  • Policies

    Cancellations

    Students are required to notify the teacher if they are unable to take a lesson. Make-up lessons (one per student per semester) are available for excused absences for all lessons except ballet. Excused absences include student sickness, death in the family, and out of town travel. Notification of at least eight hours in advance entitles the student to a make-up lesson for an excused absence. Please keep your instructor’s phone number(s) and the Conservatory Office number (901.260.5753) handy.

    Make-up Lessons

    Each student is allowed one make-up lesson per semester provided the teacher is notified eight hours in advance and it is an excused absence. In this event, both teacher and student will then decide on a mutually agreeable time for the make-up lesson.

    • No-shows – A missed lesson without a phone call is a no-show and will not be made up.
    • Teacher absences – All lessons due to the teacher’s absence will be made up.
    • Group lessons – Group lessons will not be made up, unless the teacher is absent.

    Payment

    • Option 1 – Payment in full is due by the first lesson.
    • Option 2 – Half of the payment is due by the first lesson with the balance due in 30 days.

    Snow/Inclement Weather Policy

    With the presence of multiple school districts within Shelby County and the surrounding towns, the GBC Conservatory of Music will follow its own schedule of closing for inclement weather. Notification of closing will be posted to the homepage of GBC’s website www.germantownbaptist.org by 8:00 a.m. on the day of closing.
