Hirschl for details.
Any lessons taken
that the student is not enrolled in (other than verified makeup lessons) are considered "drop-ins" and will
be charged at the single lesson rate.
Tuition payments: The semester
system concerns the classes you are enrolled in, not the tuition. Tuition will remain the same and you can
pay year round using the option you find most convenient. No changes are needed if you are paying the regular (quarterly),
semi-annual or monthly tuition. Only the lessons are set on the semester system, not tuition payments. It is assumed
that students are taking lessons year round, so the tuition can still be paid the way you've been paying. For details,
refer to the HSDA Policy Sheet. If any change to your tuition is not detailed on the Policy Sheet, you must speak with Mr.
Makeup Lessons: You must contact us in advance of missing a lesson
to get a makeup lesson. You must let us know which lesson you intend to take as a makeup. Makeup lessons must be made within
4 weeks of the missed lesson. Read the Policy Sheet page for details on Makeup lessons.
