Semester Lesson System at HSDA

As of September 1st, 2016


Our semesters:

1st Semester: Jan. 31st to June 30th (5 months: Feb-Mar-Apr-May-Jun)

2nd Semester: Sept. 1st to Jan. 31st (5 months: Sep-Oct-Nov-Dec-Jan)

Students must be enrolled in specific lesson days & times during each semester. You must contact us by e-mail or written note if you wish to add, drop or change any lessons. Changes are to be made between semesters: The end of January, or during the months of July & August. Give us at least 2 weeks notice of any change. There is a $10 per change charge if you change your class during the semester.

Notes about tuition payments:

The tuition will remain the same, and you can pay year round in the option you find most convenient. No changes are needed if you are paying the regular (quarterly) or semi-annual tuition. Only the actual lessons taken 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. Hirschl directly.

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.
