I understand and agree to the following policies regarding applied music lessons at Garrison Forest School:
1. PAYMENT PROCEDURE. Payment in full is due at the time of registration. 
2. REFUND POLICY . If, following enrollment, you decide to withdraw your child from music lessons, you must do so in writing by emailing Maggie Loukachkina, Applied Music Director (margaritaloukachkina@gfs.org) before the 4th lesson . Otherwise, the School will consider your child enrolled for lessons, and you will be obligated to pay for the full year. No portion of such fees so paid or outstanding will be refunded or prorated.
3. SCHEDULING. ​Each Applied Music Instructor arranges his/her own schedule in consultation with families in September. With nearly 100 students enrolled in our Applied Music Program, it may not be possible to accommodate all scheduling requests. Once a mutually convenient time has been agreed upon for the year, it is exceedingly difficult and usually impossible to change it.
4. MAKE-UP POLICY.​ Any lessons canceled by the instructor will be made up. Lessons missed by students for any reason will not be made up. Lessons missed by school closings, field trips or other special school events will not be made up.
5.  COVID-19 POLICY.​ Due to the continuing impact of Covid-19, lessons may take place in-person with proper precautions (to be set by the school) or over a video platform such as Zoom. Individual teachers and families will agree upon the avenue that works best for all involved.
6. RECITALS. ​Preschool, Lower School, Middle School and Upper School student musicians present one recital at the end of the school year. Students perform in recitals at the discretion of their Applied Music instructor.
7. INSTRUMENTS & MUSIC. ​Garrison Forest School does not provide instruments or music for students. Students who are signed up for lessons must have an instrument at home so they are able to practice regularly. Parents will provide or be charged for sheet music and/or music books.
