We teach lessons year round, for a total of 48 weeks out of the year. Summer camps are limited, but private lessons are open year round.
Each Spring we often get asked these questions:
Q. “How do lessons work in the summer?”
A. MLE is open year round, and we do not close during the summer.
Q. Do a lot of students quit during the summer?
A. Some students withdraw but we get a large influx of students in June and many continue into the Fall.
Q. If we withdraw for the summer, can we keep our spot for Fall?
A. Lessons are first come first serve, so if you withdraw for the summer, we cannot guarantee that we will have the same spot for you in the Fall, as we will open the spot to new students. We will try to put you with the same teacher, but if a teacher fills up in the Summer, regardless of your prior relationship, time with that teacher will not be available come Fall.
Q. Is there a separate registration fee for summer lessons?
A. You do not have to pay a summer registration fee if you continue enrollment through Summer. If you withdraw for summer, you will be considered a new student in Fall and will have to pay a new registration fee.
The big question for all parents and students to consider is:
Do you want to stay with the same teacher in the Fall?
If the answer is YES there are 2 ways to do this:
1. Take advantage of summer make-up cards.
Each student enrolled for summer lessons will be able to make up four lessons in June, July or August by filling out a make-up card. For example, take hour lessons in June and no lessons in July OR no lessons in June and two lessons a week in July.
2. Sub lease your spot to a family member or friend.
You can send a family member or friend in your place for the dates you will miss. Just let the office know who is coming in your place and when. Make sure that they reimburse you directly for the lessons.
If you are taking summer lessons and need a specific time for Fall, please contact us around late July and we will do our best to accommodate you.
Each September, we get calls from students who have been with us for years, but withdrew for the summer. They want to return to the same teacher, day and time, but the spot has been filled by another student. If you LOVE your teacher, keep your spot by using the summer make ups or sub lease your spot.
