Lesson credits expire 4 months after the date input and may not be rescheduled once redeemed. Credits will automatically expire if student becomes inactive.


Staff Obligations:

The instructors are professional musicians, therefore, occasional lessons may be missed due to performance obligations. Should a teacher be away, a qualified guest instructor will be provided or an offer to reschedule the lesson time. Due to the nature of coordinating time slots and the schedules of instructors and students, it may be necessary to reassign a student to another instructor. Per the instructor contract, please do not solicit our instructors as they are not permitted to teach MMW students outside of the studio.       


Practice Expectations:

Students must own an instrument and are required to practice at home. The recommended amount of practice time will be discussed with the student depending on their age/skill level. You may be asked to purchase curriculum books or additional materials; books are available at the studio for purchase. Please be sure to bring these to each lesson.

MMW will not be liable for the disappearance, loss or theft of, or damage to, personal property (this includes musical instruments and books). Please label everything that comes into the studio and feel free to look through the studio lost & found.  


Behavior Expectations: Students are expected to be respectful of the instructors and staff at MMW, along with other students and studio equipment. Failure to abide by these expectations may result in the disenrollment of that student.


Parental Support: Encourage consistent practice habits and uninterrupted time for practice. Please be on time for the lesson and make sure your student brings the correct materials. Students remain parent’s responsibility before and following the lesson time. Students need to be promptly picked up at the end of their lesson time.Students arriving late for their lessons will not be given extra lesson time. Parents please be at the studio a few minutes before the lesson ends to receive communication from the instructor.
