Promptness at lessons and rehearsals is expected. Students who are late for their private lesson cannot be guaranteed their full lesson time. Teachers who are tardy for a student's lesson are required to make up the time by extending past the scheduled lesson time or by arranging to make up the time on another occasion. Ensemble members should note that a maximum of two absences is allowed per semester in order to perform in the corresponding concert; dress rehearsals are mandatory.
If a student will be absent from a private lesson, they are encouraged to contact their teacher via the preferred method outlined in the front of the Academy notebook. If an ensemble member is going to be absent, they can submit their absence using the online form.
