavoidable, the student is requested to notify the instructor directly as a courtesy.
Please have your child arrive on time for their lessons. If a student arrives late, the instructor is unable to extend the lesson, and lessons will end at the student's scheduled time. Arriving on time maximizes your investment into your child. If you are running late, please contact your Instructor so that he/she knows to wait for you. Otherwise,Instructors will wait for a student for one third of the lesson time before starting another lesson or leaving.
Though this attendance policy may seem strict, it is quite standard among reputable music schools. We find it to be the best way to student attendance and learning.
Instruments and Instrument Rental
A key to learning a new instrument is the practice that a student puts in between lessons; therefore, having an instrument to practice on is a necessity. Students should make arrangements to secure their own instrument prior to their second lesson. Stringed instruments and brass instruments are available for a minimal monthly rental fee at local music stores. An average size keyboard is sufficient for beginner and intermediate piano lessons. These can be purchased at local music stores, Walmart, Radio Shack, etc. Guitars need to be size appropriate. If a student is small, their guitar needs to fit his or her size. Ask your instructor for more information. CAA also gladly accepts donations of quality used instruments for use in the rental program.
Rules of Conduct
Students enrolled in CAA are expected to behave in the same manner they would in any other educational setting. This includes respect for the facilities and the personal property of others and mutual respect for all students, faculty and personnel. If a student’s conduct is deemed disruptive or disrespectful, parents will be advised and appropriate measures will be taken.
Safety & Supervision
Supervision cannot be provided for students left alone before or after their lessons. Parents should wait with their children and/or attend the lessons. Parents dropping off students at the lesson location and leaving do so at their own risk.
