The study of music can be a joyous and rewarding experience. It offers a unique opportunity to develop simultaneously one’s self-expression, artistry and self-discipline. In order to make good progress you will need to do the following:
1. Attend lessons regularly and be on time.
2. Practice every day in a quiet place. Remember that the quality of practice time is as important as quantity.
3. Keep your music and instrument in good order and bring your music to lessons.
4. Attend live music performances at every opportunity. Current Mountain Top students may attend any Mountain Top concert free of charge.
5. Enjoy yourself and remember to take pride in being a student of music.
Mountain Top Music Center has a limited number of instruments available for rental on a monthly basis by students enrolled in our educational programs. A rental fee of $15 per month will be charged for all instruments on rental as of the first of each month. Parents are responsible for damage or loss.
Missed Lessons and Makeups:
Students pay for all lessons in the semester regardless of attendance (registrations after the beginning of the semester will be pro-rated). Students should notify the office of any absence as soon as possible, out of courtesy to the instructor. This does not exempt the student from payment.
If a teacher must be absent, the student will be notified as promptly as possible. All teacher absences and weather cancellations will be made up or credited.
Private lesson students registered for an entire term may make up one notified student absence in the 13-week Fall Semester and two notified student absences in the 18-week Spring semester, at the teacher’s discretion. There are no makeups in the 8-week Summer Term.
There are no makeups for student absences from group lessons. If a group lesson is cancelled by Mountain Top, it will be made up.
Mountain Top Music Center will occasionally cancel class due to inclement weather. Weather-related Mountain Top closings will be posted to our website and announced on the recorded message on our office number. If possible, they will also be announced on WMWV 93.5 FM and wmwv.com. If inclement weather starts later in the day, call the office at 447-4737 to check for a recorded message. All activities cancelled due to weather will be made up during make-up week at the end of the semester or by other arrangements.
Mountain Top Music Center reserves the right to cancel any group class that does not meet the required minimum of students.
