    GROUP CLASS STUDENT
    A Group Class Student is a student who participates in a group with the same group class instructor and group class members for the school year (Sept-June). Group class students can participate in a minimum of 2 performance opportunities throughout the year. They acknowledge that this a committed group effort and that no more than two absences will be permitted. (See MISSED LESSONS for further details). They also agree that once they have begun a semester that they are committed to the performance at the end of each year (December & June).

    SEMESTERS
    There are two semesters per year. Semester 1: September through December; Semester 2: January through June

    PAYING BY CREDIT CARD
    All payments by Visa and MasterCard are subject to a 3% Merchant Credit Card Fee.

    MISSED LESSONS
    No make­up lessons or classes will take place if a student misses any group class. A make­up lesson will take place in the event of a school closure or teacher absence. If a student misses two lessons with unexplained absences during the school year, we will get in contact to reconfirm their commitment to their group. Students who miss more than two lessons without an explanation may not be able to participate in the performances. Group classes are a team of students and one student who is not attending lessons will dramatically impact the effectiveness of group learning and will negatively affect the performances.

    LIMITATIONS WITHDRAWING FROM GROUP LESSONS
    Students wishing to withdraw from groups lessons must provide 8 weeks advanced notice. No refunds are provided within that time frame and students are encouraged to fufill their obligaiton to their teammates during their last 8 weeks.

    STUDENTS ARRIVING LATE
    No lesson time will be made up if a student arrives late for any lesson.

    TEACHER ABSENCE
    Elite Music Academy reserves the right to have a supply teacher teach a lesson in the event a teacher is ill, absent or unavailable. If Elite Music Academy can not provide a supply teacher, the students will receive a make­up lesson for each lesson a teacher is away. If an instructor plans to be away for an extended period of time, a supply teacher will be arranged.

    HOLIDAY / SNOW DAY / SCHOOL CLOSURE
    Lessons will be made up in the event that lessons fall on a statutory holiday or are cancelled by Elite Music Academy.
