Missed lessons, like all pre-booked professional time, will be charged for. If there is enough notice given, I (Anna) will try to reschedule a lesson during teaching hours that same week. If your child is sick and enough notice is given, an online lesson can be arranged via WhatsApp or Zoom. However, if the student was sick or an unplanned event came up, and notice was not given, I will not be able to 'bank' missed lessons to a later date. Family emergencies are an exception. If I am the one who cancels, I will always arrange a makeup lesson. Lesson make-ups and rescheduling are always based on the teacher's decision and schedule.
Piano Lesson payments are due at the beginning of the month, on the 1st by 5 pm.
Musikgarten classes are based on a 6- week semester. Prices vary depending on the class. Ongoing enrollment is accepted up until mid-semester, and the fee will change based on the full amount of weeks left in the semester. There are no make up classes for an individual student's missed class, however if a class is cancelled then there will be a make up class offered for the group. If you are registered for a class and are unable to attend due to family emergency or health concerns, please let me know and I will record the class for you or offer it as an online class. There are ways to participate even if you are unable to be in the same room!
Due to the recent global and local health concerns of the COVID-19 Virus, I am taking extra precaution in my music studio. The health and well being of my students, their families and myself are top priorities. I will follow the guidelines of Canada's Health Officials and their recommendations. Any scheduled lesson or class can be done via zoom online if a student is feeling unwell. Thank you for your patience and understanding!
Frequent handwashing and/or hand sanitizing is encouraged before, during and after each lesson or class. Musikgarten Classes will be held outdoors as long as the weather permits.
Let's continue to bring the joy of music to your family in a safe and respectful manner!
Due to the current COVID-19 health crisis, online music lessons have become a new tool and way to continue learning music through Anna's Hummingbird Music Studio. The studio has now opened up again for in-person lessons, however the online learning format will be used if a child (or teacher) is feeling sick. The health of our community is a priority! The online lesson format will be through Zoom. Families are encouraged to have a system set up prior to the lesson. For piano lessons, the students hands and piano keys must be visible.
