There are no lessons the week of Thanksgiving, 2 weeks of winter break, the week of Spring break, and the last week of May. Please see the studio calendar for full details. All other holidays (Labor Day, Good Friday, etc.) will have regularly scheduled lessons. There are 34 lessons between September-May and 12 lessons from June-August.
Pick up and Drop off – the safety of your children
No one is available to watch your children before and after lessons. Please arrange drop-off and pick-up accordingly, and/or remain in the building while your children are taking lessons. Please supervise children in the waiting room. Velocity Music Academy is not responsible for the safety of your child before or after their regularly scheduled lesson times. This includes, but is not limited to: early drop off, late pick-up, or arriving at the academy at an incorrect lesson time.
Parents are responsible for scheduling regular practice times at home, optimally 4-7 days per week. It is important to supervise practice during the first year of study, and for younger students (ages 5-8.) Teachers will provide a detailed list of what to practice during the week. Parents are welcome at any time to sit in on lessons to observe what the student is learning. If you have any questions about practicing, please discuss the issues with your child’s teacher during their lesson.
Out of respect to others, please do not bring your child to the studio if they display any signs of illness (coughing, sneezing, sore throat, vomiting, nausea, fever, rashes, or diarrhea). We reserve the right to send any sick student home.
Withdrawing from lessons
A30-day notice is required to discontinue lessons. To discontinue lessons, you must e-mail email@example.com. A student may be dismissed for: repeated failure to attend lessons, behavior or attitude problems, or nonpayment of tuition. If you stop lessons and decide to re-enroll at a later date, the enrollment fee will be charged to your first month’s bill.
Velocity Music Academy is hereby granted permission to take photographs and videos of students to use in online and print promotional materials. Last names are never published. If you would not like for your child’s pictures to be used in our materials, please inform us in writing.
