  • Students can switch lesson days/times mid-year, but only as availability allows. We suggest giving at least 30-days notice to switch lesson times to allow for the most options.

Makeup credits can be used year-round and are reset every August.

 

  • If you know you will be missing your lesson, please mark yourself absent via the student portal to keep our instructors up to speed and allow another student to claim your lesson slot for the week.
